Framing your print

October 28, 2012

I wanted to write something about how I have framed the print, since I have had a few emails from buyers asking about this. Of course, you can frame it however you think best – but this is the way I like it, which is also the way we offer it for sale.

I chose a mount (matt board, in US parlance) which is exactly the same colour as the Zerkall paper we printed the poster on, it's also very deep which not only keeps the print well away from the glass / acrylic (which is important) but also just looks great.

There is about half an inch between the printed border of the poster and the opening in the mount and then about 1.25" between the mount and the black, wooden frame.

The frame itself has a deep bezel that draws the eye into the poster. All in all, I think it looks terrific.

All materials are archival quality (i.e. acid-free) and the frame is sealed at the back so no dust can get in. We attach the certificate of authenticity to the rear in a plastic pouch and add D-ring attachments, a hanging cord and some felt spacers at the bottom.
