Conservation and Preservation
Whether you are framing a photograph from a recent vacation or an antique work of art, all of the materials used in our framing projects are designed to preserve and protect the item being framed. We only use high quality conservation mat boards, acid free backing boards and either wood or metal frames (never plastic). All of these materials are designed to promote protection for the item being framed and minimize the damage caused by pollutants and acidity found in paper and fabric items.
There are different levels of conservation quality available in all materials used but even the most basic framing job is performed without using acidic or destructive materials. Details on higher levels of conservation quality materials including UV protective glass, rag boards and conservation quality backing boards are outlined below.
