WE SPECIALIZE IN
ARCHIVAL FRAMING


In archival or conservation picture 
framing, mats have several important 
functions. One of the most important 
functions is that it separates the glass 
from the art or document being 
framed; this is primarily important 
because any condensation that 
develops on the inside of the glass 
can be transferred to the piece if 
they are not separated, resulting 
in water damage, mold or mildew. 
Photos should also be separated 
from the glass because the surface 
of photographs is particularly easy to 
damage, and may even separate from 
its original paper and stick to the 
glass if wet; for this reason, 
any framed photograph of value 
should be framed in such a way that 
the glass does not directly contact the 
photo. Additionally, some types of 
art, such as pastels or chalk pictures, 
can smudge easily and should be 
separated from the glass 
for that reason.
