What a loaded Question! You say really........?
Yes, really. There are several different types of glass used in the Custom Picture Framing World of Art.
Conservation Clear Glass:This picture framing glass offers the highest level of UV protection available in the industry. Conservation Clear glass effectively blocks up to 99% of UV light rays to protect against fading and help keep framed pieces brighter, longer. I am a advocate of Conservation Clear Glass especially for Limited Editions, Original Photographs, Signed Jerseys and Original Art pieces.
Conservation Reflection Control Glass: This picture framing glass enhances the beauty of artwork with a matte-like finish. Conservation Reflection Control Glass blocks up to 99% of UV light rays. This glass is for Artwork for Limited Editions, Original Photographs and Original Art Pieces.
Museum Glass: This anti-reflection picture framing glass is the BEST glazing option available for art. It has a nearly invisible finish and effectively blocks up to 99% of harmful outdoor UV light rays so framed pieces remain clearer and brighter for longer. This glass is great for pieces of Original Artwork or Heirlooms you would like to keep protected for many years to come.
Premium Clear: glass is the highest quality regular framing glass available. This picture framing glass effectively blocks up to 45% of UV light rays to protect against fading. This glass is great for pieces like certificates, posters and photographs.
Reflection Control: This glass enhances the beauty of artwork with etched matte-like finish that scatters light to minimize unwanted glare. This picture framing glass effectively blocks up to 45% of UV light rays. This glass is great for pieces like certificates, posters and photographs.
I bet you did not think there were ALL These Choices!
So next time you come to see Beautiful Art Picture Framing or your favorite Picture Framer you will know the difference between the Glazing Options and will be able to make an educationl choice for your Artwork!
