Every element of our matted prints are selected for the highest archival quality.
Somerset has always been the first paper choice among serious artists and printmakers. Ever since the 1700s and the days of handmade paper, Somerset has enjoyed a reputation for quality that has continued to grow through the years. Now Epson brings you this old-world paper, with an ink jet coating, to meet the quality requirements of the most demanding printmaker. Somerset Velvet for Epson is a 100% cotton, acid-free paper that delivers long-lasting prints when printed with EPSON UltraChrome Ink.
Our window mats are from the Crescent RagMat line. They are made from 100% natural cotton that has not been treated with chlorine bleach and contain no artificial brighteners. We offer two styles of window mat. In the standard mat style the window mat overlaps the image by 1/8 inch. We can also leave 1/2 inch of space between the image and the window mat so you can title and sign the print in this space.
The window mat will be hinged to the backing with acid free tape. You can choose either a 2ply Crescent RagMat or 1/8 inch Crescent Acid-Free Fome-Cor as the backing for your print. Your print will be attached to the backing with removable acid-free tape.
