Glass can provide UV Protection and Reflection Control
What you need to know when choosing your glass. In a frame, glass is your shield against the elements. It stands in the way of the environment, dust, dirt, insects, and your little Picassos.
Mats and Liners – Custom Framing Options
When should you use a mat?
Mats are used in framing things like artwork, documents, photos and more. When mounting is not an option to maintain the integrity of the artwork, matting is a great solution for holding it in place within the frame.
Mount and Laminate - Dry Mounting
Dry mounting a poster or photograph is a technique of attaching prints to mounting surfaces by heating Shellac tissue between the mount and the print in contrast to a spray (or wet) adhesive.

There are two essential reasons to frame your keepsakes. The first is presentation; presentation is about the appearance factors – selecting frame parts of the style and color that create the most visually attractive display. The second is preservation. Preservation is about keeping your framed treasures in their present condition. That involves secure, yet noninvasive, reversible support inside the frame and constructing a microenvironment to minimize environmental hazards. For your keepsakes on display, preservation framing is the best protection against harmful light, temperature and humidity changes, airborne dust and chemical contaminants, insects, and mechanical damage. Preservation framing provides the best long-term value for displaying your treasures.
Frame it to last.
If you want your artwork or treasured possession to be a legacy for future generations, ask the professional framer to use only preservation-grade mat board and UV glazing. Make sure the framer is experienced in preservation framing techniques before entrusting him or her with your precious mementos and keepsakes.
Professional custom framing is a great way to preserve your art ensuring you many years of enjoyment!
