Block mounting for a lower cost option

Block Mount Keep Calm 1


Want to frame something but don’t want to pay for a frame?

Some items don’t warrant the cost of a frame but deserve to be on your wall.

Petone Frameworks recommend you consider block mounting in cases like this. 


Block mounting is a less expensive method with a minimalist look.


What is Block Mounting?

Block mounting is a way of pasting paper art onto 9mm, or 12mm, or 18mm, or 25mm MDF board with a coat of lacquer for protection.

The default edge colour is black, but we can make the edge any colour you may want to see.
