tape to use when matting a pastel

Can anyone tell me what kind of tape to use when matting a pastel, or point me to a thread?

Thank you so much!

Sue, I use Linen Hinging Tape by Lineco. It says it is for hinging a window mat to a mounting mat. It also claims to be acid-free and of archival quality. It's a peel and stick tape - very easy to use.

I, too, prefer the Linen Hinging tape. Works well.
