Float mounting is a beautiful way to show off the textured edges of old papers, to preserve the visibility of artist signatures when they are on or near the edge of your piece, or just to add a little drama to your framed art. The type of artwork you send will determine the way in which your piece is floated. We use spacers to separate the acrylic and frame from your art and the mat board, suspending your piece between the materials.
Float mounting is available with our Ash Gallery, Avalon, Beaumont, Beverly, Black Walnut Gallery, Black Walnut Wide, Bleached Maple Gallery, Bolton, Brighton, Carson, Cherry Gallery, Cherry with White, Dorado, Dover, Gray Ash Gallery, Gresham, Indigo Walnut Gallery, Irvine, Irvine Slim, Lille, Mandalay, Madrid, Marin, Marquette, Mercer, Mercer Slim, Monroe, Monterey, Nassau, Newport, Olympia, Providence, Ravenswood, Richmond, Rosemont, Sonoma, Tacoma, Ventura, Verona, Walnut Gallery, Walnut Wide, and Wren frame styles.
Multiple Items: We will charge $25 for up to five Float Mounted items and $5 per floated item after that.
To request this treatment for your piece, simply select "Float Mounting" as your mat style. If your frame style is not eligible for float mounting (any of the frames not listed here), the float mounting option will not be available for that frame in the Mat dropdown menu.
