When it comes to framing your precious artwork or photography, choosing the best framing materials to support its overall presentation is essential. Custom framing options, particularly those available online, can span a wide array of options—making it difficult to determine which ones are the right choice for your framing needs and preferences. One easy way to overcome this challenge is by ordering samples of the various framing materials you’re considering.
How you decide to treat your print will directly affect its lifespan and value. Improperly framed photos are susceptible to environmental damage such as yellowing, fading, tearing, scratching, and even mold.
