Bainbridge Papermat

Comparable to the Crescent Decorative line, Bainbridge Papermat is a buffered, acid-free line of matboard not intended for conservation mounting. Providing a complete range of the most popular colors, Bainbridge Papermat has consistent colors and clean, creamy bevels.

Color Swatches

I have scanned actual mats with a Datacolor Spectraflash SF600X spectrophotometer and converted the LAB values to RGB. With a monitor calibrated to D65 and a gamma of 2.2 the colors displayed will be as close to the real thing as is digitally possible.

However, whites and most off-whites do not convert to RGB values with visual accuracy.

Also, metallics cannot be duplicated. The metallic swatches on this page do convey an overall color appearance.

Labels in blue indicate a pattern. I am showing the overall color of the mat.

Labels in red indicate swatches I consider standard colors and are normally in stock.
