Frame, Display, and Preserve Your Historical Treasure
We will help you store, safeguard, and present your new historical document.
For many pieces we sell, we send with it a folder that provides easy access and leaner storage. Moreover, they are safe for documents – acid-free environments.
The creation of a framed display is an artistic process. We work with a skilled fine arts framer, who understands that any historical document must have the proper acid free environment and will carry sufficient insurance to cover your property during the process. The variable components of the frame are the color and quality of the frame and the matting, the seat of the document (for instance, whether it is floated above the mat or laid behind it), and the image with which you frame the document, if any. Good framing will range in price from $250 on up, depending on the size of the presentation and cost of the specific frame. Double sided framing is a possibility, as are other creative means of preservation.

Clam shell binder
These binders are essentially hollow books, with space within to securely house a document. They sit comfortably on bookshelves and, instead of the title of the book on the spine, you can display your chosen title for the document. Opening these binders can often reveal an exhibit within, with an image of the historical figure, description and elegantly presented document.
