There are different kinds of mounting techniques. We will help you determine the most appropriate method for your artwork, taking preservation standards and your budget into consideration. Special care is always taken when handling your one-of-a-kind artwork.

Canvas Stretching

The purpose of stretching a canvas is to prepare it for framing. Canvas is wrapped around wooden stretcher bars and stretched so the surface is smooth, taut, and wrinkle-free. We stretch many canvases, both painted and unpainted. Depending upon the size of the canvas, we have different sizes of wood stretcher bars we use to support the fabric.

Dry Mounting

Dry Mounting vacuum heat seals artwork to a rigid backing like foam core or mat board. Mounting of prints, posters, and newspaper articles ensures they lay nice and flat.  We can dry mount paper art up to 48 x 96″.

Needlework – Fabric

When framing handmade works of art such as embroidery, handwoven or painted fabric, we determine the appropriate mounting method such as, lacing or pinning. Parthenon Framing will help you press, block, and mount your needlework or fabric using appropriate preservation practices.
