How to choose a frame backing

When it comes to choosing a backing for your frame, we offer three main options; MDF, non-adhesive foam core and adhesive foam core.

MDF backing is our basic choice, this is a sturdy option but may cause damage over the years to your image due to the acid levels present. Our foam core options are best suited to treasured photographs or works of art with value that you may want to preserve for longer as these are acid-free options.

We offer either adhesive or non-adhesive foam core backings. An adhesive backing will allow you to stick your art or photograph on to the backing which allows for greater stability. However, please bear in mind how long you may want the image framed for. Removing the image from adhesive foam core backings may do damage to it. A non-adhesive backing means simply placing the print inside the frame allowing for easier removal in the future.
