Conservation Framing
At Germotte Photo & Framing Studio we use the most up-to-date archival preservation methods and materials for the safety of your artwork.
We stay up to date with the technology, and we constantly sharpen our skills so that we can offer you the best possible protection for your
precious art.
In consultation with our clients, we use preservation methods and materials appropriate for each project. Inside each framing package is a
unique preservation support system. We include the use of different preservation materials to suit each piece of art. Materials may include the
following:
• Acid-free matting
• Acrylic spacers
• Reversible hinging tapes and papers
• Conservation corner mounts & strips
• Barrier tapes, rabbet tapes, and fillet tapes
• Ultraviolet protecting glass or Plexiglas™
• Museum Glass or Museum Plexiglas™
• Acid-free backing, Coroplast and barrier papers
Matting

The motive of matting is visual and protective. Mats keep the glass from coming into contact with the artwork. This provides an air space to
prevent damage due to condensation behind the glass. For other design options, we use liners, mat walls and acrylic spacers to separate
artwork from glass and acrylic.
At GPFS we use only conservation-quality acid-free and lignin free mat boards to protect your precious art. These mats are available in solid
core rag board (100% cotton) or with coloured and textured surfaces over acid-free centers. Bainbridge has a unique technological advantage
with their ARTCARE line of mats. Embedded in their mat boards and acid-free foam core boards are microchambers, which trap impurities
and protect art from the effects of pollution, paper degradation and the by-products of the art´s own ageing.
Mounting and Hinging
Fine art must be secured in a way that will accommodate changes in the art itself. Most of the time, we hinge artwork from the top so that the
art will not buckle as it expands and contracts. In all cases, we do our best for invisible and reversible methods, and we discuss all the options
with our clients.
We also mount economical posters to Foam-Core board using a press. The main benefit of this mounting treatment is to prevent the waving of
the poster behind the glass.
Glazing Options
Ultraviolet light is present in nearly all forms of light, including sunlight, incandescent light, fluorescent light, and halogen light. UV light
exposure causes artwork to fade, yellow, and become fragile. Although UV protective products will slow such deterioration, it is still important
to hang valuable art away from direct sources of ultraviolet light.
At Germotte Photo & Framing Studio we carry a variety of U.V. protective glass and acrylic in both clear and non-glare options. For budget
picture framing needs, we also feature equivalent products without UV protection.

Blocking capabilities and surpass the 97% UV standard.*

Institute, guidelines from the International for Standardization, ISO 18902, recommend using glazing that blocks at least 97% of UV energy.

Acrylic.® These Conservation Grade UV products offer up to 99% UV protection from the Irreversible damage caused by light exposure while

Museum Glass
Museum Glass is our finest grade premium glass. Is a truly an extraordinary product. It provides the same UV blocking protection of
Conservation Clear and Conservation Reflection Control in that it blocks more than 98% of the ultraviolet rays. In addition, Museum Glass has
a very special anti-reflective surface far superior to a typical non-glare glass. A special coating is used in extremely thin layers to break up the
incoming light rays so that they don't bounce back off the glass, producing a glare. Because the rays don't bounce off, the picture is actually
more illuminated than with clear glass. Museum Glass transmits more than 97% of light to the artwork. This improves colour and clarity of the
artwork
