FRAMING BEAUTIFULLY WITH LITTLE EFFORT
Insert picture flat into passepartout
The framing of artworks with a passepartout is one of the most classic ways of framing works. The separation between passepartout and picture creates a perfect stage for your work of art and it is set in scene especially. The picture has the same dimensions as your picture frame and the glass does not lie directly on the object. Covering a flat picture with a passepartout is a very simple and fast way of framing.
This type of mounting is suitable for:
This type of mounting is ideally suited for flat paper work such as prints, photos, drawings and sketches, as well as certificates, posters, art prints and fine art prints. The glass does not rest on the picture and is therefore particularly suitable for sensitive surfaces. Since no glue is used, the picture can be framed without leaving any residue or damage, which meets conservation requirements. Thus, this method is also suitable for valuable works and originals.
This type of mounting is not suitable for:
This method is not suitable for the assembly of corrugated papers and 3D objects. Here you have to use a different mounting method.
And that's how it works:
Open your picture frame and have everything you need ready.
Insert the image into the basic element. It is best to hold and lift the paper diagonally to avoid creases.
Use the hand brush to carefully remove dust and debris from your image.
Replace the upper frame and press it down lightly. The picture frame closes quickly and easily thanks to our magnetic frame principle.
Now look at your finished artwork and be inspired by the simple but stylish way of framing your picture.
4. Insert passepartout
Now place the passepartout on the image and remove dust and foreign objects again.
Now insert the glass into the basic element.
Use the cleaning cloth to remove dust and fingerprints from the glass.

The frame should be slightly larger than the paper for flat insertion. This avoids waves. In addition, papers with standardized dimensions are not necessarily exactly made to measure.
The colour of the passepartout should be a shade darker or more yellow than the paper of the picture. So the picture looks whiter, fresher and newer.
