The reasons for using a passe-partout are manifold, because framing with a passe-partout opens up various design possibilities to skillfully present a picture and underline its effect.
Not only can valuable works of art be stylishly framed with passe-partouts, but photos such as wedding pictures or photos of children can also be beautifully accentuated with a passe-partout.
A passe-partout is a sturdy cardboard frame surrounding the artwork or picture within the actual frame. The use of a passe-partout offers several advantages: it protects the picture and gives it more stability. However, the aesthetics and visual effect are just as important. Because the fine art of the passe-partout lies in directing the eye to the picture within, without being an eye-catcher in itself. The artwork is given more depth and expression through the distance between the frame and the image.
The passe-partout is a central element of stylish framing. By choosing different colors and thicknessesthe passepartout and the frame are perfectly matched. In addition, the passe-partout protects the artwork, because the glass surface of the frame doesn’t touch the picture. Moreover the passe-partout absorbs humidity.
