What mountboard do you use?
use Colourmount/ Slater Harrison and Arqadia mountboard both of which has a
"stay- white" core and are acid-free and 1.4mm thick,

What's a Single Mount ?
A single mount is one layer of mount
card, just one colour, our single photo
and picture mounts are made to the most
popular size to fit popular frames sizes and picture/photograph
sizes , we make the outside size around 1mm smaller, so you are
sure the mounts will fit your frames. All our mounts are cut to
fit, to give a window size up to 1/4"(5mm)
smaller, so your photo/picture does not fall through the
What's a Double Mount ?
Double mounts are two layers of mounts board, usually the top mount is one colour and the under mount another colour ( You can have the same colour if you like) the top mount is cut so that about 5mm of the under mount shows, to give you a accent colour, maybe to pick up a colour from your picture.
What's the Biggest size mount do you make?
We can also supply other sizes you may require up to 70cm x70cm, this our maximum size due to handling problems through the postal system.
What mount colour do I need?
Can you cut other shaped/ custom shaped windows
Yes we can, well within reason, if you
send us an image, drawing or a photo of what you would like cut, we can tell you
if it is possible. We charge a 'Conversion Fee' to covert your design in to a 'cutting
file' for our computer mount cutter, this can take some time to do, so the
fee can vary. When we have converted your design to a cutting file, and test cut
to make sure that it cut right, we will send you an image of the finished design
for your approval.

is Backing board?
Board is used for backing the artwork or image to give additional support. We
use our standard mountboard as the backing.
Why do you use safety acrylic glazing?
We use safety acrylic glazing for safety reasons and for transportation, we do not want you to open up the package to find broken glass in your new frame.
Delivery can take.
For mounts 4 – 5 working days, normally we have found that 2 – 4 days .
with frames 4-10 working days, normally we have found that 3 - 5 days
size do I need?
our mounts are cut with a window that is
5mm smaller over all, so your artwork does not fall through, as photographic
paper is not always the right size.

In the unlikely event that it does, just send us a photo of the damaged packing and mounts, we will then send replacements free of charge
