Framing

All of my images can be framed in a variety of ways to suit your tastes and home décor.

My preferred method for displaying my high resolution and richly toned prints is for them to be made as “acrylic glass” prints, which are prints mounted onto a 3mm aluminium dibond back and with a block of acrylic glass bonded on top, between 2mm thick (for prints with frames) and 6mm thick (for unframed prints up to c. 120x180cm sizes, larger sizes are 2-4mm thickness).

These can be presented with or without a surrounding frame. Without is for a modern, sleek look, or with a wooden or aluminium frames gives the image more substance. 

These solid wood frames can be in smooth white wood, black oak or brown alder, or in natural oak, walnut or maple.

Aluminium frames can be silver, gold or black.

All of my images made as acrylic glass prints can be in any size, on a single panel, up to 500cm wide x 240cm tall.

Traditional framing with an acid-free mount (or matt) board also looks fantastic, but because glass is more fragile, the maximum sizes I limit my prints to with these frames is 135cm width in panoramic (1:3) format, or 100cm in standard (2:3) format. They are available in larger sizes on special order, please email me for more details.

Framing

Framing is very much a matter of personal taste.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss what might work well in your home or office.

If you send me an image of your room, I can superimpose with photoshop your choice of image onto your wall. Seeing it in context can help you decide better your frame choice as well as the size of image.

The default framing style

The default framing for any acrylic glass print on this website are wooden frames, which I have chosen for their minimalist elegance. These are either the Basel style which has a 9mm shadow gap around the picture, or the Hamburg style. See details below.

All images ordered as framed acrylic glass prints up to 150cm wide will have a frame with a front section 15mm (Basel) or 20mm (Hamburg) wide and 31mm deep, and can be either in white maple, black oak, brown alder, or in natural woods of walnut, oak or maple. The oak and walnut frames have visible grain texture, the others are smoother.

Larger sized prints wider than 150cm are priced with the same frames and colour options as above but the front profile section will be 31mm wide (Basel) or 40mm wide (Hamburg).

If you would like to order an acrylic glass print in a size of 150cm or smaller and would prefer the wider profile wooden Hamburg or Basel frames, or any aluminium slim or square profile frame, there will be a slight cost difference, please contact me for details.
