What a little matting can do …

Sometimes a piece comes along that has some serious acid problems, and there’s not always a lot you can do (in a certain price range). But it can be de-acified, and the re-matted and framed. This is really helpful in stopping or slowing down the problem in many cases.

It may seem obvious, but here are some photos, with and without mat, so you can see how nicely a print will clean up. We did treat this piece to stop, or at least very much slow down, the problem. It will look nice for years to come. These photos just show how nice a simple mat can be. Don’t give up on the pieces you like, see if they can be fixed.
