 Common Framing Terms

  • Moulding

    The frame moulding is the outside finished material that surrounds the item. There are thousands of frame moulding styles in a variety of stains, finishes, and materials and we offer the largest selection in the area.

  • Matting

    Matting is the window-cut material placed around an image and within the frame. It provides a spacer allowing the work to expand and contract with changes in humidity and temperature. Matte can be cut to any shape, comes in many colors, and is available in an archival variety.

  • Glazing

    The transparent material covering the artwork the serves as a means of protection. Glazing comes in many variations such as a light weight acrylic, anti-reflective glass, non-glare glass, and conservation glass that is specially formulated to help filter the damaging effects of UV light.

  • Mounting

    Mounting refers to how your item is attached to the frame. Artwork is typically attached to a board. Dry mounting, wet mounting and spray mounting are ways to prevent the artwork from bubbling or waving in the frame. Artwork of value is not generally mounted since it can greatly affect any resale value..

  • Preservation Framing

    This form of framing, also known as conservation or museum quality, takes extra precautions by using special materials to better protect your item. These materials and techniques act as a shield from the damaging effects of sunlight and pollutants that can yellow or fade art.

 

 

Kent Studios has been a favorite place for art and custom framing enthusiasts since 1953.
