When you choose to order a print from my shop, depending which piece you choose, there may be a variety of different framing or mounting options to choose from. If you've never seen them before, they can be overwhelming. Some options can help to protect the print from being damaged as they have a layer across the front of it, others are purely cosmetic.
If you don’t want to have just a bare print, but you’d either like to not frame it at all, or frame it yourself, ordering a mounted print is a great way to do that. Having the mount provides protection for the piece, as well as adding some aesthetic value. Of course that depends on the type of mounting you choose. With most mounting types, the print is attached to it at one side only, however with the reverse acryllic mounting, the front is covered too. As such, Giclée printing is not available, and a standard photographic type print msut be used insstead.
When getting a piece framed, there’s various types of frames to choose from. The selection could be based on a number of factors, two of which being which best suits the piece being framed, and which best suits the space it’s going to be hung in. Our framers provide four different types of frame. However, depending on the piece, not all options may be available to choose from.
Like with the frame types themselves, there’s a variety of moulding options to choose from too. In most cases, the moulding will be selected based on what I think matches the print the best. Such moulding isn’t available on mounted prints as they’re intended to either be framed seperately, or hung as is.
