At Inframe Gallery Ltd we frame all items, where possible, to a conservation level. This means that what we do to your items will be 100% reversible.
All Materials used will not damage your items or artwork, we do not use glue or staples. On most items we use a conservation grade gummed hinging tape to attach your image to the under mount, this can be removed if necessary, on other items where this method is not acceptable we have various other methods depending on the item or artwork. These range from photo corners to platform mounts and we will advise on the best method depending on your item.
All of our mount board is acid free, which means it won't bleed anything into your artwork and it won't discolour. All images and artwork are mounted using and acid free under-mount.
UV Protective glass is also available, which can remove up to 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays, which will reduce the artwork from fading.
We operate a Valiani CMC mount cutter, this means we can cut any design out of mount board to further personalise your picture or item .
Things we can cut out and do on our mount cutter include:
V-grooves, Open V-Grooves, Shapes, Pen lines/drawings, Word Mounts, De-boss Lines/drawings, Multi Aperture mounts and much more.

We specialise in framing military medals and other medals. The methods that we use to frame them will not damage them in anyway. We like to recommend bringing in a photograph of the person the medals belong to so we can incorporate it in the frame as well as any other items which you feel are relevant (cap badges, id tags).
You can bring you cross stitch or tapestry to us for framing if it is already stretched, or we can stretch it for you.We use several methods for stretching depending on your requirements, as standard we lace your cross stitch or tapestry.
