Are there special framing requirements for antique prints and maps?

We recommend the following general guidelines: Mounting: Use archival, acid-free material only. The artwork should be tipped-in, or hinged, to the mat using a reversible archival tape or similar system. A map should never be glued, heat-mounted, pressure-mounted or taped flat to the backing board. Framing: We recommend glass or Plexiglas coated to protect against Ultra-Violet light.
