Custom framing for your art prints.  
 
If you want your art prints to look the best they possibly can then consider custom framing your art. Pre-made frames are perfect for quick and affordable picture framing, but custom or bespoke framing will make your prints last longer and enhance the aesthetic quality of the work. The frame is just as important as the art itself and can make it really come to life. 

Endemicworld frames are lovingly hand-crafted in New Zealand. Black and white frames have a smooth matte finish using Italian wooden mouldings. Raw oak frames are made using oak imported from Australia, and are sanded with a natural finish displaying original wood grains.

Matted
The most traditional framing method is matting a print. Beneficial and simple, the mat is a thicker piece of cut board which is placed over the print to create a 'white space' between the print and the frame. The mat gives a print space away from the glass which protects the paper from mould and keeps it flat. As well as archival benefits, matting your art increases overall size and enhances the presence of a piece on the wall. Almost any frame can be used with a mat making it a versatile option.



Floated

Floating allows each feature of the artwork to stand out, including the edges of the paper. This is perfect for works with deckled or torn edges and intricate details, as it presents the work in a simplistic, stylish setting with minimal interference to the artwork. A natural border of about 50mm is visible, with a background colour mat colour selected to compliment the paper. Box frames are most commonly used to create enough space to float the paper whilst keeping it separate from the glass.



Set Back

Setting a print back from the glass protects the art without the need for a mat. Generally no mat is shown, the print being flush with the edge of the frame. Box frames are mainly used to set a print back as they allow for space between the backing board and glass. While the print is usually set back the whole depth of the frame, it is possible to set back a portion of this. Photographic and strong graphic works suit a set back frame particularly well.



Conservation

Conservation matting and framing options are the only way to make sure your art lasts as long as possible. Conservation options include UV protecting glass, archival backing board, mats and glues. When purchasing original and limited edition art works, conservation framing is recommended in order to extend the life and value of the art.
