What is conservation framing? Conservation framing methods are the same processes used by museums worldwide to preserve and protect works of great value. Whether you’re framing an expensive, original piece by a revered artist or something of less monetary value that happens to mean the world to you, the team at The Great Frame Up is trained in current conservation methods. We can help you maintain the quality, appearance and value of your treasured piece for generations to come.
At The Great Frame Up, we are proud to present you with the highest quality materials by the world’s leading providers of museum-quality frames, mats, and glass. Available in a variety of textures and colors, we offer mats made from 100% cotton fibers as well as others containing a MicroChamber® technology to trap airborne pollutants. We also offer a variety of glass and acrylic to protect your artwork by blocking up to 99% of the UV light rays that can cause your artwork to fade and deteriorate over time. In addition, TruVue Museum Glass© provides the lowest level of light reflection possible, providing you with optimal clarity, allowing you to see your art the way it was meant to be.
We know how much time and care go into crafting needlework. Whether it’s your first attempt at needlepoint or your grandmother’s heirloom sampler, the expert framers at The Great Frame Up are trained in the latest conservation methods to mount and frame your needlework.
The Great Frame Up will not use any mounting method which involves adhesives or other materials that could harm your artwork. Our methods of pinning and lacing are endorsed by the Professional Picture Framers’ Association as safe, non-invasive, and completely reversible.
