Close Framing is where the item to be framed sits directly in the frame, without a mount, the edge of the frame is against the edge of the image. Ideal for low value prints, posters etc.
A mount protects your artwork from direct contact with the glass in your frame, and can add a contrast or compliement the frame and your work. A double mount can add further interest or depth if it is required. We use industry standard bevel cutters to get a sharp, square cut every time. Circular and oval shapes can also be bevel cut.
Tray or floating frames are the modern and contemporary way to frame your canvas artworks. With both chunky and slim versions, we can supply and fit a frame to suit your decor, artwork or both. Your stretched canvas sits inside the frame, without glazing, but the edge of the frame gives some protection from damage.
We can frame all manner of three-dimensional items, including medals, clothes, memorabilia, badges and much more. Using shadow box techniques we can create a safe, secure and complementary frame with sufficient depth for most objects.
We pride ourselves on framing needleworks the correct way - your precious work is hand laced and gently strectched over a backing board to give a flattened, even appaearance that will stay that way. We never use adhesives on your needlework. We can add a mount to protect raised stitching if required and our anti-reflective glass gives an excellent finish.
Glazing protects your work, and we offer standard float glass as well as museum quality AR70 & AR99 UV protected/anti-reflective glass. Where weight or risk of breakage is an issue we can supply styrene or acrylic glazing for your project.
