Yes, the website calls it non-glare at the bottom of the page. :(

Re: Anti-Reflective Acrylic

I requested a sample.

I was under the impression this was anti-reflective but perhaps it's good old fashioned non-reflective. I didn't notice the text at the bottom.

I'll see once the sample arrives.

Anti-Reflective Acrylic

Has anyone used this anti-reflective acrylic for framing? As far as I know none of the framing suppliers do anti-reflective acrylic unless it's the expensive Optium or Lifetime. Anyone used it? https://www.cutplasticsheeting.co.uk/product/anti-reflective-acrylic-sheet/?attribute_pa_thickness=3-0-mm&...

OK. Thanks. It's a choice between being fully insured and reducing your insurance costs.

Insuring Equipment

I have a quick query about insuring tools and equipment. Do most framers insure everything so they are covered for replacing all their equipment and stock, or do you insure for the amount you need to restart your business? When we first started my business we bought all the equipment and moulding fo...

Re: Old / Antique Glass

The piece is roughly 1230 x 780mm - so reasonably large.

I have reused old glass for the odd old frame but most of my framing is making new frames. So this piece is likely to sit in my glass storage for years unless it goes to a good home.

Old / Antique Glass

Does anyone know if very old glass (pre-float glass) is valuable in any way? I occasionally get old bits of glass and I currently have quite a substantial piece, possibly Victorian. I'm not expecting to make a fortune from it; I just don't want to break it up without checking first. There must be pe...

Re: Hoffman Router

Justintime - I find underpinning joins very well on tulip and obeche, although I can't stack v-nails as high the Hoffman can route. Prospero - I store my timber in the place I cut. I might try leaving the cut pieces for a day or two though. I do notice corners moving overnight when the temperature h...

Re: Hoffman Router

Justintime - Are you saying the Hoffman makes the corners more likely to crack? Eeeeeeeek! So he had less of a problem when he used an underpinner? If that is the case, I think I'll save my money. I think gesso will always crack in the end. Has your friend tried gluing silk over the join? It helps a...

Re: Hoffman Router

Thank you for the information. I have to say I'm torn. I'm sure I'd use it and get good use out of it, but is it worth forking out the money for? Underpinners are great for most joining and I've never had a problem joining the harder woods as drilling and knocking in a nail usually gives a solid joi...

Hoffman Router

I am interested investing in a Hoffman router but I have a few questions. I was hoping some Hoffman users could give me some advice. I understand the Hoffman is good for joining harder woods but on softer woods does the Hoffman give a superior join to an underpinner? I'm interested in spray painted ...

Re: Inert spacers

By framing close up I mean framing with the artwork touching the inside of the frame. It would also come in contact with the spacer so needs to be inert or sealed. Econospace seem to be the only inert spacer available but their selection is limited. I was just interested if anyone knew of any other ...

Inert spacers

Does anyone know anywhere that supplies acid-free/inert spacers for framing art up close? It seems like the holy grail of framing materials. I know certain high-end framers use an inert plastic for spacers but they probably make their own. I you can also use mount board/foam board on small frames an...

As others have said, the score side faces outwards. You can put a small piece of masking tape on the score side before you put it into storage.
