Framing and mounting

7"x5" and 10"x8" prints can be supplied with black or natural wood frames. Larger prints can be supplied with black frames. 

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, samples and instructions on how to order.
