Glazing options for frames

Discover our range of glazed mounting options and determine what is best for your artwork. 

Artwork on paper ideally need to be mounted clearly away from the glass of the frame to allow air movement and circulation. If the print is not held with a window or book-mount, then fillets in the rebate should be used to hold it away from glazing.

At theprintspace we offer a range of glazing options to suit different budgets and each has optical properties to enhance or preserve the artwork.

Descriptions and optical properties are listed below:

 

Anti-reflective

This glass is produced with a multi-layered coating including coatings to reduced glare / reflection for optimal colour transmission and image clarity and coatings containing UV protection.
