    We are a sponsor of APUG. We have Bainbridge ArtCarearchival mat board (the best board out there and the one we use ourselevs, a custom cut overmat service with our computerized mat cutter, archival storage boxes, and archival negative folders for large-format negatives, all at prices lower than anywhere else. We also have Nielsen metal-section frames at great prices. We have no minimums and special sizes are treated just like standard sizes--everything is custom cut. www.lodimaarchivalmaterials.com. Many of our new customers are disgruntled Light Impressions former customers.

    Michael, I tried calling Lodima to place an order but there was no answer. I feel like the universe is against me matting my work!

    Archival methods, I believe was one of their suppliers at one time.

    Might be better choice.

    Rod, you're everywhere! Haha! Thanks for the link, I'll check them out now. I tried calling Light Impressions again right after I got your email and sure enough it rang for 20 min.

    Keep trying...Lodima Archival Materials has great service, and is appropriately priced. Frame Destinations, as you might know, is another APUG sponsor, and their products and service are also first rate.

    Figured out why I couldn't reach them. They have to update the homepage with their new number. For reference, the new Lodima number is 610-847-2007.

    I called and spoke with Michael A. Smith which was a nice surprise and got my order in with no problem. I'm looking forward to receiving these boards.

    Thanks everyone for the help.

    P.S. Lodima doesn't yet carry buffer mount paper for dry mounting the prints to the board (but I think they might in the near future). Can anyone recommend a good source for acid free archival buffer mount paper? Thanks.

    Just bought some from B&H.

    You will also need some tyvek tape, or the equivalent, to tape the boards together...and you will also need a small amount of release paper...and a tacking iron...I assume that you already have most of what was mentioned, but just in case......:}

    I'm confused. Are you seeking the dry mount tissue that goes between the print and board or "release paper" that goes between the press and artwork?

    I've been successful obtaining dry mount tissue on EBay. I've heard folks mention parchment paper as a substitute for release paper.

    Good luck,

    I've only ever called it dry mount tissue or buffer tissue. Im talking about the material that adheres the print to the board when you put it in the press and apply heat.

    Depending on what size you need, Freestyle is an excellent supplier, and not far from you.
