Why choose Conservation Level Framing?

Here at Ironbridge Fine Arts and Framing we have great pride in the quality of our work, and feel that if it’s worth framing it’s worth protecting ,therefore Conservation Level Framing is our recommended standard of framing.

With conservation level framing, anything framed can be returned to its former state at any time for up to 20 years, assuming the artwork is in a stable condition. Any remedial repair or restoration work should be made prior to framing.
