Art is meant to be displayed, but improper display materials can cause more problems than you might think. If you have a treasured photo or painting that you want to protect, archival framing is the answer.

What Is Archival Framing?
Other art framing companies, including well-known chains and craft stores, use standard wood paper to mat and frame artwork. Unfortunately, mats made with wood-pulp paper can leach acid into the artwork, deteriorating the art and causing discoloration. Picasso Gallery uses only cotton rag mats to ensure that no acid leaches into your artwork. That’s what we mean when we say we offer archival framing.
