Stretching & mounting of tapestries, cross-stitch, canvas paintings & papyrus framing;
CANVAS STRETCHING We can stretch canvases to any size needed. We use standard stretcher bars or custom-made oversized stretcher bars.
Yes, We can handle sizeable oversize framing. Dave dropped into the gallery to have his unique hand-embellished block print framed. We used 12mm depth float conservation mounting to show the edges of the fine-quality handmade paper, added white slip to create the deep-mounted artwork behind a contemporary 85mm silver frame profile, and, finally, complete with UV Tru-Vue glass to protect the print from exposure. The oversized frame was finally delivered to his home in Milton Keynes, measuring 145cm x 120cm.
Dave’s comment,” Mission accomplished. Very, very pleased with it. Thanks for the advice and your tenacity in getting it right for me…
We hope our ICAS creative framing style will continue to bring years of pleasure & enjoyment to Dave, his wife & friends.
HOW DO YOU MAKE DECISIONS ON A FRAMING & MOUNTING STYLE?
A well-designed frame with a mount style can complement your art and deliver the overall experience. We will guide you with various ways to mount your piece, each idea of using different materials and a different overall finish.
Choosing the right colour tone of mount style is often down to the effect you are looking for, the type of art you are framing, and personal taste. A well-thought-out combination of frame profile, mount, and mounting style will enhance a photo, original art, print or memorabilia and give the piece an authentic visual identity.
Our average turnaround is 7-10 days, and we can offer a 24hrs – 48 hrs picture framing. (Subject to stock availability for an optional extra).
