Conservation Mounting

• Acid-Free framing tape. Your artwork can be mounted onto an Acid-Free foam board or
mat. Only Acid-Free tape is used in this process.
• Corner framing "pockets" & "Art Saver" strips.
• Museum Conservation Hinging - the ultimate protection.
• Stretching, Lacing and Sewing Fabric : These are other archival mounting techniques
that are preferably used for items such as flags or jerseys. They are stretched and
attached to an Acid-Free mat or foam board with needles. This allows a precise
placement of your item and is completely reversible.
