Professional photo mounting & framing

Photographic mounting

Photographic mounting is a great way to present your photos or artwork for exhibitions or the home.

Surfaces such as Aluminium and Dibond are prized for durability, MDF for rigidity, Foambard and Foamex for lightweight versatility. Reverse Perspex is ideal for vibrant colours and aluminium adds a modern twist. Each material has its own particular characteristics so please feel free to contact us if you would like some advice.

Handmade photo frames

Our bespoke framing service gives you the choice of the classic photo frame in either oak veneer, smooth black or white smooth wood in either narrow or wide settings. The photo frame comes with or without window mounts and uses Water White Float glass in 2mm and 3mm thicknesses giving optimum colour rendition.

You can also choose just to order your photo online, then come and see one of our framing team to choose from six styles of picture frame, thousands of frame mouldings, and a wide range of framing glass.
