TYPES OF MOUNT
Single: One layer of mount, usually in a neutral colour. The rule of thumb is a tone darker than the paper .
Double: Two layers of mount.. The norm is to have a neutral colour outer with about 5mm of a stronger coloured inner mount.
Triple: Three layers of mount.. start playing with our framing studio and you’ll see!!
Extra Thick: The simplicity of a single mount with the depth of a double.
