Why choose a professional custom picture framer?
Because what's on the inside of the frame is as important as what you see on the outside!
That's why we use conservation materials in all of our frames. From the best UV filtering glass to the acid free mats, we care about using quality materials in our frames. Are you asking, "what are acid free mats"? Well, the answer is they are conservation quality archival mat boards made of alpha cellulose fibers, 100% acid and lignin free throughout. Simply put, these mats do not fade or yellow over time, retaining their original color and preserving your art. Non acid free mats fade and their core turns yellow due to the acidic nature of their make up. This yellowing will cause "burn lines" on your art turning it brown and fading it. You can see an example of this in the photo below. Trust us with what you can't see, we only use the best.
