Artists Frames | no problem

We offer a range of natural wood frames for artists to paint, stain, wax and finish to there own style. A great way to control framing styles.

Mount board Designs


We can supply mount board in over 400 colours and finishes including museum grade boards, conservation, solid core, white core, black core, metalics, rice paper and vellums.


We use a Wizard computerised mount cutter to cut all of our picture mounts to ensure they are millimetre perfect.


A mount board not only protects, by providing separation of your art work from the glass in the picture frame, it can also form an integral part of the overall look of the finished artwork by using a variety of different mounting styles and designs.


Designs on the mount board can include intricate patterns, wash lines, V grooves (see single mount),offset and Chinese corners together with letters, names and shapes. More details and designs can be found on our dedicated picture mounts page.

Double Frames & Slips


Rather than use mount board to create separation from the glazing, a double frame, or a slip can be used. This is the preferred method for many artists who frame water colours, acrylics, etc under glass and for oils where a perception of depth is required (oil paintings should not be framed with glass).

Backing Boards


All frames are backed with MDF or fluted pH Neutral backing board from Art Bak. We stock traditional, conservation and water resistant options.




Glazing … which is option is best?

We stock a wide range of glazing options including styrene, float glass, diffused, conservation, and specialist Art Glass and museum grade glazing. See more on our glazing page.
