    Frame and Mat Board Suppliers

    Who are your go to suppliers for metal frames and Westminster cotton boards?
    Any experience with "Archival Methods"?

    Moderators: I could not find a good fit to place this question so followed a few other posts with framing and mounting questions.
    Feel free to move to a different category.
    Thanks to All.

    I've been using Archival Methods for mat board and some other things and American Frame for Nielsen frames for a number of years.

    I have had nothing but good experiences with Archival Methods. In particular, their shipping practices are stellar. Everything is very carefully packed so there is almost no chance of damage in transit. Same goes for American Frame.

    If you buy in quantity, you get a nice discount and save on shipping.

    Jerry, Is Seattle area I buy from Jayness Moulding in Seattle. They deliver locally. I am on Camano Island so there is a small fee. Recently I bought a box of Cresent matte board, Neilsen frames, and uv glass. They were quick and everything was correct.

    Re: Frame and Mat Board Suppliers

    I live out in the sticks so everything is done by delivery for me. I use pictureframe.com for my frames, and have for over 30 years (previously known as graphikdimensions). They have done a good job and corrected the few errors quickly.

    Also, I've had to switch to ordering mat board from Dick Blick in Chicago, as my supplier in Seattle will no longer ship. I hate the idea of my matboards bouncing in their package all the way from Chicago, but I hate driving into Seattle even more. Blick has done a pretty good job of packaging, I think.
