Rag Mat board
from Central Oregon - Bend
Comments about Crescent RagMat Matboard:
I use the rag mats when framing my artwork. It's beautiful and archival so it will last and last. I wish the Crescent company would stop putting the barely visible logo on the reverse side, or make it more obvious.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My new favorite matboard for photographs

I'd used another brand for many years but now prefer this Crescent board due to its "whiteness".

Great deal, lots of colors, great quality

Use this color for most framing projects. It's a beautiful creamy white that enhances most pieces.

Top of the heap for conservation
from Greenville, SC
I use this mat to prepare fine art photography for galleries and museums. So far, it's very stable; I've never had a print burn. That being said, I've only been using it for 5 years, but from my research I expect not problems. There are lots of colors to choose from, and lots of shades of colors. From a certain point of view, there are too many. I bought a corner set from Crescent, and there are something like 20+ whites. Some of them are obviously different, but when I was choosing a white for this order, there were three that when put side to side, I couldn't tell the difference. Because these are 100% rag, you need to start with a fresh blade for every cutting job. IF you don't, you can end up with ragged edges.
Crescent RagMat Simply the Best
from Beaufort, SC
Both black and white matboards are impeccably finished and have crisp, white cores. They beat anything I have used before.
Crescent matboard comes in hundreds of colors, but, besides color, how do you choose which board best fits your needs? Connie presents Crescent's Decorative line, Select line and RagMat line and explains the benefits of each to help you make the right decision for your artwork.
Protect your fine works of art so they will last a lifetime. Crescent RagMat Matboard core and backing are made from 100% cotton which is naturally acid and lignin free. The surface papers are made with quality pigments that are rigorously tested to ensure they are lightfast and colorfast. These boards conform to the highest conservation standards and are the premium choice for artists and framers.
When matting your treasured art pieces, protecting them is just as important as selecting the right color of matboard to enhance their beauty. Connie explains what causes damage to artworks on paper and which matboards can safeguard your art against these elements.
