Conservation framing is when artworks or objects are framed using practices and materials that are archival and therefore protect and conserve your works. Conservation framing also focuses on allowing organic materials, ie. paper, fabrics etc. room and freedom to contract and expand so they are not stressed by rigid binding or mounting and avoid the risk of the artwork or object tearing or splitting because the framing has restricted the art from being able to naturally expand or contract.
The processes we practice for conservation framing are reversible and the glues, adhesives removable meaning you can detach the artwork later without causing stress or endangering the work.
We use only conservation grade materials such as rice paper hinges. Our mat boards are:
Buffered with Calcium Carbonate
Fade, Scuff and Bleed Resistant
