Comments about Blick Pre-Cut Gallery Mats:
Several of the mats in my shipment had slight issues in their cuts. The beveled corners were smooshed in some cases, or slightly overcut in others. I do appreciate the size opening availability. But I'm going to try to cut my own as I'm not really happy with the quality of these cuts. They're not "massively" bad, but bad enough that I wouldn't use them to mount any prints for sale.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love these thick beveled mats. I buy these frequently and the quality is always the same, great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
For larger sizes like 16 x 20, the backing board is a little thin. It's bendable like heavy poster board. For 11 x 14, or smaller sizes, it's okay. But for the larger sizes, it has just a little bit of a cheesy, unprofessional feel. The matte itself is quite nice: double thick, cleanly and accurately cut, neutral bright white in color. The shrink-wrapped package has no labeling; I'd feel much better if it had a sticker or something that said the whole package is acid-free. The web site says it is, but when you have the package in your hands, there's nothing that says that, which makes me nervous about assuring my customers of the matte's archival quality.
Add a matt for quality presentation

Love the quality- not so much the price.Would like clear envelopes included
nice thick mats
Thick mats with angled cut and backer boards, great for framing in standard sizes.
Crisp and clean
The 5x5 opening is perfect for mixed media art. I wish they offered the 4x4 in and 8x10 frame size.

As a precut mat, I am impressed by the cut of it..and on sale, too...wonderful for an almost 80 year old nun and retired art educator. Quality...I have always used museum cut and weighted mat so is great for me now.
8 ply mats for watercolors
from Groton, MA
These mats come in packs of 6, a good value for the money. I like the 8 ply (thicker, as opposed to 4 ply). They really set off watercolors nicely.
BEST IN THE MARKET
from WASHINGTON DC
I was so pleased to get not only the mat but a back board that is acid free. Great deal!
