The Framing Process

Framing Photographs

It is essential that the photograph remains perfectly flat and does not wrinkle over a period of time. We mount it onto archival mount board using a dry-mount vacuum heat process to achieve this.

The photograph can be directly framed, but usually a surrounding mount is added to add impact and balance to your image. Frames are cut with extreme accuracy, assembled and glued to provide maximum strength.

Framing prints, watercolours, acrylics and paintings

The framing process is similar to framing a photograph but dry-mounting may not be used. Generally original works or pieces of high value are not glued down flat but will be taped using acid free materials. This preserves the value of the piece.

The artwork may be float mounted to show its originality. We are also able to frame sporting memorabilia, small artefacts and three-dimensional pieces.
