Mylar Encapsulation for Paper


Important documents are never hinged with tape but supported with mylar plastic sheeting. Using mylar to seal the document gives the work a completely sealed and stable environment while displaying the work in a non distracting manner.

Decorative mating rests at the top of the design keeping the paper away from the frame edges where acids and moister may creep through the wood over years. Mating is important for the artworks breath as it isolates the art and gives the viewer’s eye a space to move into the work. Going with textured mating gives the frame design rich color that can’t be achieved with paper mating.
