How To Choose A Mount

One of the important decisions that needs to be made when mounting or framing you art / image is the mount, there are a number of decisions that need to be considered:

The different types of mount boards used is also important, the 2 main types commonly used are cream core and white core / conservation white core. Cream core is the cheapest option, this has a cream colour to the cut bevel in the mount board aperture and will discolour over time going brown. White core and conservation white core have a white colour to the cut bevel edge and under normal conditions will remain white

Although white core is a more expensive mount board than cream core we only us WHITE CORE as a minimum for all our picture framing.

Depending on the artwork being framed there are other options, if you are unsure of your requirements please call us and we would be more than happy to discuss the other mount board types available
