Artisan Frames

Glazing and Framing Options

At Artisan Frames we pride outselves on the quality of the frames we produce. We use modern tools, techniques and technologies to ensure your precious art is protected and displayed to its best advantage.

Heat Seal Laminating

Heat seal laminating is an excellent method of protecting and enhancing artwork or photos. Bonding photos or artwork to boards and laminating them can add value to your work and give them benefits such as moisture and fade resistance together with some UV protection.

Laminating will brighten the colours and also comes in various different finishes such as matt, satin and other textures.

The finishes can be used in children’s rooms, bathrooms and other areas where the painting must be more robust such as commercial offices and restaurants.

We can advise on the best type of glass for the job and would consider the environment the artwork is going to hang.

Float Glass

There are a number of standard glass types and these can vary on thicknesses:  2mm, 3mm or 4mm and can all be cut to size on site in our workshop.

There are also some variations on these such as diffused and other white water float glass that can be offered at competitive prices.

A mid range glass is Artglass, this is a recent addition to the rage we stock it is a low iron containing glass and very white in colour and this neutralized the reflections a great deal.

Tru Vue Glass

The range of Tru Vue glass we stock and can cut to your special sizes gives the perfect glazing that protects and enhances the work. You can really see the artwork and controls reflections.

Advanced coated glazing products is a must when framing precious objects or art and gives great protection from 99% harmful UV rays.

Safety Glass and Coatings

Glass can also be altered in a way to reduce risk or injury if accidentally broken and you can choose to have toughened or laminated. These finishes make the glass significantly stronger and can be useful in children and public environments.
