Frames for prints and posters

Post  ilovefreestufftoo on Fri May 10, 2013 8:18 am

Is it worth it to go for the UV glass stuff?

I want to frame the Squadt Assembly promotional poster that I got from the show.

I dunno, preference I suppose. But I do know that pricing for the UV glass is super expensive. I don't think its necessary as long as direct sunlight doesn't hit the poster.

+1 to all of that.

I wouldn't even begin to consider using UV unless the print is really valuable and it will be hanging in a spot with a lot of sunlight. It's just way too expensive. I have Luke Chueh's disintegration that I've been needing to frame for a while now, and UV glass would probably cost the same as the print itself because it's so huge.

I like to use the sectional frames from hobby lobby or michaels for most of my stuff. Use a 40% off coupon and it ends up being pretty inexpensive. Hobby lobby will cut glass while you wait too.

I have a terrarium with a UV spotlight and the amount of UV that is blocked by regular glass will surprise you. So I have to agree with the above, only if absolutely necessary (direct sunlight with thin windows)
