Framing For History
All of our wood frames are made of solid wood.
Our metal frames are professional-grade anodized aluminum, available in a variety of colors.
All of our frames are made in the U.S.A.
If you would like a frame of a certain style, color, or wood, please contact us.
All mat boards, mounting boards and backing boards are either acid-free or museum-grade for long-term protection of the artwork and artifacts. All art and objects are mounted to the backing board using methods that will preserve the quality of the item. In the case of original, flat-paper historical items (letters, cards, etc.), museum-grade clear mounting corners are used to ensure that the historical value of the item is not compromised.
To offer the best protection to the finished piece and allow clear viewing of the art, conservation-grade UV Filtering Acrylic is used in all of our frames. This acrylic has two major benefits when compared to glass. First, it can't break during shipping. If glass breaks, it can damage the art it was meant to protect. Second, the UV Light Protection is actually inthe structure of the acrylic. By comparison, UV filtering glass is coated, meaning the protective coating can wear or scratch off. UV rays are a main cause of fading in artwork. Framing History uses UV Filtering Acrylic that filters out 98% of UV.
Remember, all valuable artwork should be kept away from direct sunlight at all times, no matter what it is protected with.
All of our framed artwork arrives ready to hang. We even include picture hanging hooks for your wall so that you may start enjoying your new art as soon as you unpack it from the shipping box.
As always, please feel free to contact us with feedback. We want you to be satisfied with your purchase!
