At Design Frame we use only materials and methods that will do nothing to harm or add to the natural deterioration of the item itself. We know the technical stuff so you don’t have to.
We use only acid and lignin-free mounting and mat boards, papers, tapes and adhesives. We can even apply a de-acidification treatment to extend the life of newsprint and other acid-rich papers. We recommend conservation grade glass to help block the harmful ultra-violet light rays from natural and fluorescent lighting which will cause colors to fade. We also seal the backs of our wood based frames with acid-free dust covers to guard against pollution, dust and insects.
Our framing techniques will extend the life of your irreplaceable material; our design sense will enhance the presentation of it without overpowering it.
