Understanding Mounted Prints

Mounted prints represent a creative process where your paper or canvas prints are affixed to a robust surface or “backing board.” This versatile technique paves the way for numerous applications, such as framing and wall hanging.

The process facilitates the mounting of prints on various substrates like wood, foam board, mat-board, and custom canvas projects, among others. A key advantage of mounting is that it keeps your photos or graphics safe from sagging, rippling, or other damage types. Furthermore, transporting and installing your graphics become considerably easier once they’re mounted. To increase the durability and aesthetic appeal of your graphics, you might want to consider both mounting and laminating them.

The Versatility of Mounted Prints: Beyond Offices & Galleries

The usage of mounted graphics extends far beyond trade shows, galleries, or corporate installations. In today’s business landscape, mounted prints and graphics have found their way into numerous practical applications for various events.

Your signage, posters, or vinyl graphics can be mounted onto an array of rigid surfaces like foam core board, styrene, PVC, gator board, and even acrylic signage. Besides strengthening branding, mounted signage often finds usage in-store to guide customers looking for specific products or services. Employing hanging signage and graphics in unused vertical spaces is an effective way to communicate with your customers.
