Many people might think glass is glass? But it isn't, glass is important and can affect the final look of your framed item. Some glass is less reflective than others, some more clear, we can go through all this with you in our workshop.
To simplify, Glass types is easier explained as:
Conservation Clear: this type of glass offers protection to your artwork by blocking out 99% of UV rays.
Reflection Control: offers UV protection and reduces the glare from direct sunlight.
Museum Glass: this type of glass is the highest quality of glass, suitable for valuable artwork.
Mountboard options include a wide selection of colours, sizes, shapes and types. For example if you have an item that is old and flimsy and needs preserving using museum standard mountboard will help preserve it.
Box frames are used for large bulky options. Box frames often have a support that makes the item stay in place without with no visible attachment. So it gives the appearance of displaying perfectly in its place and can be coupled with very clear non reflective glass to give the perfect display.
Float mounting means your artwork, print, photograph or painting is suspended inside the picture frame. Float mounted items raw edges are visible as compared to standard mounting, which means the
mount covers the edges.So when you look at it from any angle, you cannot see anything which fixes it in position, it provides an interesting effect which shows the whole of the artwork.
Most items can be float mounted and is often used for Certificates and other important documents along with Watercolour paintings which look great. The effect of making the item looking like its floating within the frame is a lovely effect for any artwork or print that you have.
