Old Documents

This category applies to all the rest of the paper items you may want to frame, including wedding invitations, land deeds, and calligraphy to name a few. Whether they are in good condition or not, it is always best to use conservation framing materials and techniques to prelong any futher degradation.
 
Otherwise, use the same types of frame designs recommended for other art on paper.
 
Tip: Tattered edges, rips, and even missing parts can enhance the character and hint at the age of these older pieces. It is common to float them in front of a background mat so the irregularties of the artwork can be seen and enjoyed.
