Mould Styles & Material

Mouldings give the frame a face and provide a setting for an artwork so it's important to carefully select the material and its size. Our experienced design team have sourced a variety of frame mouldings and mould materials in either wood or metal, to suit all possible art styles.

Easyart custom wood frames are available in a selection of mould styles and finishes. We are proud to say that the wood we use is sourced from a recognised local wood mill and is FSC certified, which stands for the Forest Stewards Council and ensures that the wood is reliably sourced and grown sustainably.

Picture Mounts

A picture mount adds depth to your image whilst protecting it and will work with the frame to help enrich your art print. Unlike mounts used by cheaper framers (which are often treated with acidic paints), the material we use for our mounts are acid free, which means that it will not cause damage to your art print over time.

Glass or Perspex

The glazing shields your print from scratches, dirt and dust and prevents discolouration from UV rays as well as wilting, which is caused by heat. When customising your frame, you can choose between traditional picture glass or Perspex. There are a few things to consider when deciding which option to go for. Glass is the cheaper option of the two, but compared to Perspex, it is slightly heavier, and can easily be broken. As a shatter-resistant alternative, Perspex is the right option if you’re concerned about safety. By default, standard glass is selected on our small to mid-sized frames and Perspex is selected as standard on all of our larger, heavier frames. Non-reflective options are also available if you intend to hang your print in rooms that receive a lot of light. Although this is a great feature, this option does slightly reduce the quality of the image itself.

Backing Board

To help ensure your print looks great over time, it is bonded to a backing board. The backing board protects and holds the print and mount together, keeping everything sealed from dust and dirt.

Easyart Quality Production

The quality of a custom made frame is always clear to see and this is where our customers really appreciate the difference. Our frames are carefully cut, cornered and skilfully joined to fit the image perfectly, producing a bespoke finish. The whole process is overseen, signed and approved by the framer himself and our quality controller. Hanging fixtures & fittings including suitable picture hooks are supplied with every frame to finish off a well-crafted, ready to hang product.

More about framing

Exploded-product

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
