When finishing your work, it’s important to think about how the mount or frame can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your work, and additionally, what your requirements are in terms of archival stability or budget.
One of the most important elements to consider when choosing how to finish your work, is that the frame type and moulding compliments the look of your work rather than dominating it – our client service team are always on hand to advise with this, with years of experience, and we have a diverse range of sustainably-sourced mouldings available to choose from.
Alongside the aesthetics of the piece, framing is also often chosen as a type of finishing because if its archival values – a particularly important consideration for galleries and museums as well as individual artists or designers. Our frames use, as standard, anti-reflective Artglass, which is the best option for reflective-free and neutral viewing without the distraction of reflections of the surrounding area. Artglass also incorporates a 70% UV filter to protect your valuable artwork from fading. In addition to traditional glazing, we also offer durable and lightweight Perspex – perfect for larger frames.
For additional protection for your artwork, our passé-partout’s, or window mounts, only use the finest 8-ply acid-free and neutral PH museum conservation-quality board, which is certified by The Fine Art Trade Guild and offers exceptional preservation qualities that conform to the highest conservation standards.
Additionally, the wooden mouldings we use for our framing are from sustainable sources that are managed to meet environmental, social and economic needs for both the present and future, as certified by the FSC scheme.
