Mounting Pricing Guide

BACKING OPTIONS | 48x72 - 60x84

 

Works in this size range can be mounted to most materials, with some limitations. The absence of a price value in the table below indicates that the backing material is not available at that size.  

  • 4-Ply & 8-Ply Rag: an acid-free museum board with moderate flexibility.

  • Gatorboard: a firm, paper-based foam core. Available in white, natural, or black, in thicknesses of 3/16" and 1/2". Other colors available by custom order; call for more details.

  • Sintra:  a durable PVC board, available in standard 3mm or 6mm.  Ideal for signage, but not considered archival.

  • Plexi: a clear acrylic with greater stability than Sintra, available in 1/8" and 1/4" thickness.  

  • Aluminum: highly stable metal sheets, available in standard .063 and .080 thickness.

  • Dibond: 3mm composite material consisting of two thin (.012”) sheets of aluminum sandwiched over an inert black polyethylene core.

FACE MOUNT OPTIONS | 48x72 - 60x84
 

To face mount an image, it must be backed on plexi, aluminum, or Dibond. Face-mounted images must also be printed on a glossy paper for optimal results. The paper finish does not affect the final look of the piece; rather, the face mount material determines whether the image will have a reflective or matte finish. The first two items in the table below are reflective; the bottom three are not.

HANGING SYSTEMS | 40x60 - 48x60
 

All aluminum hanging systems are custom-made in our lab and attached with an industrial adhesive. Images of this size require a 1" hanging system at minimum for stability. Unfortunately, we cannot attach hanging systems to prints that have been mounted on Gatorboard, ply rag, or Sintra. The print must be mounted to aluminum, plexi, or Dibond.

Wider hangers are available; please call for a quote.
