Conservation and preservation framing standards have become the norm rather than the exception. To fully service the conservation of artworks, we work closely with specialists in the fields of textile, paper and painting conservators in addition to our framing conservation practices. Our conservation framing practice includes the use of certified conservation material such as hinging with mulberry paper and wheat starch paste, the use of museum matt boards and backing, various glass and plexiglass options and other acid-free applications materials and glues.
At DLB we feel that the onus is on us to care for and consider the preservation of works that we frame. In this way, we can be sure that the integrity of the work and the memory of the artist, is at least somewhat preserved as the works pass through our doors in another iteration of their framed life.
