Delivery & Framing
Free deliveries within the UK and quotes can be provided for those of you living elsewhere.
Your artwork will be delivered within 14 days and (depending on the size of your print) will arrive safely in tissue paper and bubble wrap either inside in a cardboard tube or reinforced envelope both of which are suitable for national and international delivery.
A bespoke framing service is available and quotes and options can be provided upon request. All our frames are made to order by a reputable frame maker and usually have a lead time of three to four weeks.
We suggest a box frame for prints. This is a popular frame which creates a space between the artwork and the glazing which is integral to museum framing standards. Box frames have a clean flat face giving them a contemporary design whereby the proportions of depth and face are carefully balanced. We also recommend the artwork to be float mounted within the frame which enables a small gap between both the mount and the glazing. A classic mount is also available, this is a process whereby the classic window mount is cut so that it covers the edges of the print. It is placed on top of the print within the frame giving it a flat finish. Both the box and the classic mount frames can have a black or white spray finish.
Our framer maker uses conservation standard framing which means that all the "supports" such as tape, board, back mount etc. are ph neutral, i.e. acid-free, to ensure your print is well protected.
All frames come with a split baton hanging system to keep the frame surface tight against the wall. This is very easy to install.
Frames can have either a perspex or glass front. Perspex is used for international clients as it is much lighter than glass and does not break easily. Perspex looks exactly like normal glass and is being used by many artists for their larger artworks.
