What is Conservation Picture Framing?


"Conservation Framing" employs the use of materials that have been proven to protect and maintain original art, old photos or restored photographs limited edition prints, in as close to its original condition as possible. If it's worth framing, it's worth protecting by Using Conservation Quality matts and Glass featuring UV Protection on everything you plan to have framed. Ultraviolet light rays are one of the most dangerous elements that your artwork can encounter. It will not only cause your colors to fade to a mere shadow of their former glory, but will cause the materials themselves to begin to break down right in the frame. Conservation Quality picture framing glass is specially formulated to protect framed works of art from the damaging effects of ultraviolet light. By specifying Conservation Glass, you are insuring that over 97% of these most damaging light rays are filtered out before ever coming into contact with your valuables.
Ordinary pulp-based matboard contains acids and lignins which, over a period of time, damage the artwork they come in contact with.
Conservation Quality matboard is free of all acids, lignins and other impurities found in ordinary "pulp" board. The result is an inert or pH neutral board which will cause no damage to the artwork it encases as time goes by.
