What is Decorator Standard Framing

Decorator Standard Framing (DSF) is a method of framing that is designed to visually enhance artwork, but not preserve it. DSF should only be used on artwork that is not valuable, has no conservation requirements and is for decorative purposes only. It is a less expensive type of framing as it utilises lower quality materials & techniques that may not be reversible. Beautiful hand crafted frames and elaborate designs can still be used with DSF, but it is not designed for the long term preservation of your artwork.
