Mounting involves permanently bonding your print onto a solid substrate backing so that it remains flat. The mounted print can then be used instead of framing your artwork so that it can be displayed directly on the wall. This ensures that your print will be the focal point of attention.
Choose the backing substrate
All the dry mounting that we do is done via a non-corrosive bonding glue. This ensures the print and archival mounting is done to the best of standards.
A strong and hard-wearing substrate that is rigid and gives a premium feel. The edges look like polished metal giving it a rustic appearance. As this substrate is heavier than most other substrates, the fixings that can be applied are split battens or a subframe.
An alternative to aluminium whereby a thin composite layer of aluminium is used with a black polyethylene core. This reduces the weight of the substrate as compared to aluminium, yet gives it strength and rigidity. The fixings that can be applied are split battens or a subframe.
A lightweight flat material that comes in varying thickness and comes in black or white. The recommended fixings that can be used is Velcro, although a subframe can be applied.
A PVC substrate is more heavyweight compared to a foamboard or Kappa as it has a fine cell structure. This in turn makes it more durable. The recommended fixings that can be used is Velcro, although a subframe can be applied. Foamex comes in black or white.
This is an alternative to foamboard that provides a flat smooth surface for mounting and provides a more rigid substrate than foam board. This is our most popular mounting option as it provides a cost-effective solution whilst displaying the print flat and rigid. The core comes in standard dark grey. The recommended fixings that can be used is Velcro, although a subframe can be applied.
