Picture Framing Materials
All picture framing materials used will not damage your items or artwork, we do not use glue or staples. On most items we use a conservation grade gummed hinging tape to attach your image to the under mount, this can be removed if necessary, on other items where this method is not acceptable we have various other methods depending on the item or artwork. These range from photo corners to platform mounts and we will advise on the best method depending on your item.
Picture Framing Mountbards
All of our mount board is acid free, which means it won’t bleed anything into your artwork and it won’t discolour. All images and artwork are mounted using an acid free under-mount.
There are several types of glazing to choose from. Depending on your needs, we can recommend they type of glazing needed for the artwork. See our Glazing tab for more info.

Types of Picture Framing
We specialise in framing military medals and other medals. The methods that we use to frame them will not damage them in anyway.
