We use only the highest quality museum board for mounts.

Artwork can be window or float mounted depending on the style and nature of the artwork. We use a variety of hinging methods but all to an archival standard and with acid and solvent free materials.

We can make multiple window mounts within the same frame, double thickness mounts for a deep bevel, raised float mounts, the mounting of books and other heavy objects.

We can also dry mount artwork when it is important to keep things flat or when artwork such as large photographs is sensitive to moisture and temperature change.

We can give advice about the aesthetics of mounting artwork, the kind of space that a picture needs around it, whether it is better to float or window mount and the colour of the mount board.

The mount board that we use in most cases is white or off white, occasionally cream or black. We believe that neutrality and understatement are key to the best presentation of artwork.
