About our mounts

All our mounts are cut from Conservation / White Core mount boards as a minimum standard. The mount boards we use are from a UK based manufacturer, all Conservation boards fully comply to FATG Conservation level. Whitecore boards meet FATG Standard level. We cut various mount board thickness’s but offer 1400 micron as our standard mount board. (Please call us for details and prices of our 2000 and 3500 micron mounts if required)

We use state of the art computerised mount cutters which enable us to cut an abundance of aperture shapes accurately and also allows us to personalise your mount to help portray a special message, for more information on customised picture framing mounts please go to Customising your Mount
