About this deal

The choice between wood and metal frames will depend on your personal style, your space and the picture you're framing - learn more. But in reality a perfectly cut mat that proportionately surrounds your artwork can be done without needing a degree in physics.

Whether you're looking for a single or double mount, we offer a range of options to suit your preferences. I am not convinced that they were capable of measurings acurately to that level of accuracy at that time. We specialise in cutting picture mounts in any size you need, providing a seamless fit for your unique requirements. Anti-Static - Unlike regular acrylic, Artglass Lifetime Acrylic is anti-static and doesn't attract dust or other particles to the glazing surface. Simply select the size,colour, and style you desire, and our intuitive software will guide you through the process.When adding decoration to a mount or the proportions of multi layer mounts and frames I often use the rule of thirds, geometric and arithmetic progressions. Pete mentions that the balance rule is not adhered to slavishly, as some mass-production requirements may dictate otherwise and equal-sided mats (mounts) are much quicker to cut than those with a balance. I think it more likely that they just did it by eye and the measurements to derive the ratio were made at a later time. It is about expression, tallent and individually, plus so much which is not usually rigidly defined by rules.

ie Instead of white or black mounts, they have used Light grey / black core and weighted the pictures. A huge selection of templates, fonts and colours; endless choices at the tip of your fingers; easy editing and sending/sharing. The dreaded 'Blob' of silicone or double sided tape behind the photo inside one of those terrible blue or brown, strutted, cardboard mounts, again a practice that beggars belief, thankfully I have never ripped or destroyed a photrograph mounted like this, but how many other framers havent been so lucky? Some photographs are not reproducible, the negative or digitial file may have been lost or destroyed, to assume otherwise is arrogant folly.If you have a bespoke sized picture or don't know the dimensions, it's best to choose a custom-sized frame. Add three to five inches to the out side dimension of the photo to see what the closest standard frame size to use would be. The recognition of standards within our industry is the job of the Fine Art Trade Guild - I often wonder just how far they go to communicate with other allied bodies. I will quite often start with a neutral mount and one of my rules is that as you introduce stronger colours you reduce the size of the mount to maintain the balance of the composition.
