What We Use

Our handmade, bespoke frames use the very best materials to protect and enhance your work.

We have an extensive range of contemporary and traditional frames on display for you to choose from.  All our chevrons can be placed next to your work to make your decision an easier one.  We have a wide range of natural wood mouldings which can be hand finished in a variety of colours.

The mount
We use acid-free and conservation materials to ensure your work is well protected. We have an endless array of colours to choose from including numerous shades of white right through to bright and vibrant colours.

We use a computerised mount cutter, so our finished mounts are extremely accurate, with neat corners.  We can design and cut mounts to fit your items, and can cut lettering or decorative shapes.

Mounting
Artwork is mounted in the most appropriate way on a case by case basis.  We have no one size fits all policy.  We try, wherever possible, to make sure mounting is reversible.  We use acid free tapes.  For items that require we have a Hotpress and can vacuum press items for a flat stable finish.  We also have cold press rollers.  For delicate items, such as fabric we often hand sew the item to an acid free backing board.
