You can select any size up to the maximum print size. To do this just type in one measurement and our software will calculate the second size automatically to retain the proportion of your image.

We strongly recommend a picture mount as they are an ideal way to enhance your pictures in the best possible way, they also keep your print or photo away from the glazing. We offer a wide range of colours chosen especially to complement the widest variety of subjects. You can choose between either a single or double mount. If you wish to have a double mount it is normal practice to have the top mount in a lighter shade and the bottom mount in a darker shade to enhance your artwork. Alternatively you could have both the top and bottom mount the same colour to give your artwork more depth. If you prefer a single mount then select the "Single" option in our design studio.
