MOUNTED PRINTS

Our selection includes dozens of different variations for photo presentations.
On this page we present the most common options.

SILISEC®

Silisec® is a process used for face mounting photographs on acrylic glass.
Because the print is ”glued” to the acrylic glass, the result is a completely flat mount of the image.
The whole process is dedicated to mounting the print without air bubbles or smears.
For the reverse, we advise 2mm Dibond or 2mm anodised aluminium.
All Silisec® prints are equipped with an aluminium back-frame that allows the work to be hanged.
The frame is hidden and leaves the picture floating on the wall.

  • Max. Size 130x300cm   
  • Weight with hanging rails approx. 7,5 kg/sqm.
  • Museum Quality / Archival / pH-neutral
  • Clear acryl 98% UV-filter / Matt acryl 100% UV-filter
  • anging rails options 15mm / 20mm

ALUMINIUM MOUNTED PRINTS

Aluminium is considered to be the best way to mount a FineArt photographs.
2mm aluminium offers a smooth surface onto which we can mount a wide range of papers.
Aluminium mounting is widely popular due to the archival quality of the material.
2mm thick anodisised aluminium is our most popular archival exhibition mounting option.
For the back-frame you can choose 9mm / 15mm / 20mm aluminium hanging rails.

  • Max. Size 149x299cm.
  • Weight with hanging rails approx. 6,5 kg/sqm.

DIPOND / DILITE MOUNTED PRINTS

A lightweight alternative to aluminium, Dibond is perfect for archival framing and large print mounting.
When weight is an issue because of framing or transportation 2mm Dibond (aluminium composite) is a great choice.
Weighing less than half that of aluminium this material is composed of a dark plastic core with a thin layer of aluminium coated on each side.
This archival mounting solution is perfect for very large pieces and touring exhibitions.

  • Max. Size 149x299cm.

Framed prints (Nielsen / U-profile /  box frame )

Framing is a traditional way to present fineart prints.

Aluminium frame + passepartout + glass is the most popular option of framing.
Floater frame is suitable for Silisec® and dibond mounted prints.
Aluminium u-profile is budget choice for homes and trade shows. (Made in Finland)

ARCHIVAL MOUNTING

Archival mounting is a process for photographs mounted on to material that will not degrade over time and in which the print will not suffer degradation due to the mounting process.
We use a PH Neutral adhesive mount film, making it compatible with sensitive FineArt papers. Materials such as FOREX and HDF contain acids and by-products that will break down over time. Dibond, Aluminium and Silisec® are fully archival.

Protective Laminate

Laminate is a protective film that is applied onto your print minimising damage from scratching, UV rays and fingerprints.
Laminating prints used to be a standard method in gallery exhibitions allowing the prints to be cleaned with a damp lint free cloth.
This has however changed in the last couple of years, with both galleries and artists realising there are both pros and cons to having your prints sealed.
We offer different laminates, but don't necessarily recommend them

Maximum widths:

  • Matt / Glossy150cm
  • Matt Satin 130cm
  • Floor laminate: 135cm
  • Double side laminates 135cm

 

MOUNTING ON TO CUSTOMERS OWN BOARDS.

We can mount images to almost any boards as long as they fill criteria’s below:
The surface has to be flat, fat-free, lint free and even.

  • Max. width 150cm.
  • Max. thickness 7cm
  • Cutting customers own boards 10,00€/board

ALUMINIUM HANGING RAILS (sub frame)

Hanging rails are for hanging Aluminium, Dibond, HDF mounted prints and Silisec® mounts.
The sub frame is an aluminium profile attached onto the reverse side of the mounted material.
A sub frame will give the impression that your artwork floats from the wall.
Available thicknesses are 9mm, 15mm or 20mm. 

You can also order J-shape counter parts for the wall.
