(Click To enlarge colour chart   in separate window)

Showing some of the standard colours available. For general mounting, crafts and small quantity trade orders we highly recommend this Slater Harrison mount board (neutral pH)  for good trade quality and   economy.  Acid free and conservation boards are available for items that require longer term protection or conservation and are available in most of the colours on the chart above. (We stock these too).

  • Minimum order value of 10 (plus P&P)  may apply  for custom mount cutting for colours outside of our special offers range. This is because of additional packing and carriage for larger mounts -please see below!

  • Delivery times for special orders- if we have to add your special colour to our weekly order expect slightly longer for delivery. We order board stock on Mondays for delivery to our premises on  Wednesday each week, so you order may not be cut until Thursday or Friday, it then has to be packed and despatched. So despatch can be anything from 1 to 7 working days from receiving your order. Stock held fluctuates on a day to day basis, we are a busy framers making up to 15,000 frames a year for shop counter orders and shop sales. All orders are on a first come first served basis, regardless of whether they are over the counter or online. We try to give the same level of service to all our customers. note -we cannot answer mount enquiries for online sales by telephone,  99% of these enquiries can be answered  by email or better still on our FAQ pages! You can also request a quote by email here.

PACKS of 10 and special offer packs-

  • Special colour Packs: Standard size mount packs but in special order colour (all same colour): add 1 to mount pack price. (for example  a 10 pack of 10x8 mounts is 6.99, so in a special order colour its 1 more = 7.99)


  • Custom aperture/window size add additional 1 to pack price.

  • Custom Size individual mounts  Add additional 1 for each different custom size (e.g. if you have one or ten all the same size, the charge is 1).

  • Custom Colour  individual mounts For custom colours, please add 1 for each custom colour (so for example  a custom size in a custom colour as well is an additional 2 to be added to the total order)  Specify size of both the window and the mount required.


Examples- so a custom size and  a custom colour is an additional 2 to be added to the total order. You can change your order, remove items or change quantities any time before checkout. So please check your items are correct.

To order the sizes you want, and the colour options  we have simplified the pricing and ordering. You simply place an order for the standard items, and then upgrade the order using our "extras" buttons. (when we receive your order, your extras will be added to the job spec.  You simply order the closest size of mount (or pack). e.g. if you want 15x11" you will order 16x12, and add your custom size or colours if required.
