MUSEUM MATTED PRINT
The Silver standard of Fine Art Printing, with lifetime no-fade guarantee!
A pigment paper print with archival rating of hundreds of years is laminated with a highly scratch resistant UV inhibiting overlay and is then carefully matted behind a Crescent Museum Solid Rag, 8 ply, 100% pure cotton Matte. Offered in White or Black these are solid core, meaning the matte is a solid color all the way through. These mattes are naturally acid-free, lignin- free, and museum grade. The backboard is 1/8th inch buffered, acid-free foam board made from 100% virgin alpha-cellulose. Matted in what is called a “conservation safe manner,” the print is not permanently bound to the matte or backboard allowing the picture to be removed and re-matted, if desired. Mattes offered only for print sizes up to 48 inches in length.
This print type has the highest color gamut of any print type in the industry. The colors are deep and rich, the whites pure and the blacks complete. These pigment paper prints have been tested to last over 100 years behind standard glass in normal viewing environments. When put behind UV inhibiting glass or laminates the archival quality of these prints has been proven to last over 200 years! If one of your Museum Matted Prints fades, Tomas will replace it at no cost to you!
