Conservation framing techniques & materials ensure that your treasured artwork, photograph, or heirloom can be displayed safely for generations. Due to environmental issues like humidity, light, temperature and time, your artwork can begin to fade, warp, or deteriorate if not framed properly. Our framers are trained in the preservation practices that protect your project. The designers at FCF take the time to educate our clients on the proper materials and the framing process. Your art is safe in the hands of Fourth Corner Frames! Stop by for a free consultation to learn more about conservation framing.
Matting isn’t just for decoration – it offers strength and support in addition to providing sufficient air space between the glazing and the artwork. All of our matting is acid-free to protect your artwork from discoloration. Matting is available in a wide variety of colors, as well as fabric and textured finishes. We also offer 100% rag mats for museum-quality displays.
Mounting & Hinging
Proper acid-free hinging & mounting materials are a necessity in conservation framing. We want to make sure your artwork is mounted in such a way that it is completely reversible, will safely support the artwork, and will not cause damage over time. We know how to use a variety of hinging methods and mounting corners for these purposes.
One of the most important aspects of your conservation framing package is the glazing. Both glass and acrylic are now available with UV filtering to protect your print or photograph from dangerous ultraviolet light rays. These are also available in many non-reflective finishes for the best clarity. We’re proud to offer the highest quality conservation glazing products available from Tru Vue, Inc.
