Top Three Custom Framing Tips

1. Tell your custom framer where your object will be displayed.

  • Light, humidity and temperature can all affect your artwork.
  • For a photo hung near a window, for instance, it is worth installing glass with the highest UV protection even though the cost is a bit higher.

2. Ask whether your artwork, photo or other property will stay on the premises while the frame is made.

  • Some framers “farm out” work to subcontractors.
  • ABC Photo does all work in-house.

3. Make sure your framer uses archival materials.

  • Matboards and backboards should be “acid-free,” “pH neutral” or “archival” so your artwork is protected from yellowing, fading and other damage.
