Dry Mounting

Step into the realm of transformative framing at Darling Picture Framing, where we introduce you to an innovative process that transcends the ordinary – a process that guarantees not just flatness, but permanence in the elevation of your cherished items.

Imagine a technique where your valuable items are delicately embraced by heat-sensitive boards, sealing them in a timeless dance with precision. This is no mere framing; it's an artful fusion of technology and craftsmanship, meticulously designed to ensure that your items not only achieve a state of absolute flatness but maintain this pristine condition for years to come.

This revolutionary method is particularly ideal for larger prints that demand a level of sophistication beyond the ordinary. The potential waviness that often plagues substantial prints is effortlessly conquered by our heat sealing process. It's a shield against the forces that could otherwise introduce unsightly creases and folds to your prints, preserving their integrity and presenting them in a state of perpetual elegance.

Plaque Engraving

At Darling Picture Framing, we usher in a new era of personalised distinction through our cutting-edge Roland EGX300, a masterful tool that allows us to elevate plaque engraving to an art form. Our diamond engraving technique goes beyond the mundane, offering you a canvas where the story of your achievements, milestones, or special moments can be etched with unparalleled precision and sophistication.
