All our framing is conservation standard which means that all the “supports” such as tape, board, back mount etc. are ph neutral, i.e. no acid, to ensure your print is well protected. Another criteria of “conservation” framing is that the process is reversible, i.e. the artwork can be taken out and absolutely no damage is done, so it can be framed in another way in the future.
Conservation framing involves the fewest number of small attachments between the artwork and its support panel. This always results in a very slight undulation across the surface of the print, caused by the print expanding and contracting in different levels of humidity. This indicates that the artwork has been mounted properly and is not a defect in the artwork or the framing”.
Our frames are bespoke clean white frames, with two options of mount.
Classic mountThe classic window mount is cut so that is covers the edges of the print and placed on top of the print in the frame.
When a print is float mounted the fewest number of small attachments are put between the artwork and the support panel, so that the print is elevated from the back of the frame causing it to look like it is floating in the frame. All edges of the print are visible and the print casts a shadow on the back of the frame.
Please note that undulation across the surface of the print, caused by the print expanding and contracting in different levels of humidity is more visible in float mounted artwork than in classic mounted artwork. That means that the artwork will never be completely flat in the frame. This indicates that the artwork has been mounted properly and is not a defect in the artwork or the framing.
The circular frame is an unusual and interesting way of framing. The circular frames are hand carved and they are created between our framer and circular hand carver. They make the artwork totally unique and have been really popular. All prints framed in a Circular frame are classic mounted.
We do ship framed pieces outside of the UK. For those pieces we use perspex glass which is lighter than glass and does not break easily. Perspex looks exactly like normal glass and is being used by many artists for their bigger pieces.
