Agree with this, except that for prints smaller than 8x10, find that the 2ply does work OK, with a 4 ply overmat. Anything larger and when I can afford it, much prefer the 4ply mount with 4ply over mat. They just look good...if I could afford the 8ply (and cut it) I would. If you can't afford the Artcare board at least go with the good boards from one of the other vendors like LI. A well mounted print adds to the overall appearance of a photo, but a poorly mounted one moves the focus from the print to the matting job....just my opinion though. Never really cared for the foamcore mounts, but that may just be me...makes a nice backing material when framing though.
