If you are considering displaying a piece of memorabilia we recommend our conservation framing options, such as with this piece with a large amount of sentimental value. A client brought in a special edition commemorative tea towel with a design of the 1969 Moon landing which needed re-stretching and framing.
With the image on the towel being bold and colourful, we decided framing it up close, without a mount, would be a particularly neat way to frame it. Wide frames could have been used but we found narrow frames also worked well.
The client chose one of our narrow ash frames which had a pinkish-grey paint & wash hand finish. We stretched the towel over an acid-free board and the frame was glazed with Anti-Reflective glass to give excellent clarity and to allow the brilliance of colour to be seen.

These delightful mixed-media felt art collages by Artist Lis Maimaris, were float mounted to display them in their entirety and to provide space for the three dimensional element of the pieces. This kind of framing presents the artwork as both an object and a picture.
The rich colours of the art pieces suit the warm, subdued grey mount board we used. The oak frame was stained an appropriate colour; the visible grain perfectly in keeping with the magical woodland scenes depicted in each artwork.
Mounted to Conservation level, they are easily removed from their mounts and are protected by Conservation mount board and backing. This will provide a good level of protection, so they can be enjoyed over a long time.
