Mounting Your Prints
If you haven’t ever ordered a mounted print, you may want to consider it with your next investment. Mounted prints are prints that are adhered to a solid backing. Instead of a flimsy paper portrait, you have a portrait that holds its form. Mounting your prints helps to protect them from bending and marking and keeps your images safer longer. All of our prints 11×14 and larger are mounted for you.
There are many different types of materials used to mount your images. One is the commonly used is art board (which is the most commonly used), foam core, the styrene board, and the Masonite backing.
Getting your prints mounted not only protects them better, but it also can create a few new options for you to display them. Because your print will now stand alone, you can display your print with out a frame. One easy look is to set the mounted print on a shelf leaning against the wall without a frame. Another more gallery style look is to attach a small block behind the mounted print and hang it to your wall. The block pushes the print out so that it now looks like it is suspended just in front of the wall. You can also hang the print frameless directly to the wall using Command wall strips.
Next time your order prints 11×14 and larger, remember we include art board mounting, so take advantage of the different options for displaying your portraits.
