About trAcery Prints & Framing

What we do
We are an online business selling old prints.  Most of our prints are antique, many from the late eighteenth or early nineteenth centuries. The majority of our prints come to us unmounted and unframed and so we frame and mount them ready to hang. The exception is where frames and mounts are original, or an integral part of the print's value, in which case we keep them whilst ensuring, as far as possible, that the print is protected from the harmful effects of aged wood and paper. 



How we work 

Our prints are old and we like them that way. What that means in practice is that we don't restore old prints to look like new. Whilst we might remove surface dust and repair minor tears, our emphasis is on celebrating the age of the print and at the same time conserving it for the future by using conservation materials and framing techniques whenever possible. Our frames are predominantly FSC certified.
