Acid-Free Mount Board
This is mount board manufactured such that active acids are not included or are eliminated so that it has a neutral pH factor of 6.5 to 7.5 at the time of manufacture. The presence of an alkaline buffer will reduce or eliminate damaging effects of these acids for the duration of the buffer’s effectiveness. The most common buffering additive is calcium carbonate. Some acidic materials are chemically neutralized with the addition of alkaline products; other materials are processed to remove the acid. We use acid-free Mount board as standard at Iframe Wedding Photos.
Acid-Free Hinging Tape
We use PH7-70 tape for fixing your photo to the mount board. This is best practice throughout the framing industry.
The inside edge of the mount board window is cut to a 45 degree angle. All of our mount board windows are cut with a bevelled edge. This allows about 1/16″ of the core colour to be visible.
Double mounts consist of two thicknesses of mountboard, each cut with a single aperture. The upper mount’s aperture will be ½” larger in either dimension to show ¼” of the under mount’s colour all round the aperture.

At Iframe wedding photos we offer the choice of 2mm float glass or 2mm non reflecting glass .
