“Shrink-wrap” is a method of protecting artwork from environmental damage caused by handling or air-borne particles and is fast, non-permanent and inexpensive. It’s a great way to protect art or photos for storage or quick display. The art is usually placed on a Fomecore* substrate and enveloped in a clear inert plastic bag that is then heat shrunk to tighten the package. The artwork is safely behind super clear protection and is easily removed when desired. Shrink-wrap is an excellent way for artists or collectors to display multiple items clearly without having to frame each piece.
* Fomecore: A light cellulose product sandwiched between two cardstock weight papers, providing support and stiffness.
Illustrated are some of the pieces we have done.
