About Us

Art Display Essentials Fabrication started in the custom mount making field over 30 years ago under the name 10-31 Incorporated.  With over 8000 square feet of production space dedicated to full-time mount making in our 20,000 sq ft facility and a team of highly skilled mount makers.  We have grown significantly and we have learned countless techniques that empower us to serve you better. 

We are experienced with finding solutions for seismic-mitigating, traveling, theft-deterring mounts, textiles displays, acrylic book mounts, and nearly everything imaginable.

We work in a variety of materials, including brass, steel, acrylic and other specialty materials depending on the job. Collectively we have over 150 years of mount making experience in our building.  Unlike most mount makers we are capable of handling small artifacts, massive artifacts (weighing over 2 tons), and everything in between. 

We conduct the majority of our business in Manhattan.  We do weekly art pickup and delivery in New York and the surrounding areas.  Call to schedule an appointment with one of our art display advisors. 

What Makes a Good Mount?

A safe and secure mount should support and properly orient its object without causing damage, but also protect the object while on display.  Mount construction should incorporate the proper materials: steel for heavy objects, brass for delicate items, acrylic for books, and Ethafoam forms for textiles for starters.  A safe and secure mount should support its object without causing damage, but also protect the object while on display. Lastly, a well-designed mount should not distract from the display of its artifact. The delicate balance between safe display and optimal presentation drives the art of mount design. A mount should fully support the object yet not draw attention and so following the completion of mount making we color match the visible clips of all mounts to conceal them.
