Rising boards were created by Rising Paper more than 50 years ago to supply museums’ demands for a true conservation and preservation framing board. Over the years, in conjunction with Legion Paper, Rising Paper expanded the range into a family of museum boards known for their exceptional and unmatched quality. Today, under the stewardship of Legion Paper, Rising is the first choice of framers, museums, and conservators for the mounting, matting, and preservation of fine prints and precious documents. In fact, Rising exceeds the standards set by the Library of Congress.
Machine-made of 100% cotton, Rising Museum Boards are acid-free, neutral pH, and buffered with calcium carbonate for added protection, with a color that is solid throughout and will not fade, scuff, or bleed. Rigid quality control ensures consistency across the range, producing a board free of specks, dirt, or blemishes.
The preservation characteristics of Rising make it the ideal matting and mounting solution for fine art. Its superior cutting quality makes for an ultra-sharp and clean bevel to enhance the framed art.
The range consists of a focused color palette to complement all works of art, sized for French matting. Many artists find them ideal for various fine art techniques that include drawing, charcoal, pastel, silkscreen, and letterpress.
Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
