"I received my order and everything was exactly as I ordered it (dimensions and colors). Packaging was great too! Service was excellent. I called 4 days after ordering on the internet, in order to add items...the items were added without any problem. I received my order faster than expected. I will order again from MatShop!"

About Us

Serving you since 1983


Thank you for visiting the MatShop.

This division of M. D. Arndt & Co. Ltd. began as a result of our involvement with artists, photographers and crafts people for over 29 years. During that time we constantly heard about the need for reasonably priced framing supplies and materials to allow you to compete in the marketplace. We also heard from companies who were looking for those same supplies for corporate awards, gifts and promotions. In every case, local custom framing prices were out of reach.

We began simply by offering a program called Create-a Mat, developed by Jim Fishwick. Jim was able to show many people how to combine simply cut mats and make single and double mats cost effectively. This lead to some of our most popular products such as the rainbow packs and double mat program. Now by using the Matomatic tool, you can even upload your own image and see how different mat and frame combinations work before placing an order and we are working to provide you with an ever expanding array of options for mats, frames and other supplies.

Please visit us often. We have regular monthly specials and we appreciate being able to serve you. If you call us during our business hours, you can speak to a real person who cares about giving you the best advice and information about our products and how they can help you succeed with your project.

As a company, we are committed to our customer’s success, to environmental responsibility and fair pricing. All of our products are designed to be as “Green” as possible, to use recyclable or recycled materials and are packaged using our own in-house recycled packaging material for on-going sustainability. Products are high quality and we stand behind our product and our service.

We look forward to serving you.

MatShop has its head office and manufacturing facility in Victoria on Vancouver Island in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. It is also represented in a new Retail Frameshop in Langford, BC - WestShore Custom Picture Framing. MatShop also maintains a shipping facility in Ferndale, Washington.
