Wendy, I've been buying the Bainbridge museum board. Dick Blick
repackages it and sells the set of mats and backing boards in sets of
6 for $23. You can get either pre-cut mats or blanks you cut yourself.
They're 100% rag. I've been very pleased with them so far.
DB has them in both black and white, 11X14 and 16X20, with a variety
of opening sizes and placemets:
So sorry about your bad experience with Light Impressions.
