Gold Foiled Elite Mats

A simple yet elegant mat based on designs from the early 1900’s, the Elite mat is embossed in rich gold foil on our cocoa brown cover stock and has a white backer attached. All our mats are designed to slip easily into your standard frames and are made with archival paper for long life. Available in all sizes in oval or rectangle openings.

Our Loss, Your Gain!

We got carried away (well, we should have been carried away...) and printed way too many of these mats. Really.


Sigh.. Don't ever hire a new press guy. Not that we hired a new press guy. In fact, we haven't had a new press guy for 30 years. But our OLD press guy is, well, old. And he tends to forget things sometimes. Sigh.

We have a LOT of these mats available, and we are selling them REALLY CHEAP!

All sizes are 25% off!

As many as you want!
(Until we run out, after that they are gone.)

Copper Metallic Mats


These mats were an early run in our Deluxe Metallic design. The copper Deluxe design on brown cover stock gives a nice warm, subdued glow that doesn't overwhelm the mat. We ultimately decided to go with a brighter golden color for the Metallic line, so these are a little different than our stock Metallic. Available for 8x10 photo fitting an 11x14 frame.

74c each. Oval opening only. Check for current inventory
