Framing and Mounting (Matting) suggestions for Antique Maps & Prints


We do not provide framing or mounting services, but we may be able to recommend a framer depending on your location - please feel free to contact us.

It is generally much cheaper to purchase a standard sized frame and have the mount cut to size for your print or map, rather than to have a frame custom made.

Whether you intend to mount and frame your print or map yourself, or get this done by a professional framing shop, be sure to ask for archive quality, acid-free mounting (matting) board to prevent the risk of damage to the paper of your map or print over a long period of time.

We would recommend using a professional framer, but if you are feeling creative and dextrous, it is quite possible to cut the mount to size yourself, if you have the right equipment.

The use of non-reflective glass can enhance your picture viewing experience considerably.

When framed, try to position your print or map away from direct sunlight and in a location where it will avoid temperature extremes and exposure to high humidity.

If buying your item as a gift you may wish to have a certificate of authenticity glued to the back of the frame. We will provide such a certificate for any maps or prints purchased from us upon request.
