Our Mats and Frames

Our block print frames are hand made by the wonderful craftspeople at Dard Hunter Studios in Chillicothe, Ohio. Created from quarter-sawn white oak, each frame is cut to size and hand stained to ensure a quality product. We're particularly fond of their through mortise-and-tenon joinery that is timeless and classic.

Run by the grandson of Dard Hunter, Dard Hunter Studios is dedicated to raising awareness of Dard Hunter's contributions to paper making, printing, and the Arts and Crafts movement.

Our prints are matted with Artcare Archival Plus, a museum quality conservation mat. Artcare proactively traps and neutralized pollutants and acid by-products preventing discoloration and damage, and ensuring the longevity of your print.
And we use UV-protected glass, to ensure the longevity of the prints. But for the best result, please keep the prints away from the direct harsh sunlight.


How to Hang Our Framed Blockprints

Our frames use a slide-and-hang system for hanging. It's a wonderful system that doesn't scratch your wall with metal hardwares on the back of the frame. 

Once you decide on the location of your framed print, drill a 1/4" to 5/16" screw into the wall leaving 1/4" of the screw protruding from the wall. You can then slide the framed print into the screw. 

It's easy to balance the artwork, by moving it right and left along the slit. 

If you want to secure it further, you can apply a small amount of museum putty on the bottom corners of the back of the frame and press them against the wall.
