DEFINITION

Archival framing – is the framing process employ only archival framing materials (matboard, backing board, tapes …) and archival framing techniques (hinging, mounting …).

Archivals materials help protect the artwork better, in other words, it prevents yellowing process, color degeneration and acid migration.

In VG-Lab, we use archival materials from LINECO (USA).

The biggest advantage of archival framing is the longevity of the framed package, its aesthetic remains for longer time compared cheaper framing method (The longevity of the frame depends on the chosen framing levels – see below).  

The downside of archival is the initial investment is much higher than regular framing method.

*The term ‘normal conditions’ as used in the Guild’s standards means out of direct sunlight, within the temperature range 10°C – 25°C and relative humidity between 40% and 60%. As we are aware of not many frames can be displayed in such conditions, therefore we recommend our clients to get your frame check-up for every three years (Or in case of any damage to the frame).
