The right frame means a lot

Use a frame that fits stylistically and in color means a lot to the overall appearance.

Mounting / framing of photographs can be done in several ways, for example

  • Framing with or without glasses
  • Passepartout
  • Disc Cut
  • Bars on the canvas is

Then they can be framed in different ways. I assemble the traditional manner and has examples of several variants. The frames can be ordered in the exact format so they are perfect for your printing. The frames are from Nielsen and are used by many galleries and museums.

Framing with or without glasses

The traditional and safe way. Just make sure to use cardboard or foam board that is approved archives, only acid-free does not guarantee. I use 2,8 mm thick museum board. Glass I think spoils the appearance of using nice paper of high quality. In such cases, use anti-glare museum glass that also provides UV protection. Unfortunately, it is expensive.

Passepartout

The traditional and safe way to mount. Just make sure to use cardboard or foam board that is approved archives, only acid-free does not guarantee. Of course, tape and everything else to be approved. Passepartout can also be used as an adjunct in common framing.

Slice or Cut foambord

It has become very popular because it is simple and neat. NOTE most cutting boards and foam board is not even acid-free. Do you then Photo Mount spray, you are guaranteed trouble, eventually. Nor have I found any adhesive that ensures longevity. Moreover, you can never remove without destroying the photograph.

NOTE: I have to find someone who assembles with any age guarantee in this way.

Stretcher

The traditional method of fitting the canvas. Nicely, but a little rooting to get to the true. Then you can expect that it takes almost 10 cm on each side for mounting on stretcher bars are for example 18 thick.
