The frame is sanded but otherwise un-finished. If left in its natural state, the Ash will age to a slightly deeper colour. You may like to finish the frame and any wood finish can be used such as stains, varnishes, clear wax or coloured waxes. Limed Ash is very popular and can be achieved with a single application liming wax.

Print & Fit:
If you choose this option, we will ask you to supply a digital image file of sufficient quality to print at 400x500mm- once you have an order number, you will be able to send it by email, dropbox, wetransfer etc..
We will then print this image out on Canon Semi Gloss 240gsm. FSC® Certified Photo-Paper, using our state of the art Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8400 printer with it’s LUCIA EX 12 Colour Pigment Ink system. Once printed, we bond the printed image to the undermount to prevent any possibility of wrinkling.
After fitting your image into the frame, we seal the back of the frame with brown gum tape and fit the hangings and cord. The finished picture will arrive with you (or whoever you send it to) professionally finished and ready to hang on the wall.
