There’s nothing more frustrating and I think we’ve all experienced this – you’ve bought a lovely new picture or just had something framed, you’ve hung it on the wall only to ﬁnd that for the majority of the day, all you can see is a reﬂection of yourself, the room, or the window opposite.
For years, the only solution to this has been to use non-reﬂective glass but let’s be honest, it might reduce the reﬂections but it kills the clarity of the picture, dulls the colours and is akin to looking through fog!
The good news is that glass technology has come along way recently and none of us need to put up with reﬂections in our pictures any longer. Let us introduce you to ARTGlass, (also known as invisible glass) and when you see it, you’ll know why!
ARTGlass reduces reflection to just 0.5%, provides a 90% UV protection to prevent your pictures from fading and offers crystal clear clarity – honestly, you won’t think there is glass there at all. Having offered ARTGlass to our customers for the last 12 months, since it became affordable, we are now using it on the vast majority of pictures we frame. The consensus from customers – “it’s a no-brainer”. And some are even bringing in their older pictures to have the glass changed over to ARTGlass.
Don’t get us wrong, standard picture framing glass is still very appropriate for many things. Being the cheapest option, it is great for those who are looking to frame something on a budget. We still use standard glass on a daily basis – but it’s becoming less popular as more and more people learn about ARTGlass and see the difference it can make.
Why not pop into the gallery and ask us to show you an example – you will be amazed by the difference.

We’ve used ARTGlass to give UV protection & reduce reﬂection on this recent framing job. The dark blue mount shows off the colour in the ribbons and the selected frame gives a simple but classic look.
