We have over 250 different mounts available. The mountboard comes in thicknesses of 1400 microns, 1500 microns, 2000 microns, and 3500 microns and in a range of Fine Art Trade GUild Mountboard Levels.
If your looking to customise your mount design then look no further, our Gunnar Computerised Mount Cutter allows us to give accurate and perfectly cut mounts every time. Here are some of the ways we can customise your mount:

It takes a lot of practice and a steady hand to create the perfect finish however it is worth the patience when you see the finished result!

This has allowed framers and manufacturers to ensure Mountboard meets the exact requirements for the four different framing levels. These requirements include PH level, contents, lightfastness, bleed resistance, use of OBA’s, Microchamber Technology, and lots more! Below is an overview of the different levels…
