Acrylic Framing is a great way to achieve a clean, contemporary, minimal look by eliminating the "traditional" picture frame. We offer two types of acrylic framing at our Fastframe stores to suite various sizes and types of artwork and documents!
For larger posters and prints, we recommend Face Mounted Acrylic Framing. This process is non-reversible, so it is NOT appropriate for collectible, limited edition, or original artwork. Acrylic Face Mounting involves adhering the front surface of the subject to 1/4" clear acrylic. The finished piece can then be suspended by using corner stand-off hardware (as pictured), or mounted to a rigid substrate to support a traditional wire hanger.
For smaller and more valuable pieces that require a minimal look, we recommend Acrylic Sandwich Framing. This process is more archival and can be an acceptable way to display many types of prints, documents, thin textiles, and even original artwork. Acrylic sandwich framing involves suspending the subject between two pieces of acrylic, and holding the subject in place with an appropriate method (hinge, corner pocket, etc.). The "sandwich" can then be suspended by using corner stand-off hardware, or fastened together with decorative screw buttons and supported by a keyhole hanger.

NOTE: When considering framing options, remember that only traditional framing is recommended when preservation and archival protection is the first priority. Even the most archival Acrylic Framing options are not comparable to the highest preservation levels possible with traditional framing.
