preservation matting and hinging

We use 100% cotton rag museum boards for all of our matting at DDG Frameshop.  Available in 4ply and 8ply, our matting utilizes state of the art CNC mat cutting technology.  All artwork is adhered into place using either rice paper hinges and wheat paste, BEVA, or lignen-free corners.  Matting only services available for galleries and collectors. 

 

uv protected glazings

Light can be a major source of damage to artwork.  DDG Frameshop offers all UV protected glazings, including Optium acrylics and Art Glass, providing a minimum 93% UV protection.  Even when not exposed to direct sunlight,  harmful light can still be making its way to your artwork. Using a UV protected glazing is always a smart choice.
