EconoSpace Framing Spacers

EconoSpace Artwork Spacers were developed to create a proper airspace between the artwork and acrylic or other types of glazing when floating art within the frame treatment. Doing so prevents problems such as staining, possible adhesion of the art to the acrylic, mold growth, and paper buckling, which can cause damage to the art.

Follow these steps to use spacers in your next custom frame treatment:

1. Prepare your acrylic for mounting EconoSpace. If using UV acrylic, take note of the UV label, as this is your surface side.

2. Position spacers on the reverse side of the acrylic and simply cut to the desired length. Now peel up only the edges of the protective paper, and then peel off the protective covering from the EconoSpace. Adhere the spacer flush with and to the edge of the acrylic. Do NOT attach spacer to the frame. Now work your way around the three remaining sides.

3. Once the EconoSpace is attached, flip the acrylic over and place it on the artwork. Now peel off the protective surface cover. Position your frame, flip over, and then install your securing hardware. Be sure to avoid applying pressure when installing the securing hardware. It is ideal to leave the entire package a little bit loose in order to prevent the art and backing from buckling.
