Mats are commonly used for decoration. By choosing the proper mat,  or mats, you enhance the look of your framed piece. We can assist you  in choosing the proper mats that will draw the eye towards the art or a  particular key element of the piece.

In addition to decoration, mats are also used for preservation and  conservation. We carry a large selection of acid-free mats and fabric  mats from Crescent [RagMat, Museum], “made of strong cotton fibers,  which are naturally free of any chemicals that could harm your artwork”.

Most importantly, the mat is used to separate the art from the glass,  protecting it from any condensation that can develop on the inside of the  glass and that can easily be transferred onto the artwork. Damages that  may affect your piece include water damage, mold or mildew.

During the mounting process of your artwork, the mat plays another  major function. While you may find some photographs, or paper item  art, glued onto the backing and therefore preventing anyone in the future  from removing it without damage; at Jack’s Gallery, we use “photo  corners” (4 small triangular pockets into which the corners of the art are  put in) instead of forever gluing them down onto the backing. The mat  will be on top of the art, hiding its corners and holding it in place.

Your piece will be sealed between the mat and the backing, both acid-free.
