Proper framing matters

Proper framing method and material used are the most important factors in preserving a photograph or artwork.  That is why we use only conservation grade backboard, mat, glazing, tapes, etc. for framing each piece. 
Here is a sample of our framing:

  • Conservation acid-free frame;
  • Conservation mounting board;
  • Buffered Archival mat;
  • backing board;
  • Decorative Italian backing paper;
  • TruVue glass with protective coating against UV;
  • Sealed against dust penetration;
  • Moulding selected in a color/style that complements the image.
