Frame Mouldings

Set the scene with the frame moulding – choosing the right style and size moulding will show off the art, especially when you consider your own interior décor as well.

Our experienced design team has sourced an extensive collection of high quality, solid-wood and metal frame mouldings to suit all art styles. All of our wooden mouldings are sourced with care to ensure the timber is of a recognised origin and we often deal directly with the mill, to further ensure quality and traceability back to the forest source.

An example of our mouldings

Picture Mounts

The picture mount draws the eye in to the artwork. You can either choose a neutral colour so as not to compete with the print and let it stand out, or for something more adventurous, a coloured mount can enrich the image further.

The functional role of the mount is to create a gap between the artwork and the glazing which helps prevent damage from condensation or high-gloss prints sticking to the glass. We only use acid-free mount-board, which eliminates the risk of burn – staining of the print due to contaminants leeching from the board. Our mounts are also white-core, which means the cut bevel-edge nearest the print remains crisp and white; lesser quality boards quickly discolour.

Glazing

The glazing plays a vital role in protecting your artwork from scratches, dirt and dust. At Easyart you have two options to choose from, glass or Perspex, both of which are incredibly high quality and ensure immaculate clarity and colour accuracy (the glass we use is picture framing grade 2mm float glass). Both options have non-reflective variants available too, which is useful if an artwork is going to be hung in the line of direct light-sources that cause reflections. A couple of things to note, there is a small reduction in image clarity when using non-reflective glazing and for our largest frames we use Perspex as standard for safety reasons.

Backing Board

To ensure your artwork retains its looks over time, it is bonded to an acid-free backing board (except if it is a limited edition). This prevents the print from wrinkling and from slumping within the frame. To finish off, we add a rigid backing board, which is secured and then all joints taped. This prevents the ingress of dust and any troublesome insects, as well as adding rigidity to the frame so it’s ready for hanging, and admiring.

Easyart Quality Production

Our team of framers cut, join and assemble every frame by hand – each one is a labour of love and is signed on the reverse by the framer who created it. We value quality above all else so the whole process is overseen by our Master Framer who ensures standards are maintained every step of the way, and also signs the finished frame. To help you get your work of art up on the wall as quickly as possible, each frame come with hanging fittings and a picture hook so you just need your hammer at the ready!

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.
