(Okay, so there's really 18...)

Did you know...

One of the most popular items to be framed is the antique?  Family photos might immediately come to mind as the perfect items to be enhanced and protected by a well chosen frame, but think also of the antique opal ring your grandmother left, or a great-grandfather's watch.  A beaded purse with a particularly delicate style that was handed down but never gets to see the town might be combined with a photo of the relative who took it with her on her evenings out.  The objects you treasure but do not take out because of their rare or delicate condition can be enjoyed while they are preserved with conservation quality materials that will prolong their life.

As with a piece of art, an heirloom needs to be attached with non-permanent, reversible materials in an acid-free backing where the glass can provide a barrier from UV light and ordinary accumulation of debris.  Your custom picture framer can suggest the materials needed to preserve your piece or refer you to a conservator for items that have already experienced some wear.
