When mounting artwork we need to consider durability. A giclee print is valued for it Archival properties but as mounting is irreversible it would no longer be considered so. We recommend perspex face mounting for high gloss finish and dibond/aluminium mounting for matte finish prints.
We can offer a matter varnish to increase the durability of the print but this comes down to personal preference and the practicality of the environment the print will be displayed in.

Mounting is a great addition to your printed project. Many of our clients opt to mount their work as they feel that the rigidity and extra depth created produces a professional appearance. Often printed paper stocks can be difficult to display without looking ad hoc but the process of mounting a print onto a rigid board can solve this problem and also increase the practicality of fixing your work into place.
We offer a selection of rigid substrates that are great for mounting, these range from the most common foam centered board (aka foamcore or display board) through to a range of specialist materials for signage and exhibition design. The factors people often consider when choosing their material are weight and durability. Foam centered board is great for temporary installations because it is light weight and therefore convenient for both transportation and installation. If, however you wish to create a panel which could be re-used multiple times, a more solid material such as PVC foam board (Foamex) is a great option as its’ density creates a durable finish with strong corners. Our specialist mounting and laminating machine provides a seamless finish, and our professional guillotine allows us to cut perfect edges to any of your mounted boards. If you have any specialist requirements that you have not seen information about on our website please feel free to ring or e-mail us to discuss your project.
