Mount Cutting Service

To order mounts simply email your order or enquiry to mounts@loveseyfineart.com.

Mounts can be cut to any size up to A1 (33in x 23in) in a range of popular colours as illustrated below. I can offer a fully customised service so if you are unsure as to whether your needs are possible - just ask!

Mountboards used are Daler Rowney Studland mountboards which have a neutral pH value. The surface paper, core and backing are specially treated to minimise the effect of atmospheric pollutants and to enhance their useful lifespan. They meet Fine Art Trade Guild approval for standard mountboard.

The basic functions of a mount are twofold;
1) The mount helps protect your artwork or print by providing a gap between the frame glass and the surface of your picture.
2) The mount will greatly enhance the appearance of your framed picture and offers a professional presentation. A mount can also crop a picture which does not match a standard frame size.

Hints and Tips for selecting mounts:
Remember, the colours you select should enhance your picture. If your image has very predominant colours or enough of a particular colour, a plain cream or white mount will compliment it best. When using a double mount, a darker inner and paler outer mount will give a greater impression of depth - ideal with a distant landscape picture, for example.

Remember, 'wider is better' - If your mount is too narrow, the eye is drawn to the outside instead of being drawn to the centre where it needs to be. As a guide, an 8in x 10in mount should not be less than 1.75in wide.

You can select a single or double mount which can be of the same colour or differ depending on your desired effect. Double mounts add a perception of depth to a presentation.

When you look at a framed picture, the first thing you should notice is the picture, the mounts are there to enhance your artwork.
