All of our passepartouts are acid-free, age-resistant and preserve your poster prints. What is a passepartout? The word derives from the French word passe-partout, which means "passes everywhere" and is defined by Wikipedia as "a piece of cardboard with one or more holes laid behind a glass sheet in a frame to prevent the image from coming into direct contact with glass". A passepartout is also a perfect way to enhance your poster by directing extra focus to it.
Some of our posters are designed with a built-in passepartout, but for the posters that do not have this perk it is possible to buy a separate passepartout. The passepartout is also a great tool for shifting focus and highlighting a particular object in your gallery wall. Along with other elements like colour of the frames, style and design of motifs on the prints and decor in the room, the passepartout allows you to really let your personal style shine through. Are you wondering what size passepartout you should purchase? Make sure the passepartout has the exact same size as the frame you are buying, however pay attention to the fact that you should order the poster one size smaller. So if you want a passepartout for a 12x16 in frame, you will have to order the poster in 8x12 in (A4) size for it to fit properly!
