Available Mounts

The current mount choices are:  

For 8 x 6" Photos these are: 

  • Eco Grey Raw Board Strut Mount.  This is a rigid, unbleached, eco friendly  650gsm board.  It features a milled deckle edge and a blind embossed key line (indent) around the aperture.  It is manufactured in the UK from fully recycled board and as it's unbleached the finish can differ to that shown and can have occasional flecks of colour.  Back and front are made of the same board.  These boards add a one inch frame all around the print size, eg an 8 x 6" photo comes in a 10 x 8" mount.

  • Vanilla Ice Cream Strut Mount.  This lightweight pale cream mount has a lovely soft feel. It is manufactured from fully recycled board and is bleached so has a more uniform colour than the Eco board.  It also features a single blind embossed key line around the aperture.  Back and front are of the same board.  These boards add one inch all around the print size, eg an 8 x 6" photo comes in a 10 x 8" mount.

  • Black Conservation Board with a whitecore.  These boards are made from chemically treated pulp, are acid free and buffered with calcium carbonate to guard against contamination by air-borne acid.  These boards do not have a strut, so are not free standing.  These boards have a slightly different aperture than the two above, cutting out the white border of the print completely, but are roughly the same size overall.  Manufactured in the UK.

For 8 x 8" Photos these are:

  • Vanilla Ice Cream Strut Mount.  As detailed above.

  • Bevelled Black Strut Mount.  Manufactured in the UK from a matt Black Conservation Board with a whitecore 1000gsm card.  The aperture has a white bevelled edge.  The back is made of a heavyweight grey board.  These boards mostly have a one inch frame all around the print size, eg an 8 x 8" photo comes in a 10 x 10" mount although the 12 x 8" print has a 14 x 11" mount.

For 12 x 8" Prints these are:

  • Eco Grey Raw Board Strut Mount. 

  • Vanilla Ice Cream Strut Mount.

  • Bevelled Black Mount.

Please see above for details on these mounts.

For 12 x 12" and 18 x 12" Prints:

  • Black Conservation Board with a blackcore.  These boards are made from chemically treated pulp, are acid free and buffered with calcium carbonate to guard against contamination by air-borne acid.  These boards do not have a strut, so are not free standing.  There will be no white border of the print visible on these mounts and the frame size will be just over 2" (60mm) all around the print.

  • White Conservation Board (with a white core).  As above.
