Museum Quality Matboard...

There are two kinds of mats that are considered to be archival. The first is alpha cellulose board which is a natural cellulose board that has been chemically altered, cleaned and buffered to remain stable and safe for artwork. Alpha cellulose board comes in a wide range of colors. Most alpha cellulose boards have a bright white core.

The other type of conservation board is rag board. Rag board is made from 100% cotton. Acid and lignin-free, it is stable, safe and strong. Rag board has been used for generations with great success to protect artwork in museums and fine collections. Traditionally, rag board was available in a few shades of white and grey, but today rag boards are available with a huge variety of surface colors, having white or cream cores.

A Cornucopia of Mouldings!

Having been in the framing business for over twenty years has its advantages. We know what our customers are looking for and have made it a point to stock some of the most interesting and reasonably priced mouldings available.

We keep over 200 profiles in stock at all times, and we discount the mouldings we stock 30% off every day. We simply keep the best profiles on sale all the time. We carry over 1500 moulding samples from more than 14 different manufacturers.

That means that our frames don't all look alike.

We have ornate Baroque styles from Spain, Renaissance metal leaf mouldings from Germany, hardwoods from America, and Italian marbles and burls.

You will find great diversity at Christine's Gallery. We stock styles to fit comfortably in every decor. Maybe that's why so many decorating firms bring their clients to our door to find just the right look for their rooms.

Christine's Gallery carries products from many companies. If you don't see your favorite moulding company on our list to the right, ask us. We may already be thinking about picking up their products.
