Framing Photographs

 

Framing

When framing photographs, our experienced staff, who all come from artistic backgrounds, can guide you through the framing options available and help you decide on the right framing solution for your artwork. A good starting point is to consider the period and feel of the image and how the frame may fit with your interior/purpose. All our framing is carried out to conservation standards unless otherwise specified.

 

Mounting

Things to consider when mounting a photograph include; how much of the paper/image (signatures and inscriptions) do you wish to see?, do you want the image window mounted or float mounted?, how much width and what colour would you like any mount to be?, If you need a spacer how deep would you like it and what colour? We can advise on certain kinds of conservation board that will not affect the photograph for example buffered or non buffered. For valuable photographs, we generally use photo corners to fix the photograph as this is the safest way to fix a photograph. The photo corner are then usually hidden with a window mount. The flatness of the photograph also needs to be considered and dry mounting may be an option.

 

Glazing

UV filtering glass and acrylic is available if you are worried about the fading of the image. If reflections are a problem then we can offer anti-reflection glass.
