Tru Vue For Your Home
From the poster you picked up at an art fair, to a lithograph you saw in an antique shop, to the photos of your family you want to display, there are lots of reasons why you want to show off the art and artifacts that are important in your life, perfectly. Some framed pieces add to the decoration in a room, some just have sentimental value, but all need one thing: to be preserved and to look their best on the walls of your home. That’s why Tru Vue has the perfect framing glass or acrylic for what you value most. Whether it’s to reduce reflection because of an adjacent window, or to protect a print from the harmful rays of the sun, the right Tru Vue glazing product is available at many local professional framers. Just ask them!

Why should I bring my art or precious memories to a professional framer?
When you want to frame a piece of art, a photograph or a keepsake, you have a number of options. Ready-made photo frames and standard poster-sized frames are available at many stores. Or you could visit one of the many "do-it-yourself" framing centers where, with the help of employees, you can cut your own mat and build your own frame. With all these options available, why are you in a custom frame shop?
Professional design of your framing package.
There’s a great deal more to beautiful custom framing than meets the eye. Did you know, for example, that the width of the mat border should never match the width of the frame? (This tends to draw the eye away from the art that it surrounds.) Or that a poorly placed decorative element, such as a French line, can detract from the beauty of the finished package? Your custom framer knows these things. That’s why, in addition to a keenly developed artistic sense, your custom framer can apply the standards that govern good framing design to produce a beautiful, well-balanced framing presentation that enhances the work of art without overpowering it.
Advanced protection for your artwork.
A professional picture framer has the skills and materials necessary to preserve and protect your treasured art and memories as close as possible to their original condition. Acid- and lignin-free mat and mount boards contain no impurities, which can damage the art they surround. Conservation Grade 99% UV protection glazing such as Tru Vue® Museum Glass® protect framed pieces from the irreversible damage caused by light exposure.
Did you know?
All art, photographs, prints and personal keepsakes need to be glazed with at least 97% UV protection to prevent irreversible damage.*
