Framing and mounting

7"x5" and 10"x8" prints can be supplied with wooden or silver-effect frames (without mattes). 

We also offer faux mounts, with club, event and crew information printed alongside a photograph as shown above. The photograph, mount border, bevel, text and club logo are all printed on a single sheet of photographic paper and looks similar to traditional cardboard mounts from a very short distance away when framed. Look here for more details.
