I only buy three colors. Usually the more you buy the cheaper it gets. The mat board does not go bad like food so you can buy as much as you can afford and store. Just make sure you get it in a plastic bag inside a cardboard box. Keeps it clean, dry and away from light that fades. The fewer colors the better. Keep the cut outs. You might want to do some small prints.

Don't buy mat board at Aron Bros. or a similar retail shop. Way too expensive. I would think Cleveland would have a framer supply shop so you could buy wholesale. Go to Crescent Mat web site and look for sources. You should not have to pay more than the prices I gave you.
