Framing package consists of an aluminum metal frame, UV-protective glazing, and archival matboard package.
Frames used are Nielsen Profile 117 extruded aluminum frame. Available colors are black, white, and "Dusk" (dark gray).
Glazing provided is UV filtering acrylic manufactured by Acrylite. This material blocks 98% of UV radiation, with a transmission rating (clarity) of 92%. Its high strength and light weight make it a great option for artwork that needs to be shipped, without compromising on optical quality. ArtGlass 99 UV glass glazing manufactured by GroGlass is available upon request.
Prints are matted with a bevel-cut "Vivid White" mat and mounted to gray or black backing mat with t-hinges. Mats used are manufactured by Nielsen and Crescent. These matboards are made from alpha-cellulose wood pulp fibers that have been chemically treated to eliminate the acids and lignins that can degrade artwork (archival, alkaline pH). Lineco gum adhesive paper or linen tape is used to hinge mats and mount print (archival, reversible with water, pH neutral).
