Mounting Art Work
Mounting consists of mounting
a photograph or art work to a mount board into which an opening the size
of the photograph or
art work has been cut.The photograph or art work is attached to the back
of the mount with framing tape.Mounting a photograph or art work provides
several main benefits First, it insures that the photograph or art work
will not touch the glass once it is framed - the mount board acts as a
spacer between he photograph or art
work and the glass.Second, once the photograph or art work is framed and
displayed mounting helps separate the photograph or art work from its
surroundings. It gives it its
own unique space and presence.
We use a Trucut
Excel Computerized Mount Cutter for all our mount cutting so you can
be assured that the quality of the mounts you receive are of top quality
and precision. Our standard mount board we use is Daler Rowney mount board
whitecore.We manufacture mounts of all different designs from simple openings
to double mounts with many openings. We can cut small openings in mounts
to accommodate a name or a date and if you word it for us we will be happy
to print and place it for you.
A V-groove can be a very nice feature in a mount to make it stand out
and double or triple mounts when combined together can give your art work
or photographs that special touch and using multiple openings in a mount
we can design a collage for your photographs which is very effective There
is a growing demand for that unusual gift like children's names cut into
mount board with photographs of the children placed behind then
If you require a custom size opening or specific outer dimension to your
mount- we can help. Mount info
Dry mounting, also called heat
mounting, is a very popular method. Dry mounting is fast and clean, and
items when properly mounted, will remain
wrinkle and bubble free. It is typically
used for items such as posters and low cost replaceable prints.
The process requires either a mechanical press
or a vacuum heat press. Vacuum Press A vacuum
press uses heat and suction to create the bond between print and mounting
board and removes moisture,
which causes bubbles. Mounting in a vacuum press is limited to the size
of the press. Mechanical Press A mechanical press is not limited in
size. It does however require more labor.
The print and board must be dried in the press before mounting.
When is mounting recommended
Mounting is recommended for posters and
low cost replaceable prints. Artwork on fabric can also be mounted. Mounting
is usually permanent. Even if the adhesive
is labeled "removable" use caution. Such adhesives often require
chemical solvents to reverse the process. These solvents can leave stains
and permanently damage an item.When is mounting
not recommended? Mounting is not recommended for limited editions, signed
and numbered prints,or original artwork.
Even removable adhesive can leave residue
on a print, and will drastically alter the value of the piece.
We use 2 mm picture frame glass
(float glass) this can be clear glass or defused (non reflective) glassWhen
framing an oil painting grass or a mountis
not necessary Unlike pastel, watercolors or photographs and other media
of thatNature glass is required and in most cases a mount also.
