ACRYLIC GLASS FOR PICTURE FRAMING
Clear, smooth acrylic for picture framing is indistinguishable from glass in a frame, and it’s half the weight of glass and shatter-resistant. For this reason, it is the first choice of many framers. Framing 4 Yourself offers regular, non-glare, or UV protective acrylic glass options, so every framing job is covered.
Our acrylic glass for picture framing is perfect for protecting your most treasured memories.
WHAT DOES ACRYLIC GLASS DO?
Acrylic glass is used widely in picture framing as a substitute for glass. Favored for its lightweight and shatter resistance, acrylic glass is safer to work with and less prone to breakage.
The primary purpose of acrylic glass is to protect artwork, photography, and prints from various environmental factors, including temperature changes, moisture, pollutants, and touching.
Another benefit of acrylic glass is that it’s less susceptible to breakage during the shipping process due to its shatter resistance. In contrast, glass frames are more likely to break during transport.
Framing 4 Yourself’s collection of acrylic glass glazes works to keep your framing projects safe without sacrificing quality.
FRAMING 4 YOURSELF’S ACRYLIC GLASS FOR PICTURE FRAMING
With three different types of acrylic glass for framing, Framing 4 Yourself has everything you need to complete your framing project.
Our most economical option, Framing 4 Yourself’s clear acrylic, is also the most traditional option as it looks just like glass (albeit lighter and shatter-resistant).
While it filters out more than 50% of UV radiation, clear acrylic glass is the best option for reproducible art such as posters, digital photographs, or art prints in open-ended editions.
Non-glare acrylic is treated with a light surface etch that eliminates glare. Not incredibly popular amongst framers for its cloudy nature, non-glare acrylic still filters out more than 50% of UV radiation.
Non-glare acrylic glass is perfect for posters, digital photographs, or art prints in open-ended editions if placed in direct sunlight.
UV PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Framing 4 Yourself’s UV protective acrylic provides an extra measure of protection for treasured art that is likely to increase in value over time. Because UV rays cause art to fade or yellow over time, this protective acrylic keeps your framed memories safe.
Choose UV Protective Acrylic if you’re framing original art, limited prints, or signed prints that you want to hold onto for an extended period.
WHAT ACRYLIC GLASS SHOULD I BUY?
If you’re unsure which acrylic glass works best for your framing project, all you need to do is answer these three questions.
ARE YOU FRAMING A POSTER, DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPH, OR ART PRINT?
Regular acrylic glass provides a clear, protective coating for posters, digital photographs, and art prints that’ll work great and not break the bank.
IS THIS FRAME GOING TO BE IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT?
If the frame is in direct sunlight with a glare, choose our Non-Glare Acrylic Glass, as it prevents unwanted rays from affecting the ability to see your framed projects.
IS YOUR ART GOING TO INCREASE IN VALUE OVER TIME?
For more valuable art projects, protecting them from the elements is key which is why we suggest going with UV Protective Acrylic, that’s great for original pieces and limited prints.
