Do you need conservation picture framing?

How important is the item you want framing? Is it something that you would like to protect because it’s valuable or sentimentally important?


The materials used by most picture framers are not designed to protect for long. After a few years the frame’s materials will actually start to damage the framed item, causing the image to fade and the paper or material to become discoloured and brittle. So, if your item is important to you, you need conservation framing.


Our conservation picture framing will protect your item for decades. We use fully reversible techniques, naturally pH neutral materials and glazing that eliminates 99% of the UV light that causes fading. These are the same Fine Art Trade Guild approved techniques and materials we have used for national museums and galleries, renowned artists and private art collectors from all over the world.


With Handmade Framing, not only will your valuable and loved items look magnificent, they can also be preserved and protected for decades. For beautiful framing that preserves and protects the items you love, contact Handmade Framing and Gallery today.
