Linen-backers and restorers of authentic vintage posters
since 1995, M & W Graphics offers full conservation for
most works on paper, using only archival, non-acidic materials.
Our services include any preparatory work – when required,
old backings of card, linen or board can be safely detached
from valuable paper. Tape and stains can also be removed.
Posters are usually then strengthened and preserved by mounting
them with wheat paste to a sheet of high quality acid-free
paper, itself bonded to a duck canvas.
Additional touch-up can be highly effective but should be
kept to a minimum. Our philosophy of conservation is certainly
to breathe new life into sometimes very distressed paper, but
always with care not to overwork a piece. All our services
are fully reversible.
