We believe that the quality of framing is just as important as the picture itself. Therefore we use only the highest quality frames and framing materials.
Your signed photo is mounted onto Kapa Foam board to ensure they stay flat within the frame. A soft white card window mount is then expertly bevel cut to the size of your print. The window mount’s outside dimensions fit within the appropriate size frame.
The mounted print, window mount and glass are then sandwiched within the frame, sealed from behind with a backing sheet and appropriate fixings attached so that your framed image is ready to hang.
