The way your portrait is framed is important to make it last for years of enjoyment. To keep it from deteriorating over time, your portrait will come matted with acid-free artboard, as well as acid-free backing.
Framing is usually not included in the cost of a commissioned portrait. If you would like to have your portrait completed with a frame, additional charges will be added. You will be kept up to date throughout the portrait process, and several options will be made available as to your choice of frame style and color.
If you will be framing your portrait on your own, please consider selecting a conservation glass. Conservation glass has been proven to protect and maintain art as close to its original condition as possible.
