    Mat Board

    The title says it all, where are you getting your mat board? WHo is the cheapest? I want 8, 4, and 2 ply white in 16x20 and 20x24 sizes.

    Forget Light Impressions, too expensive and not very good service.

    How about not ready cut but 32x40" sheets? Anyone know where they get their from? I prefer to cut my own as I have odd sizes for standard matts.

    Thanks,

    Kev

    Couldn't you have posted this a day or two ago? I just put in an order to LI for some 8 ply but I have never ordered from them before. I would have went with Superiour Archival but I didn't need a 25 pack of them

    Shipping to Mexico on this size is outrageous, I have the cutter to do it, but prefer pre cut.

    Silver,

    WHo is superior archival? do they have a web site. I am planning on getting at least 75 boards, so I would not mind the 25 pack.

    I have been ordering mine from Dick Blick, http://www.dickblick.com .
    They ship the 30x40 without any added oversize charges.

    I have a local Pearl Paint but they are a bit more expensive and have a worse selection. They are often out of anything even close to White
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    They are wholesalers. to get the good price breaks on cases of mat board you need to be able to buy 200 sheets at a time or more. The last time I got some from them it was $187 for a case of 25 sheets of 32x40. They also carry Nielsen frames.

    I would be willing to go in on a couple of cases. Maybe we could get a group order for the bay area people. I can scoot over that way and pick it up when I next go to SF.

    I bought some for the first time from Superior Archival a few months ago. It's damn nice board and I'm very happy with it. I don't know if they're the cheapest though. They cut custom sized windows for me and did a great job. Alan Geiser is the guy who I talked to.
