New Alpharag Mat Products for You!
Frame Destination continues to expand its line of archival mat board products. This month we are thrilled to announce the addition of eleven (!) new colors to our line of 8-ply Alpharag. Previously this top-of-the-line, conservation-grade mat board has only been available in 3 neutral colors (Pure White, Pearl, and Ebony); this new offering is a great way to add creative color to your matting while retaining the premium quality of 8-ply Alpharag.
You can also take advantage of our brand new line of 4-ply Alpharag, in 25 colors, and a 2-ply Alpharag, for use in archival mounting. The 2-ply comes in two shades of white that match 2 of the whites in the 4-ply and 8-ply rag, so your float mounts can be perfectly color-matched.

Bainbridge 8-ply Alpharag mat board is the thickest and highest grade of archival image preservation that money can buy (most other companies’ 8-ply matboard looks like 6-ply in comparison). If you are not already aware of the benefits offered by the Alpharag line, here they are:
Bainbridge Alpharag Features
• 100% cotton rag
• Solid color throughout - from surface to bevel
• Includes Artcare™ Archival - Plus protection*
• Acid and Lignin Free
• Fade and bleed resistant
• Buffered to maintain alkaline pH
• Passes the Photographic Activity Test
• Meets and exceeds ANSI/NISO A39.48-1992 Regulations for paper permanence
Last but not least, Frame Destination also offers “blanks” (mat board with no pre-cut window opening), and “raw sheets.” Blanks come in standard sizes, while raw sheets are one size and come straight from the manufacturer. We just dropped the prices on blanks and raw sheets; you can find them by clicking the “Components” tab on the FD website. For those of you who cut your own mat sizes or window openings, this mat board is a great deal!
* The Bainbridge Artcare™ process proactively traps and neutralizes pollutants and acid by-products that can damage artwork.
