Fine Art Picture Framing provides a wide variety of services, here are some of them:
Standard Mount Frames: These can be single, double or multiple mounted with a wide range of colours available to choose from. Double and multiple mounts can enhance the appearance of framed artwork and they also distance the artwork from the glazing. This is especially useful when framing pastels as static from the glass can attract particles from the image.
Multiple Aperture Mounts: If two or more artworks are to be displayed in the same frame, then multiple aperture mounts can be cut to accommodate them.
Surface Mounted Artwork: This is when the artwork is placed directly onto a mountboard without a window mount. The mountboard forms a border behind the artwork and a spacer is used to set it back from the glass. This is used especially effectively when the paper has a deckled edge which is considered part of the artwork.
Close Framing: This is similar to surface mounted artwork. In this case, the edge of the paper is not seen as the artwork goes to the edge of the frame. A spacer is used to place the work away from the glass.
Float mounting: Similar again to surface mounted artwork. In this case, the artwork is raised off from the mountboard to give the impression it is floating.
Box Frames: These are frames designed to display a 3D object or other artwork where depth is required.
Glazing: Standard 3mm picture glass is the default glass used. But if the artwork requires additional protection from UV rays to help prevent fading of the work, then this can be used. In addition if perspex is preferred, perhaps to keep the weight of the frame down, then this can also be provided.
Hand finished frames: Frames can be finished to give a lime washed effect, they can be hand painted to a specifed colour or they can be stained.
Bespoke moulding: Moulding can be commissioned to a specific profile either provided or designed here. A minimum order of 30m is required for this service.
Delivery: Artwork can be delivered within the Bristol area.
Home installation: Frames can be installed in the home.
Conservation mountboard is used as standard. Works on paper are placed between an undermount and windowmount and secured with acid free tape.
