I have a couple of question regarding matting:

1) What color should be used for the matte? One contest that I considered entering required photos to be matted in a 'museum quality white' (whatever that is).

2) I like the 2 x 3 format of our cameras. Yet stock mattes available at local art supply stores are in 5 x 7, 8 x 10, 11 x 14, etc. Oft times the composition of the photos I take do not fit these formats. The alternative is custom matting and at times framing. Anyone know of a online business that has stock 2 x 3 mattes available?

Thanks in advance for your answers and comments.
