Framing Services

The Framing Lot provides a comprehensive mounting and framing service. We offer framing of different levels - budget, standard, conservation and museum - which can be discussed at the time of order to ensure that you are receiving the best level of framing to suit your work.

 Budget Where price is all important and the item to be framed has no great monetary or sentimental value.
 Standard Sometimes referred to as Commended - suitable for general items which can easily be replaced. It offers minimum protection from atmospheric pollution and acid damage.
 Conservation Suitable for limited edition prints, originals and items of sentimental value. This offers a higher level of protection from atmospheric pollution and acid damage and will help maintain longevity of the framed item.
 Museum The top level of framing that is available at the present time. All processes used must be reversible, UV protection as standard with museum quality glass, offers the best acid free environment within the frame.  This type of framing is ideal for highly valuable originals, prints and other irreplaceable objects.

 Quality of workmanship and service remains high for ALL levels of framing.
