The Importance of Custom Framing
Fine Custom Framing is an essential part of properly displaying your artwork. Whether you are framing a painting, photograph, document, print, or even a 3-dimensional object, choosing the proper color, style, size, and museum quality materials is of critical importance to enhancing the beauty of your art and maintaining its condition for a lifetime.
At Overdue Recognition Art Gallery we can protect your valuable art from water damage, foxing, acid migration and more, with conservation framing.
What does this mean?
.1.acid-free mat board that doesn’t yellow and won’t stain your art
.2.acid-free backing board that prevents acid migration and yellowing on the back of your art
.3. assorted tapes that seal the rabbet, keeping wood away from your art and bugs from inside the frame
.4. acid-free hinges that secure artwork without causing damage.
The result is beautifully framed pieces that will never deteriorate. You want to protect and present your piece. Conservation framing will ensure that years from now the print you just purchased while on vacation at an art show is protected from damage and aging. Please keep in mind that this is just an overview—the field of conservation framing is vast and detailed.
