If you think 2D items are the only frameable things, you are in for a surprise! We most definitely can frame 3D items like Baseball Bat, Ceramic Tiles, Figurines and even Boxing Gloves!
Framing such items requires Shadow Box Framing and Acrylic Box Framing.
The difference between both styles is – for Shadow Box Framing, a frame has to be around the item. However, the frame has to either have depth to contain the height of the item or we can build additional structure at the back of the frame for extra room for the item. The glazing will be raised up so it will not be in direct contact with the item, this gives the “box-effect” as the item will look as if its sunken into the frame.
Conservation framing is the use of techniques and materials in the framing process to protect, minimize, or stop the degrading effects of the environmental influences, i.e. sunlight, heat, humidity, and gravity, that constantly attack your framed piece.
Acidic materials create big problems for works of arts, causing foxing and deterioration. Therefore, we use 100% cotton matboards that are acid free, pH-buffered, pH-neutral, chlorine free and contain no lignin for maximize protection of your artwork.
To work against the harm caused by UV rays, we carry a range of glazing options with UV protection that protects your artworks against fading of colors. Furthermore, these glazing are anti-reflective for better visibility on your artwork.
Below are the glazing options for your selection:
