Tapes specifically designed for mat and framing industry
There are a lot of different tapes in the picture framing industry. They all deal with attaching a print to a mat or back and attaching a mat to a back. Below are the most popular.
Framer's Tape: Our biggest selling tape. Comes in white and clear. It has an archival grade adhesive that has no harmful plasticizers on a polyurethane carrier. Framer's Tape II is used to hinge prints to backings or mats and hinge mats to backs. It is thinner than traditional archival linen tapes and stronger than traditional paper hinging tape. The strength is both a positive and can be a negative. Paper hinging tape is a traditional archival method of attaching prints to mats or backs. It use is based on the theory that if the picture is jarred, falls off the wall, the hinging tape will tear before the print paper does, thus protecting the print. However, on the other hand, paper hinging tape is questionable for larger or heavier prints. Manufacturer claims Framer's Tape can be 'removed with minimal heat". Although true, I have found that it can be difficult depending on the type of paper used with the print. Roll is 1" wide by 180 feet long.
Acid Free, Self Adhesive Linen Tape: Same as above but with a self-adhesive tape for those who do not want to dampen gummed tape to apply it. The adhesive is neutral pH acrylic adhesive. Rolls are 1 1/4 inch wide by either 33 feet or 150 feet.
Mounting Corners & Strips
Mounting Corners and Mounting Strips
Mylar and Polyprolene Ultra Clear Mounting Corners. Fast and easy. Mylar is the clearest plastic and is typically the first choice of museums. Polypropolene, although not as clear is inert, acid-free, safe and widely used for mounting. The image can be removed easily since there is no tape. Both are used to mount light to moderate weight prints. Adhesive never comes in contact with the image. The image can be removed easily since there is no tape. There are two designs of corners: Standard and Fullview. The standard forms a triangle and must be mounted far enough from mat window to be covered completely by the mat. Fullview minimizes the border required to hide the corner.
Mylar Mounting Strips are additional mounting aids when you need extra support between the corners of the prints. Mylar polyester is the top choicer of museums. They are 4 inches long and are attached to a 2 ply mat with a Self Adhesive back. Simply position the artwork and adhere the strips to the mount board. No adhesive touches the art.
Self-stick easels are attractive, sturdy, and easy to use
Application is fast and easy. Simply peel and stick. Attach easel to your backing and you have an instantaneous easel back. Can be applied horizontally or vertically. 7 inch and larger come with "double wing" design for more stability. White color. Come in packages of 25.
