Our images are professionally framed, ready for you hang. With 30 years experience, each image is presented in a high quality, responsibly sourced hard wood frame, with wood backing. All images are framed in a way that prevents warping, U.V. damage, Yellowing with age, or movement within the mount. Nylon cord, securely attached to the rear can be hung on solid, wall mounted fixings. Two felt protective pads are attached to both bottom corners to protect walls and the frame from marking or paint transfer.
To protect our prints from light damage and bleaching, we present them behind a layer of cast acrylic. A high quality material, it offers many benefits: including 92% optical clarity and 90% UV protection. What is more, as it is shatter-resistant, it is much safer than glass in your home or workplace, and reduces the likelihood of damage during shipping.
