  • What framing materials do you use?
    Each of Lead Photography’s prints is framed using Created For Life on the New South Wales Central Coast. All prints are machine-mounted to a Gatorfoam backboard using a double-sided polyester carrier film. This ensures that no human hands come into contact with the print during mounting and helps to mitigate against rippling and/or the “orange-peel” effect: characteristics that become especially apparent over time after photographic prints have been hand-mounted. The matting is a four-ply 100% cotton Alpharag Artcare mat board that has never contained lignin. Lignin is found in trees and this is what over time, can cause damage to photographic prints. Most other matboards that are acid-free have had this product removed or neutralised. It is fade and bleed resistant and provides the highest quality barrier paper and dust-cover. It also contains a technology that actively protects the art-work by trapping and neutralising harmful pollutants that might otherwise lead to fading, discolouration, and damage. Each print is framed using Shinkolite A (Acrylic). This 4.5mm covering provides 98% UV protection and is highly resistant to sunlight, weather and high and low temperatures. It warms to room temperature more quickly than glass, which reduces the moisture and condensation that could otherwise build around the work. It is colourless and is the clearest material available. Unlike glass, it does not shatter or break and does not release gases with the potential to damage the work. Find out more at: createdforlife.
