Framing Services: Welcome

Years Of Framing Expertise

When meeting customers to discuss their requirements I'm able to draw on my knowledge and expertise. My ability stems from years of framing whilst working to the Fine Art Trade Guild's standards. To become a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild I, like all members, had to show my work to two establish members of the Guild. We must keep up to date with all technical methods and subsequently have monthly meetings. From traditional to alternative my framing is bespoke and I'm here to help.

My recent work includes:

Framing Elements 
mouldings

Mouldings

I have a vast array of mouldings in a range of different shapes. They can be plain wood or coloured such as smooth, grained, distressed and mottled.

 

Beyond this, I'm able to offer mouldings where the wood came from trees grown in certified forest manages by Forest Stewardship Council.

mountboards

Window Mountboards

Window mountboards have a variety of advantages. They create a space between the artwork and the moulding. This space, together with the appropriate colour, will draw the eye to the picture. They also create a gap between the glass and the artwork and subsequently stop any moisture permanently sticking them together.

 

Pastels, chalk, and pencil work must equally have a gap between it and the glass. No gap will mean that parts of the pigment will transfer to the glass. If a window mountboard isn’t used, a spacer is required.

glass mouldings

Glass

Choosing the right glass is an important aspect of designing your frame and I'm here to assist with that. Many of my customers are surprised to learn there are different types of glass, including float, diffused, conservation, anti-reflective and museum glass.

 

Moving away from glass, polystyrene and acrylic are possible. The plus side is that both are lighter than glass and the shatter-proof is five times stronger than glass. The downside is that they scratch easily and attract dust.

 

To ensure the glass you choose complements, rather than detracts from your picture, contact ALB-Framing. With my expertise, your picture will hang proudly.

Stretched canvas

Stretched Canvas

Your stretched canvas hung onto the wall would look fantastic. There are important factors of which stretcher bars must be strong enough and if needs be it has crossbars. These will prevent the stretcher bars from bowing.

 

Please contact ALB-Framing and I'll look forward to helping you design your stretched canvas.

block acrylics

Block & Acrylic Mounts

Block mounts have pictures securely stuck to the front. They could be a finished MDF and the size varies allowing them so that they stand on a shelf or if larger on a wall.

 

Acrylic mounts are different, and the flat picture is stuck behind the acrylic. It's true to say that some pictures shouldn't be used and I'm able to explain, therefore please contact me at ALB-Framing.

Medals & Memorabilia

Box Mounts are often used to show medals and certain types of memorabilia. Dependant on the width of these items means how deep the moulding should be. Sowing is often used to secure what is shown inside the frame and in this this medals frame, behind the window mountboard the medals are sown as well as the small metal part that's under the ribbon. Great care must be taken and this frame shows it.
