Types of glass for frames


5 Oct 2009 7:37PM
Does anyone use anti-reflective or anti-UV glass in frames? If so, which type?
Its the anti-reflective glass I'm interested in, since it can look very good I'm told. I've found that there are 2 types of anti-reflective glass - etched (cheaper, but can look diffused, especially when not right next to the print) and coated (good but very expensive).

Thanks

Contact Lion framing in Birmingham. They do a good range including several types of coated glass, which is awesome when used for a low-key pic.

Thanks, I might start using the coated type & increase prices a little.

I have non-reflective glass as an optional extra and examples of normal and NR framed prints around the studio - there are very few people who choose standard glass after seeing the difference.
