Framing has long been the traditional method of displaying artwork. Our team and partners are experienced in custom framing and the preservation of artwork. Place your work into a decorative frame and behind protective glass. We have many options and combinations.
We only work with premium frame products such as solid wood or metal frames. Our covering options are Tru Vue’s Conservation Clear, Museum, and Conservation Acrylic. We actively source products which are Made in the USA and we are constantly sourcing additional domestically produced products.
All framing requires a free design session at our facility in Downtown Petoskey.
At Petoskey Print Studio we pride ourselves on using industry best practices for conservation matting and mounting. Many frame shops will simply adhere your artwork to a board with a dry-mount press, which we do offer as a service, however that is not always the best method for the art. For any item of value, dry-mounting will devalue that art significantly because it is a permanent process. At our free consultation we will evaluate your project and when appropriate offer conservation mounting. A conservation mount is completely reversible and is commonly used for any unique, signed, or original artwork. All materials used are conservation grade and acid free.
Photography Mounting and Matting
The best way to protect your photography and printed fine art from curling and bending is by mounting to an archival board. Our heat activated adhesive board provides for edge to edge adhesion of your work. Accompany your mounted art with a mat and your work is ready for a frame. You are welcome to use an existing frame, or to inquire about one of our fine frames. All our materials are PH balanced and conservation grade.
Popular sizes can be ordered in ROES.
