MOUNTS

QUALITY

All of the mount-card that we use conforms to the Fine Art Trade Guild “Conservation Standard” and is FSC® certified.

All of our mount-board is manufactured in The Lake District by James Cropper PLC who make the only FSC certified mount-boards currently available in the world.

Mounts are cut with a 45° bevel on the aperture and square cut on the outside edge.

We can supply Museum Standard cotton boards on request.

 

TYPES OF MOUNT

Single: One layer of mount, usually in a neutral colour. The rule of thumb is “a tone darker than the paper”.

Double: Two layers of mount.. The norm is to have a neutral colour outer with about 5mm of a stronger coloured inner mount.

Triple: Three layers of mount.. start playing with our framing studio and you’ll see!!

Extra Thick: The simplicity of a single mount with the depth of a double.

MULTI APERTURE MOUNT

Using our state of the art CNC mountcutter, we can cut as many apertures as you like: single, double or triple. We can also design the perfect layout without wasting any materials… You can’t do multi-aperture mounts on the website at the moment, but if you’ve got an idea – just ask!! …. best of all: email us a drawing with measurements etc
