James Cropper Mills

To manufacture our matboard to the highest possible standards, we enlisted the expertise of  James Cropper Mill founded in 1845, located on the edge of the historic English Lake Districts national park in Cumbria, Northern England.

James Cropper is a well respected name with a long history in the paper industry and is in fact, the world’s only matboard manufacturer that is actually integrated with a paper mill.

The combination of a paper mill that manufactures raw product and then directly converts that product to matboard offers significant advantages in both guarantee of supply and manufacturing costs.

Having full control from pulp to finished products allows James Cropper full control over the elements which go in to producing a quality board and the consistency of colour from batch to batch.

At the same time as having full control of the manufacturing, James Cropper have a cost advantage by doing their own converting, eliminating the extra cost of a converter who would need to add an additional margin on the way to determining the cost price.

James Cropper have been manufacturing archival papers & boards for over 120 years, and matboards for over 60 years, however their ability to produce quality papers does not stop there.

The Cropper Mill has also been manufacturing speciality papers for some of the worlds most famous fashion brands. These renowned brands, including Dunhill, Selfridges and Chivas Regal, appreciate the necessity to have their products represented in the same corporate colours time after time with no compromise on quality.
