We select every element of our framed giclèe prints for the highest archival quality.
First you will select among our five fine art papers. All are naturally acid free and contain no artificial brighteners. Their textures range from very smooth to heavily textured in order listed. You can read more about the papers we offer in our FAQ section.
We make our window mats from natural white Crescent RagMat Museum mat board. These archival mat boards are 100% cotton that has not been treated with chlorine bleach and contains no artificial brighteners.You can choose from two styles of window mat. In the standard mat style the window mat overlaps the image by 1/8 inch. You can also choose to leave 1/2 inch of space between the image and the window mat. Many artists choose to title and sign the print in this space.
We will mount your print to Crescent Acid-Free Fome-Cor® with hinges of removable acid-free tape along the top. And we will also hinge the window mat to the backing board with Neschen Filmoplast P90 tape–an archival and removable acid-free tape. We use high quality natural wood Roma Mouldings imported from Italy, and standard non-glare acrylic glazing.
