THE FRAME & BOX
The base of the frame is made from a piano black acrylic as is the back panel of the frame. The front panel is made from a clear acrylic and there are 4 silver magnets, one in each corner which holds the panels securely together. The magnetic system makes it super quick and easy to change the image inside. The frame can be easily rotated to display in both landscape and portrait orientations.
Please Note: The frame will not work with an unmatted print. If you wish to use a styrene mounted print instead of a matted print, please ensure it is 2.8mm or 1/8 inch in thickness.
This box is designed with a lift off lid and holds one Folio Art Frame. The base of the frame sits in a special slot within the box and the panels of the frame sit on top. The box itself is covered in a classically designed diamond pattern with a very light sheen. The interior of the box is beautifully finished in a plush black velvet.

We have 2 types of bevel cut mats to choose from: The Ultimate Mat and the Standard Mat.
The Ultimate Mat's patented design guarantees that your prints will never slip. They are a top loading, heavyweight bevel cut mat with a unique slide and lock design.
They allow you to easily slide in your print and lock it in place but they are also completely re-usable. Simply slide out the print and you're ready to use the mat again.
The techy bits:
The mats have a white core throughout and are made from a professional Archival board, which conforms to the Fine Art Guild requirements for Conservation (Level 2). The core is made from alpha cellulose fibres, featuring a soft, natural, white colour that will remain white. Each board is alkaline-sized, acid-free and calcium carbonate buffered for enhanced durability and longevity. Being conservation quality, boards are lignin-free with no optical brighteners. Cover papers are colourfast, resillient and bleed-resistant. The front board is the same as the back board giving it a really top end look and feel.
The standard mounts are pre-assembled bevel cut mats that are open on 2 sides so you just need to slide your prints in. The front board is made from the same professional Conservation board as our Ultimate mats.
The back board of the standard mat is from the cream core range of mount board. The back board core is made from virgin wood pulp with a characterisitc pale ivory colour. Each board is alkaline-sized and pH neutral.
Typically, the back board has been described as an Economy board. If you cut a hole in the backing board, then the bevelled edge of the back board will discolor.
Mats are available in 2 print sizes: 6 x 8 or 5 x 7. The overall size of the mount is 8 x 10.
