The best way to revitalize your precious art is to reframe it. FrameSource’s designers can work with you to redesign framed art that is dated or damaged. Changing the mat or frame will give your prized art a new life and, it won’t look like it came out of the 80’s. Many of our customers are very emotional when we present them with their newly reframed art.

If you have framed art and noticed that the bevelled edge has discoloured to a yellow brown, your artwork is at risk of being damaged by acid in the mat. While we cannot reverse the damage, FrameSource can replace it with an acid free mat with the added bonus of freshening up your artwork.
