How to present your Artworks

Good presentation makes a big difference to your artwork, especially when it comes to exhibiting them.

However strange it may seem, you don’t need to be a professional framer in order to give a ‘professional’ touch to your art – and it can be done by some simple tricks!

Mounting

Mounting your artworks doesn't only make them look 'professional' and exhibition ready, but helps protecting them as well!  There are two main ways to do it, depending on the type of art you have.

Floating mount

Good way to present your works that are either not in the middle of the paper, or where the edges have an importance / look good with the artwork.

Floating mount has a telling name: the work attached to the mount board will be slightly 'floating' off. To achieve this effect, you attach the work with adhesive tapes in a T shape:

Window mount

The other popular type is the window mount, where the artwork is surrounded by a frame of mount board. The perfect choice for displaying prints and photos.
