Inframe Gallery offer Conservation framing for your valuable or precious items.
We stock Tru Vue Conservation clear and Tru vue Museum Glass, both have a 99% UV protection rating, the museum glass is also anti-reflective.
Acid free mount board is used as standard, but if you item is particularly valuable or you don't want it to deteriorate we stock Art care Archival mount board which removes harmful air pollutants.
The methods used in attaching your artwork will not damage it, several different methods are used depending on the item. On standard items we use acid free hinging tape (we NEVER use masking tape).
Other methods include platform mounting, in which no tape is used, instead the art work is held in place with a card template.
We operate a Valiani CMC mount cutter, this means we can cut any design out of mount board to further personalise your picture or item .
Things we can cut out and do on our mount cutter include:
We have over 40 acid free mount boards for you to choose from in various colours and shades.
We now also stock Artcare Archival mount boards from Nielsen Bainbridge,available in 135 colours.
What is Artcare?
Unlike any other boards, Artcare can actively protect framed items. It is now known that the deterioration of paper and film is caused by the common air pollutants in our atmosphere, often at their most destructive inside buildings rather than outside. Artcare's unique patented molecular traps, built into its paper structure, are proven to trap these pollutant gases and prevent them from attacking the framed piece - significantly extending the life of framed items.
Normal glass is used as standard, but if you require any specialist glass the options available are (hover over for more info):
Extra large sheets of glass and acrylic are also available for large items that don't fit within the normal sheet size.
We specialise in framing military medals and other medals. The methods that we use to frame them will not damage them in anyway. We like to recommend bringing in a photograph of the person the medals belong to so we can incorporate it in the frame as well as any other items which you feel are relevant (cap badges, id tags).
You can bring you cross stitch or tapestry to us for framing if it is already stretched, or we can stretch it for you. We use several methods for stretching depending on your requirements, as standard we lace your cross stitch or tapestry.
Please note we DO NOT wash or iron your cross stitch/tapestry, to avoid damage.
We can frame any type of clothing, whether its a football shirt, rugby shirt, shoes, shorts and gloves to name a few. The methods we use for framing clothing doesn't damage the item, we don't use glue or any other sticky substance.
