What a mount can do for your art

The mount is a very important part of a frame design, it not only unifies the space between artwork and frame but also protects the artwork from a number of hazards.

As framers, our first concern is to present artwork at its best. We also know that sometimes a print, photograph, or similar type of paper-borne artwork can look “lost” in a frame without a mount. It can be difficult for the eye to move from the art image out to the solid, sturdy frame surrounding it. A mount provides a transition between these two worlds.

That’s also why mountboard colour, shape, and textures are important in a frame design. Everything from how light or dark the border colour is; a double or triple mount; or a border with a specially cut opening affects how you see and react to the image in the frame.
