Tokaido Arts specializes in the preservation and presentation of fine Japanese woodblock prints. We offer a limited selection of custom matting and frames tailored specifically for displaying woodblock prints. All frames are built to your exact specifications, but we also provide recommended moulding and dimensions for all our prints. Prints are mounted and matted on silk-finished mat board using acid-free materials, and glazed with UV-conservation glass or UV-plexiglass.
