All Cadremont Photo Mounts are uniquely cut to a 45 degree angle , we only use Conservation Level Mountboard  this guarantees it is 100% acid free, white core as standard and precision cut using the latest digital technology

This is essential - Conservation mountboard is guaranteed for 300 years, and will not stain or leak on to your artwork. Personally we would not recommend using anything less.

Using a deeper 45 degree angle on the bevel of the mount gives your artwork much more depth to the final product - we are unaware of any other manufacturer that can provide this

As exhibition specialists, we use Swiss digital technology to guarantee pefection every time. Each variation of mount is fully customised for your requirements - size, shape, aperture, frame size, colour.  Please click on the categories below to see more - Single Mounts - Double Mounts - Extra Thick Mounts etc

All photo mounts fully comply to FATG (Fine Art Trade Guild) Conservation level. They also pass the Silver Tarnish Test and Photographic Activity Test

Some people call them picture mounts others photo mounts or even photo mats if you are in America. So just to avoid any confusion - they are all exactly the same thing.
