Works on Paper

Traditionally, classic wood and glass framing is the go-to choice. This involves mounting the artwork on foam board, adding matting or protective layers, and selecting either glass or acrylic to shield the piece. It’s a timeless method that ensures both preservation and presentation.

Alternatively, consider a shadow box frame for your works on paper. These frames offer a unique depth between the frame and the artwork, creating an intriguing play of shadows within the frame itself. Ideal for pieces seeking a standout display, shadow box frames also provide greater flexibility in mounting options. Usually, for this kind of frame glass is typically preferred over acrylic for its superior clarity, especially in showcasing artworks with depth since acrylic tends to opaque the vibrancy of the artworks as this recedes in the background.
