We recently refurbished our mountboard storage area, making picking & packing your mountboards even more efficient. They are shipped in durable packaging to ensure they arrive in good condition.
Order a min. of 10 sheets (same or mixed) to allow us to pack securely for delivery. You can order over the phone, by email or online.  A simple minimum order value of £50 applies across ALL products, meaning you can mix with materials & hardware.  We offer free delivery on orders placed online over £100 (£150 over the phone or by email).
 
If you use our Click & Collect service you can order as few or as many sheets as you need for collection at our Birmingham trade counter.

MAKE STORAGE EASIER ...
 
 
The Ultimo II® Mountboard Storage Cart helps keeps your mountboards tidy. This is usually a challenge when extracting smaller pieces that get pushed to the back. This cart is stable & free-rolling with 3 storage slots. It rolls under a workbench with 860mm+ clearance below, on 4 large wheels hidden in the chassis. It stores up to 160 standard size mountboards (1200x815mm) vertically, as well as foamboards & mounted prints.
LEARN A NEW TECHNIQUE ...
 
 
Why not learn or update your hand decorating skills?
Take a look at these well-written guides by Russ Wood. Russ is a highly skilled framer based in Colorado, USA, and is well-known for his unique decorative mountboard elements used with paper based media.  He has produced four guides based on his method for decorative mountboard elements, available through LION.  His work is simple, but wonderful. All guides are digitally printed and spiral bound at £20 (VAT not applicable).

MAKE YOUR OWN MOUNTBOARD CHEVRON DISPLAY STAND ...
 
 
...in minutes!
  1. Cut two pieces of 2mm MDF 185mm long (important) and approx. 200mm wide (can be varied as you wish)
  2. Choose any wood moulding 50mm wide. Mitre cut a pair with rebate length of 187mm and join as two L's
  3. Glue and staple the board into the L's, as per photo. This display should take chevrons from most brands
This is the perfect project to use up some scrap moulding pieces!
