Given the importance of preserving one’s works of art or photography, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of the role framing treatments play in this effort. Not all frame types and materials feature the same level of protection for effectively preserving a work’s essence and quality. That said, the framing products you choose should depend on the specific project at hand, your overall budget and your goals for displaying and preserving the piece.
