"The mat boards just arrived and they are perfect!  I’m really amazed with your packaging and safe transport.

 We will definitely order from you again!"


Crescent Cardboard Co. serves framing, commercial art, fine art, and photography markets in the U.S. and over 100 countries worldwide. Scroll down for our large selection of Crescent Mat Board.


Packaging mat board & foam board

1.  To insure that your mat board arrives to you in the best possible condition, must completely fill the specially designed shipping carton  -  Mat board must be ordered in increments of 25 sheets or the equivalent of 25 sheets (i.e. 25, 50, 75, 100, etc). 

2.  All 25 sheets do not have to be the same.  Some boards are thicker than others and take up more room. You may choose different colors (i.e. Red, Green, Blue, etc.) and different types (i.e. Rag Mat, Black Core etc.) You may also fill up your carton with Foam Core or Mounting Board, as long as the space equals 25 sheets or the equivalent of 25 sheets.  

The best products are only as good as the package that protects them.
