Our posters are made from 100% archival materials.
The four frame components listed below show how
each part contributes to a museum grade environment
for your poster. Each frame part is chemically stable and
cannot cause harm to your poster.
Made from polystyrene which is chemically inert meaning that it is not reactive to other materials. BENEFIT: Will cause no harm to the poster.
Made from UV blocking acrylic. Museum-grade acrylic is more transparent, lighter weight and more impact resistant than glass frame fronts. It also resists chemical attack. It is not affected by heat, cold or humidity. BENEFIT: Acrylic does not cause damage to the framed poster and also prevents the poster from fading over time. Note: It is still best practice not have printed matter in direct sunlight.
Made from Library of Congress approved polyester. Polyester is chemically stable, crystal clear and will never yellow. Place the spacer between the poster and the acrylic frame front. This placement prevents the poster from adhering to the acrylic if condensation occurs. BENEFIT: Poster cannot stick to the frame front.
Made from blue-gray archival corrugated. This material is acid-free, lignin-free and buffered. BENEFIT: The backing board potentially absorbs acids in the poster and blocks migrating acids. The lignin has been removed from the board so it cannot cause harm to the poster.
