I worked for several years in framing store so it kills me to by “mass produced” pre-cut mats. I have new pieces of art that I want to preserve so I thought matting them would be best for storage. These mats are awesome. They are acid-free, a bright white, nicely cut beveled edge! I’m so very impressed. They arrived plastic wrapped AND boxed so that absolutely no damage was done. I immediately went to look for more. I have more packs in my shopping cart when I run out. I don’t want to forget about the Golden State company.
I really like these. I do art shows - photography - and bagged a bunch of prints all at one time over the fall. These were fantastic. I liked where the glue strip is - slightly down the back side, not at the very top. They are crystal clear and sturdy. Very nice!
I'm an artist and sell my work online and at art shows. Just tried these bags for the first time and am very pleased. They are crystal clear and professional. Very impressive!
This set is great. It has all the mats, backing boards and envelopes you need for 10 photos or prints at 5x7 inches. The items are neatly packaged and this keeps them from getting bend, mashed, or ruined. I'll be buying this package again as well as the one in black. For the money it's great quality stuff. Remember, you'll also need some tape (like Scotch 1/2 wide) and some thin double-sided tape as well to stick the backing board to the mat once the print is mounted.
I doubt they are acid-free, so I wouldn't put these on any original artwork that can't be replaced, but they work well for prints or photos. They arrived as advertised and are priced really well. No complaints!
First order from Golden State. Always heard good things. 50 mats, backers, and bags. Mats are great, bags are good quality, backers are CHEAP CARDBOARD with a grey core - not cut from mat board As a set this is unusable. I sent a message to Golden State but, after a week, no response. I'll stick with US Art Supply going forward.
These are great. Purchased with archival mounting tape you’ll make your artwork look extremely professional. I wish I had just purchased these when I was in art school. I would have saved myself a fortune and time and frustration buying and cutting mats myself. I would always mess them up and have to buy more. The box they arrived in is handy to use for storage as well. Amazing product. Strong recommendation. Price is better than plain matboard anyway, let alone the cost of time and frustration. No brainer.
Very nice and inexpensive Picture Mats Mattes, perfectly protected in the box from shipping damage. All what is needed included in the kit. You only need to have glue to complete whole assembly
These are great quality, l have ordered these 3 times and always impressed. I use them for my arr prints. Great value too. Which they made and aold 11x14 ones for 8x10 opening.
Very pleased with the quality of the purchased.
after spending hours making drawings and paintings, it's great to have a method available to store them and keep them looking flawless.
not all were perfectly cut and some of the matts were damaged on the corners.
These are fantastic. New to selling paintings but these make them look quite professional. I will be buying more when I need them.
These are great. Zero issues with quality. Came packaged very well. Perfect for displaying pictures for sale
Liked the whole product very solid. 5/5 quality
I bought these to use for packaging 5X7 prints to sell. Makes a very professional presentation and the adhesive on the sleeves is easy to seal. I will be purchasing these again.
Great complete set ready for framing!
Amazing!! Used them as party favours for our destination wedding. Each person took away a professional photo of their family. They were perfect!
I really liked the plastic sleeve that produces a made for the customer finish on my water collision photos.
As described. Thank you!
Second time ordering and will order again. Great price, great quality, fast delivery!
Exactly what I needed. Bevel cut . Everything useable.
Great product for great price
