  • What is a mount?
    A mount (also called a mat) is a piece of board that sits around your photo/picture/artwork to enhance it. It acts as the primary framing mechanism for your picture, and should compliment the picture itself as well as the moulding (the frame you see on the outside). It also helps to prevent your picture from coming into contact with the glass which can cause damage. A mount can be used in many different ways. Colour choice is important: a classic, subtle choice would be white or cream, or you could choose to pick out a particular detail or focal point in the picture. You can layer mounts to give depth, add interest, or to balance the overall look and feel of a framed piece. Don't worry, your framer will guide you through this choice to help you get the best finished product possible!
  • What do you mean by "aperture size"?"
    The aperture is the size of the cut-out or hole in the middle of the mount, or mat.
