Glass for Framing in a Nutshell

Almost every framing order we take involves a discussion about what type of glass should be  used. The short answer is that if the item is worth framing, it's worth protecting. But what does that mean?

The most common statement we hear when discussing glazing is "I don't need good glass because my art won't be hung in the sun". Yes, direct sun will definitely harm artwork, but there are many other sources of environmental damage to artwork. 

When you come to frame with us, we'll explain all the ways we can help protect your artwork. Until then, here's Glass for Framing in a Nutshell.

Acrylic vs. Glass 
We offer both glass and acrylic for all of your framing needs. Some of our customers prefer one over the other and we believe there is a time and place for both options. Glass is less likely to scratch, but acrylic won’t break as easily. We advise acrylic for pieces in kid’s room, high traffic areas, or to keep the weight down on larger pieces. It is also beneficial when art needs to be shipped or will be carried to different events, etc. Otherwise the new and improved varieties of glass we carry are great options.

Protect Your Investment 
Conservation grade glass helps to protect your art, but it also helps to maintain the integrity of the frame designs you purchase. When you spend just a few dollars more to purchase conservation glass, it helps protect your mat borders from fading. Without the protective properties of conservation glazing, damaging light rays can quickly cause both your art and mats to fade. When this occurs, your entire frame design could lose its visual appeal, not to mention value.

Give Me The Best
The best glazing we offer is either Museum Glass, or Museum Acrylic. Both are anti-reflective and offer 99% ultraviolet light protection. All of the framing grade glazing we offer is supplied by Tru-Vue, the #1 supplier of quality framing glazing.
