OUR FRAMING OPTIONS

ENHANCE YOUR PRINT WITH A MOUNT

Now's the time to think about how you want your artwork to sit within the frame. 

1. Trapped - for some artworks, you won't need a mount between the artwork and frame, especially for prints with a straight cut edge. This makes a trapped mount the perfect option for you.

3. Window - this is a classic style of mounting that creates clean edges, allowing your stunning artwork to stand out without any distractions.

2. Floated - this type of mounting raises the artwork, casting a shadow beneath it. Appearing as if your artwork is floating within the frame, this mount works best for prints with hand-torn edges.

PICKING THE RIGHT GLASS

To finish off your perfect frame, you'll need to choose the right glazing. Take a look at your options:

1. UV glass - provides protection against damage and fading by blocking harmful UV light waves.

2. ClearColour glass - this option offers the ultimate in viewing clarity. The high-quality anti-reflective coating means you see your artwork’s true colours.

3. ClearColour UV glass - this glass provides offers a unique combination of UV protection and anti-reflective coating.

4. High-grade cast acrylic - hard-wearing and crystal clear, this 3mm thick acrylic option doesn’t affect the overall impact made by your chosen artwork.

5. High-grade UV cast acrylic - similar to our standard acrylic, this option has added protection by blocking harmful UV light waves.
