Various methods of mounting artwork within the frame are available and each piece of art is evaluated individually before deciding which method is best for that particular piece.
Conservation, or Museum, mounting methods are used to secure art to an acid free back board. These methods include corners, pockets, hinges or artist tape - depending on the needs of the individual job requirements.
FABRIC ARTS, NEEDLEPOINT & CANVAS STRETCHING
Fabrics and needlework art require lacing, pinning or "stapling", or "stretching", over an acid free substrate in order to secure it during the framing process.
Drymounting is the use of heat-activated adhesives in a heat press to adhear artwork to a backing. This is a permanant method of ensuring artwork will remain flat within the frame.
SPRAY OR WET MOUNT
This process involves applying glues in order to bond the artwork to the backing substrate.
