Archival Framing Methods and Materials
Here at Tomorrow’s Treasures, we specialize in conservation framing. Conservation framing is the use of materials and techniques which provide protection to framed works of art on paper. There are different levels according to the quality and specification of the materials used.
Paper is sensitive to its surroundings: it can be adversely affected by dampness, changes in temperature and humidity, restriction of movement, and exposure to light. Paper will also react to the materials with which it is in contact with, such as acidic support boards and self adhesive tapes. Evidence of damage caused by adverse conditions can be seen in pictures with mount burns, foxing (small brown spots), fading of pigments or darkening and increasing brittleness of the paper.
To ensure that your pieces will last for generations, we use only high-quality conservation materials that will not have a negative impact on your artwork, including:
- Acid-free mats and backboards
- Fine quality Asian hinging papers
- Reversible and neutral conservation adhesives
- Dust covers applied to the back of the frame to protect from environmental damage
- Appropriate UV-filtering glass or acrylic glazing materials (While acrylic can offer greater protection from ultraviolet rays, it can also create static electricity which can harm materials such as pastels, chalk or charcoal)
- Use of mats or spacers to separate the artwork from the glass or acrylic glazing
- Assurance that any mounting techniques used are reversible
