Custom-cut Mounts for your Framed Picture Piece
Bearing in mind that when it comes to framing up a fantastic photo or piece of art you can't beat a good-old bit of
'Mount board'.

Mount-board comes in all different shades, textures and thickness and can provide a visual difference in really making your image stand out and look simply grand!

There are numerous combinations and types of cuts that can be achieved with different thickness, textures and colour-combos of not only the surface of the card but also the inner 'core'.

The Lil' Picture Place has a good cross section of mount-board
to choose from.
Many styles and colours to match your requirements whether it be minimal singular 'window', multiple window holes or more elaborate shape-cut sections, even lettering shaped cut mounts.
Guidance and good assistance in choosing your mount is always available.
Three levels of Framing Standards Provided.
Three Levels of Standards Offered for Framing to Suit.
There are actually five levels of Framing Standards as determined by the Fine Art Trade Guild.
We have however whittled them down to three.
As to simplify the options but not compromise the final result. Having knowledge of the five standards alone indicates the awareness of the framer of whom can apply the craftsmanship and skills needed to meet those standards and to subsequently use those determined values to provide correctly framed artwork for any given frame request.
Our three levels of Framing standards are described below.

Exhibition / Gallery Standard:
Top grade framing that meets Art Trade Guild Standards. Visually enhances focal work. Full protection from microscopic airborne particles and safeguard from acids generated by framing materials. Up to 35+ years protection ensured.

Home / Domestic & Commercial Display Standard:
Visually enhances photograph or artwork and provides a high level of protection from physical and mechanical damage. Up to 20+ years preservation under normal conditions.

Value / Budget Standards:
Providing an acceptable frame for the minimum cost. Offers some degree of protection but no pretense is made for safeguarding it's appearance long term. Great for Poster Reproductions, home and office wall deco-displays.
