"I've ordered several times from the MatShop now and have never had any issues... the first order I ever made I messed up on the opening size for my mats. Someone caught the mistake and phoned to alert me. I was very grateful that I didn't end up with a bunch of useless mats! The website is easy to navigate and ordering has never been a hassle like it is with so many other online shops. The orders are always received in good time."

Conservation matboard is of archival quality and will provide a lifetime of protection. Matboard core is white. You must use conservation (acid-free) backings and tape with these mats for effective protection.

Choosing an Opening Size
Openings are cut to the size you specify; normally you will want an opening 1/2" smaller per dimension than your artwork. This gives space to hinge and prevents it falling through the mat opening. So, for example, an 8x10 photo would use a 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 opening.

A reveal is how much the bottom (or inner) mat shows in the opening. Common reveals are 3/16" or 1/4".

Please check that your chosen reveal and opening size still leaves at least a 1" border on all sides of the mat. For example, for a 5"x7" mat with a 3/16" reveal, the opening can be no larger than 2 5/8" x 4 5/8".
