Whether it is a simple timber shadow picture frame or an ornate gilded frame, City Art Depot will work with you to reach a framing solution that will best complement your art work. City Art Depot mouldings are profiled, cut to size and joined in our workshop. They are then finished with the optimal surface to suit the specific needs of the art work in question – be it a stain, lacquer, gesso or gold or silver leaf finish.
As conservation picture framers, City Art Depot uses museum-standard materials – included mattboards, backing boards, hinging materials and glass – and techniques to ensure the long-term protection of your art work (read below: What is conservation picture framing?). The resulting framing solution not only displays your art work to the best advantage but also encapsulates your art work within a secure environment safe from the damaging effects of dust, mildew, insects or fluctuations in temperature or humidity.
New technologies at City Art Depot including a state-of-the-art digital matt cutter and mounter/laminator also allow for the manufacture of elaborate matts, bulk matt cutting at affordable rates and mounting and laminating of art works of a wide variety of sizes.
