Why Custom Framing for Historical Documents? Historical documents hold immense value, both in terms of their historical significance and their sentimental worth. Whether it's a handwritten letter from a famous figure, a vintage map, or an important legal document, these artifacts deserve to be preserved and showcased in the best possible way. Custom framing offers several benefits for historical documents: 1. Protection: Custom framing provides a protective barrier against dust, moisture, and UV rays, which can cause fading, discoloration, and deterioration of the document. Our conservation quality materials and techniques ensure that your historical documents are safeguarded from these damaging elements. 2. Preservation: Historical documents are often fragile and delicate. Custom framing allows for proper handling and mounting, ensuring that the document is supported and protected from any potential damage. We use acid-free mats, UV-protective glass, and archival mounting techniques to preserve the integrity of the document. 3. Display: Custom framing allows you to showcase your historical documents in a way that enhances their beauty and significance. Our expert framers work closely with you to choose the perfect frame, mat, and mounting options that complement the document and its historical context.

Frame for Longevity: Consider the long-term preservation of the document when choosing the frame. Select a frame that not only enhances the document's appearance but also provides structural support and protection. 4.
