archival framing – protecting your art
We offer fully archival framing. This involves using appropriate materials and techniques to protect and conserve your art work for the longest possible time. Conservation quality materials and methods used in this workshop include the use of acid-free mount boards and backing to discourage the discolouration or oxidisation of papers, and foxing. Moisture resistant and PH neutral backing materials are used to discourage the penetration of moisture which can lead to mould growth. All means of attaching the artwork are acid free and reversible where possible. When required, ultra-violet filtering glazing materials are used to minimise the damaging effects of sunlight.
where to find us
The workshop is located at 53 Victoria Rd, Rozelle, next door to Australian Natural Timber Framing.
Prices vary widely according to size and type of frame and mounting. Because of differences in the specific requirements of the artwork or object, hand-finished, painted, gilded or more complicated framing must be priced in the workshop. Quotes given over the phone are a general guide – for a firm costing it is best to bring the art work in.
