Its decorative paper is highly bleed and fade resistant. Picture framers should use this type of mounboard for mounting open edition prints, posters and photography.
Option two is Aspects Picture Framing’s “Conservation Range”. Our most popular quality Mountboard. These are 100 percent alpha cellulose conservation quality boards. They are lignum free and are buffered with calcium carbonate. These are very good quality mountboards and are age resistant. At Aspects we recommend this quality of mountboard for use with fine art prints, limited editions, valuable documents and photography.
The third option is our range of “Museum” mountboard. These are the finest mountboards manufacured from one hundred percent cotton rag. They are solid colour boards. They are unbuffered and lignun free. Though these mountboards are more expensive Aspects Picture Framing recommends there use when framing valuable pieces of original art, rare and antique documents, fine art prints and valuable photography.
Ok, you’ve chosen your mountboard colour and quality. Check its available in the thickness you require. Are you happy with white core?
