Moulding is the term used to describe the outer frame on a picture frame. Mouldings come in a variety of materials such as Veneer, Timber, Synthetic and Aluminium. Corporate Art has access to over 500+ types of moulding in black, white, oak, silver, gold and many more colours and stains. If you require a quote please contact the framing department.
Glazing is the common term used to describe the material which shields the artworks. Eg. Glass, Acrylic, Museum Glass or Conservation Glass.
Artworks that require protective glazing are those rendered on paper or fabrics (including photographs), which contain pigments and dyes that absorb UV and are susceptible to discolouration.
In the picture framing industry, a matboard is a thin, flat piece of white or colour card material included within a picture frame, which serves as additional decoration and to perform several other, more practical functions, such as separating the art from the glass. Putting mats in a frame is called matting.
The artwork is the object you wish to frame it can be a gold medal won at your local sporting event or a photograph from the dream wedding which you wish to capture for many more years to come. Corporate Art can frame most objects, artwork, prints and sporting memorabilia.
The backing is how you wish to preserve the framed artwork. Corporate Art has a number of varieties which can be used for cost-effective solutions right through to conservation and museum grade qualities.
