Conservation framing methods are used worldwide to preserve and protect works of art. At FrameSource we can help you maintain the quality, appearance and value of your artwork by using:
- Archival mats are 100% Cotton or Rag fiber mats that are naturally acid-free and lignin-free.
- Acid free adhesive is used to hinge the artwork onto the mat. In general, two hinges in the top corners are required to support the piece. This allows for natural movement with changes in the environment caused by heat, and humidity fluctuations.
- Museum grade glass blocks 99% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV light that can cause artwork to fade and deteriorate over time. It lowers reflection to provide you with optimal clarity and a nearly invisible finish.
- Acid free backing is made of sturdy acid free materials to support and protect the artwork from behind.
Whether it’s a monetary or sentimental value, conservation framing preserves the value and enjoyment of the artwork for generations.
