Specialty Framing Options
Acrylic glazing is the best choice when safety is a concern, or you have a large frame job as it is lightweight, durable, and shatter resistant. We are proud to carry the ultimate acryclic product Tru Vue® Optium Museum Acrylic®. Optium Museum Acrylic provides 99% UV protection to help protect against fading and is anti-reflective (i.e. no distracting reflections). Its anti-static and abrasion resistant features make it perfect for materials such as textiles, charcoals, and pastels, and the best acrylic choice when framing for earthquake prone or high traffic areas.
Anti-Microbial frames are resistant to the growth of the bacteria and fungi that cause stains, odors, and rot. Health care institutions, doctor and dentist offices, assisted living centers, child care facilities, and health clubs often require these products be used within their facility.
Colorplak® is a frameless option that offers a very modern, clean, and simple look. Art can be printed on metal, or applied to wood. Options allow you to customize color and style to fit your space. It is easy to clean and there is no glass which affords a non-reflective view.
Larson-Juhl, one of our biggest moulding suppliers, has earned some of the world’s most respected and recognizable forest-friendly certifications. We are proud to offer a number of environmentally friendly custom frame moulding collections that have earned Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) certifications as well as a vast selection of matboards which boast FSC certification.
With Larson-Juhl manufacturing locations throughout the world, it is important that each facility does its part to keep our world clean and beautiful for future generations. In 1991, Larson-Juhl partnered with American Forests to begin the Global ReLeaf ecosystem restoration project. Since then, Larson-Juhl has planted over 400,000 trees throughout the world!

When glass is not desired or practical, we can laminate your art. This is an excellent option for public spaces, kids’ rooms, humid spaces like bathrooms, or rooms that are not heated on a regular basis. It is light-weight, easy to clean, and non-reflective.
