From ‘linen mounting’ to Japanese paper backing, restoring posters renews their beauty and ensures these entertaining artifacts can be framed and enjoyed.

Treatments for posters include but are not limited to:

  • Returning suppleness and strength through Linen Mounting (SEE VIDEO) or Japanese Paper Mounting techniques

  • Cleaning, washing, removal of dirt and brightening

  • Reduction and reversal of discolouration and stains due to foxing, water/tidemarks, light exposure, acidic framing materials and other sources

  • Removal of old repairs, acidic backing boards, and reversal of detrimental mounting techniques

  • Repair of tears, reduction/removal of creases, and loss compensation

  • Chemical stabilization and neutralization of products of deterioration

  • Preventative care through the construction of custom enclosures or returning to original frames with acid-free materials and UV filtering glass.
