Does any one have any good links or information I can use to mount and frame prints in a way that will preserve their maximum resale value over time?

Thanks.

I think Rolando still has a link to Light Impressions at the top of the forum. They sell all the stuff you need. Not that I wouldn't shop around, mind you -- but the site shows you all the stuff.

The big word in museum-style mounting is archival. Everything you use for mounting should be acid-free. I use acid-free matboard, backerboard and archival tape. I cut the mat and backer to size, cut the mat, then make a piano hinge on the top of the mat with the tape. I then position the print under the mat, and secure it with archival tape in the corners. No one has ever complained -- either client or gallery about the way I mount stuff. It's the way I was taught at the MFA's school.

Best of luck. I really enjoy the construction process -- just don't wait until the night before the show. It ALWAYS takes longer than you think -- and I've mounted a number of shows over the years.

Hey David, I do. My son has worked in a higher end Art-Framing Gallery for about 5 years framing. Any of your better framers use acid free papers and I personally use non glare glass. Theres several different types of this type glass and can get pricey. Call around your local area to Art framers to get pricing and whats available. tommymc

Is there a way to test to ensure they are actually acid free? How can I be sure that what a shop says is what they do?
