Mounting Pricing Guide

 

BACKING OPTIONS | 40x60 - 48x80
 

Pieces in this size range can be mounted to just about any material, with the exception of ply rag, which cannot be used for images with a width of 100" or more. 

  • 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 | 40x60 - 48x60
 

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. Wider hangers are available; please call for a quote. 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.

We also offer z-clips for pieces up to 48x60, as a cost-effective alternative to our custom hanging systems. Pieces installed with z-clips will be flush to the wall, and will not create the same float effect as our aluminum hangers. They will offer reliable security for small and moderately-sized works, however. Our z-clips are priced at $10/ft
