FACE MOUNT OPTIONS | 8x10 - 40x50

 

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 piece will have a reflective or matte finish. The first two items in the table below are reflective; the bottom three are not.

HANGING SYSTEMS | 8x10 - 40x50
 

All aluminum hanging systems are custom-made in our lab and attached with an industrial adhesive. The width of the hanging system will determine how far the piece will float off the wall once installed. Larger pieces require wider hangers for adequate support. 

Unfortunately, we cannot attach hanging systems to prints that have been mounted on Gatorboard, ply mat, or Sintra. The print must be mounted to aluminum, plexi, or Dibond. 

We also offer z-clips 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
