Many customers ask us how they should mount their most valuable art work so that it doesn’t get damaged. Any adhesive method is going to be permanent so it’s not suitable for things like stamps, novelty items or other valuable art work.
We recently created a custom matboard and frame for Barry which he used to frame a rare stamp collection. He used photo cornersto mount the stamps, so no adhesive ever touches the stamps. You can see the custom mat design and the finished product below.
We made the opening about 1/2″ larger than the stamps, this is called a float. We then provided a mounting board where Barry placed the photo corners and the stamps. The white bevel of the top layer provides a nice border.
Here is a close up of one of the photo corners.
This is the best way to frame and mount your valuable art work and it’s dead easy!
