Hey guys, I have been collecting pictures for years, and I figure its finally time to put them up on display. I, currently, have regular picture frames to use, but I have heard this can be bad for autographs? That it could cause fading? If this is the case, can anyone point me in a direction of getting better frames?

you want to keep the photo off of the glass-because over time it will stick to the glass and you always want to keep them out of direct sunlight-i would buy some mat board and mat the photo's in the frame-you can even buy pre cut mat board like (8x10,16x20)or there are frames you can get that have it in it-like i have some of my photo's in 11x14 with a mat cut to 8x10.i got them for 5.00 apiece at family dollar.if you look in my bucket you can see them-the frame is black and the mat is white.i hope this helps.

I agree with everything Kobe said, if you want to take it a step further you can get pre cut plexi glass with UV protection (I do this with all my auto stuff) for added protection.
