Information

 

When you click on a selection box information about the choices will display here.

Complete both steps 1 & 2 to get an instant online quote for buying trade packs of custom sized window mounts, single or double, with or without barrier card and backing boards.

These packs are made to order, so if the exact materials that you are looking for are not among the options, please contact us for a quote by email or phone.








Window or no window.

You should select “no window” if what you want is mountboard cut to size, but with no apertures.

Or if you just want backing boards then you can use the “no window” option to reduce the number of required measurements.


Single mounts or double mounts?

A double mount is comprised of a top mount and a bottom mount.

The bevelled inner edge of the top mount is off-set slightly from that of the bottom mount.

The result is an attractive double line made by the parallel bevel-cut edges of the two mounts.


Select mount colour

All the colours shown below are white-cores by Arquadia, 1.4mm (1400 microns) thick.

The ones marked with a “C” are conservation grade.

Those marked with a “W” are standard grade.


Bottom mount colour

A bottom mount can be of the same colour as the top mount, or you could use a different colour to add some contrast or to suit the image being mounted.

We cut double mounts with the top and bottom mounts the same size externally, then stick them together to ensure that the apertures remain perfectly aligned.


Colour samples

Because of individual browser settings, it is not possible to reproduce colours on screen exactly, so you may prefer to see “real” samples before you make a final choice of colours.

One of our sample packs contains fifteen swatches, one for each of the colours shown below, and costs £5 (including postage).

When you place your first order you will be refunded the cost of the sample pack.

Contact us to place an order.


Barrier cards

Select an option from here if you want to place barrier card between the backing boards and your photographs, paintings, or prints. Or to add a little rigidity to cellophane wrapped mounts.

None of these boards are rigid enough to use as backing boards to picture frames on their own, but when included inside a frame they can give extra protection from impacts and the ingress of acid present in the environment.


Backing boards

All of these are rigid boards that have a brown “Kraft” lining on the outer face. They are all suitable for using as backing boards for picture frames, or for backing cellophane wrapped mounts.

Fluted board weighs the least.

“Solid” boards have a solid grey core.

Conservation lined board has a Kraft face on one side and a white conservation grade lining on the other.


Pack quantity

Enter a number between 1 & 50.

There is no minimum quantity, but the more you order, the cheaper the unit price.

For quantities greater than 50, the unit price will be the same as the 50 rate.

Please Note: If you enter “10” as the pack quantity, and you have selected mounts and backing boards, the pack will contain 10 mounts and 10 backing boards.


Units

Select either “mm” or “cm”.

Be sure to use the same units for All the dimensions you enter.


Border dimensions

Enter the exact width for the mount's borders.

The minimum width is 25mm (2.5cm)

If you are putting the mounts into picture frames then you should ensure the outer dimensions finish smaller than the frame's rebate by 2mm in both directions, i.e. 1mm all the way round.

To work out the outer dimensions you must add the top & bottom borders to the aperture height, similarly the left & right borders to the aperture width.


Aperture dimensions

Enter the exact size that you want your mounts cut to, making sure your prints overlap the aperture by a minimum of 4mm all round.

If you are putting the mounts into picture frames then you should ensure the outer dimensions finish smaller than the frame's rebate by 2mm in both directions, i.e. 1mm all the way round.

To work out the outer dimensions you must add the top & bottom borders to the aperture height, similarly the left & right borders to the aperture width.


Outer dimensions

Enter the exact size that you want your mounts cut to.

If you are going to put the mounts into picture frames then you should ensure the outer dimensions of the mounts are smaller than the rebate in the frame by 2mm in both directions, that is the same as 1mm all the way round.


Off-set

The distance between the bevelled edge of the top mount and the beveled edge of the bottom mount is called the off-set.

Minimum off-set is 4mm (0.4cm)
Top mount must remain at least 25mm (2.5cm)
