Q: What are the different types of glass available?

  • Regular Glass: High quality clear glass is 2.5 mm, washed and paper interleaved. Best used for artwork made of paper, such as posters and prints.
  • Non-Glare: Reduces glare and reflections in rooms with high velocity of light.
  • Conservation Glass: Protects artwork by absorbing 97% of harmful UV light, which can cause fading and other damage.

Q: What is drymounting and laminating?

  • Drymounting: Is a permanent process using a heat press to bond a piece of artwork to a board preventing buckling and rippling in the paper. Recommended for bonding photographic paper and printed materials.
  • Laminating: Is a clear film protecting and enhancing photographic prints and graphics. Laminating can be a substitution for glass, easy to clean and maintain.

Q: When should a mat be used?

  • To frame all paper art and documents.
  • To serve as a spacer, separating the glass from the item being framed.
  • To increase the size of what you are framing.
  • To combine more than one item into a single frame.
  • To provide a background to set or mount something on.
