Photo Frames for your memories:
Photo frames are a great way to preserve and display you family memories. Whether you use ready made picture frames or custom picture framing, by displaying your memories in a photo frame, is a wonderful way to preserve the photos.
At Frames Now we have photo frames and ready made picture frames in 42 standard sizes. All those picture frames can have mat boards (often referred to as the borders inside a picture frame).
Mat boards are a important part of framing as apart from often enhancing the look and feel of the framing, very importantly the matting separates your image from the glass of the picture frame. This is can be critical as over time with moisture and condensation, where the image is directly against the glass of the picture frame, it can cause the image to stick to the glass.
Whilst, a conservator in many cases can remove the image from the glass of your picture frame, it all can be avoided with matting. This is more of a issue when people are buying ready made frames and fitting photos themselves without the advice of a picture framer, who is most likely to advise a customer of the reason for matting. With custom picture framing either matting can be used to create the space between the glass and your photo frame or as picture framers we have a product called Frame Space which is a clear acrylic strip that sits in the rebate of the picture frame that creates this important space. Whilst this cant be seen, it is a great solution if a customer doesn’t want the look of a mat board.
