We offer a mounting service. This is where prints are attached to a rigid substrate either as a precursor to framing or as an alternative type of hanging. The process is fully archival with acid free sheet adhesives being laminated onto to the print and the substrate instead of using a heat press which can damage delicate giclée prints. The substrates are fully archival and can have a brace attached which includes a cleat for hanging directly on the wall.
We surface mount prints on to a variety of boards and substrates. We also facemout prints to plexi. This is where the print is adhered to the reverse of a sheet of plexi to provide a stunning glass like finish. We stretch canvas prints over wooden stretcher bars much like a painter would for a traditional result. These are then suitable for hanging bare or framing and can be painted on to enhance or embellish.

The rigid materials we have Aluminium, Dibond and Sintra are intended for independent hanging and therefore can come with a brace. Materials such as archival foamcore, museum board and 3mm Sintra are intended for support within a frame as they are not rigid enough to keep flat even with a brace.
Non archival foam core is intended for short term exhibition and display or informational or non art pieces. Where longer term stability isn’t important and 0.5″ fomacore has excellent dimensional stability. It will not warp or bend.
