What is Archival Framing?

Display and preserve your art.

Archival framework refers to the series of methods implemented by the framer that promotes the long-term health of artwork on display  by controlling environmental threats to its well-being, such as humidity, temperature, light, dust, etc. 

Archival frames are built firstly by hand as a wooden frame. From there, it is hand-processed and customized to display your art behind a protective layer of UV-acrylic. It is mounted on acid-free matte-board and spaced to assure zero contact between art, glass and outside environment. The process is further completed using all acid-free materials. Archival frames feature rear dust cover and additionally include all appropriate hardware for hanging or display.

Archival framing is an age-old technique for preserving artwork.
