Whether you’re working with a wood picture frame or a metal picture frame, American Frame has the picture framing supplies that can not only present your art, photo, paper or object in the best light, but help preserve it for years and decades to come.
“Preservation framing” is when the materials chosen for a framing package help preserve and protect a piece of art from the elements that could come in contact with it. Those potentially damaging elements can come from outside or inside a frame treatment, or from the frame treatment itself. To mitigate these effects, preservation framing solutions are recommended.
Sealing tape: The finishing touch on a well-preserved framing treatment.
First, a brush up in chemistry. Acids are the enemy of artwork. Take newspapers, for example. Old articles and clippings are some of the most popular items for framing. Newspaper consists of wood pulp, which can yellow over time. And, when mat board is added to the framing treatment, an alkaline effect takes place that can emit harmful acids.
Sealing tape is the answer. American Frame’s options for sealing tape are anti-acidic, and of exceptional quality in preserving invaluable, one-of-a-kind pieces.
