All framing is done by the professional team at FrameMakers International. They use museum standard conservation framing techniques.
Matting and mounting processes both lend themselves firstly to protecting the photograph and secondly to enhancing the aesthetic qualities. They use only acid free mat with the basic window design. Mat cutting is fully computerized and customized for each photograph. (see diagram)
To ensure fine art quality, the artwork should never be adhered directly to the backboard nor should it be permanently mounted flat to the board. The photograph needs to float freely. (see diagram) NOTE* exceptions apply with plexy/dibond framing processes. (see below)
Black frames and white frames.
These mouldings are painted wood. Each moulding is custom made to your individual specifications. All of their mouldings are manufactured to high quality standards using the best quality products.
An archival matboard, sized proportionately to the artwork, is included with all black or white frames.
This framing option is quite modern and very clean looking. They begin with a glossy photographic print to ensure it adheres to the plexy glass with no bubbling. The print is sandwiched between a clear piece of plexy glass on the front side and a thin piece of aluminum dibond on the back side. There is a wood box frame and hooks adhered to the back of the dibond for hanging purposes. NOTE* this process is permanent. The print is forever attached to the plexy and dibond. It’s quite stunning!
