Canvas Stretching

Your canvas can be stretched to any custom size.

We make use of both a 23 and 50 mm canvas stretcher bar to suit your style and size.

The canvas is carefully stretched over a solid wood stretcher bar to ensure a tightly spun finish with neat folded corners. Your canvas is ready-to-hang once complete.

Block Mount

The supplied print is pasted, using cold glue, to a 22mm mdf subframe and backing board.

The edges are finished in white or black to suit your image. The finished product is ready-to-hang and is a great minimalist addition to any space.

Window Mount

A window is cut out of mount board, in your chosen colour, and then hinged to the back of the board. Traditionally, a second board is then used to protect the artwork from the back.

The window size and border size are chosen for aesthetic reasons and vary according to personal preference.

This method will crop the image slightly and therefore it is not ideal for artwork where the signatures are on the edge or if you don't wish to crop.

Archival Mounting

Mount to Dibond®

Dibond® is the most commonly used mounting substrate, worldwide.

Its resistance to bowing makes it an excellent exhibition mounting material and its lightweight nature is perfect for large pieces, touring exhibitions or when weight is a concern.

Half the weight of aluminium, Dibond® is a rigid, durable, aluminium-composite material consisting of two pre-painted sheets of 3 mm aluminium bonded to a solid plastic core.

It is an excellent replacement for aluminium, MDF (medium-density fibreboard), plywood, thick gauge plastics and some laminated fluted/solid core sheets.

Pasting | Select your Substrate

Triplex

The artwork is pasted, using cold glue and a vacuum press, to triplex board. The maximum size for this is 800 x 1200 mm.

  • Non-Archival

Hardboard

The artwork is pasted, using cold glue and a vacuum press, to 3 mm thick medium density fibreboard (MDF). The maximum size for this is 2750 x 1850 mm.

  • Non-Archival

Plexiglass

This method employs the use of a non-archival adhesive to bond the artwork to plexiglass. This ensures a smooth and even finish. The maximum size for this is 3000 x 2000 mmm.

  • Non-Archival

Dibond®

Dibond® is a rigid, durable, aluminium-composite material consisting of two pre-painted sheets of 3 mm aluminium bonded to a solid plastic core. The artwork is bonded to the Dibond® through an archival process and guarantees a completely flat image.

  • Max | 3000 x 2000 mm

Non-Permanent Mounting Options

Strapping

Small pieces of double-sided archival tape are placed at even spaces around the edge of the artwork. The artwork is then strapped to a backing board by pulling the adhesive tape around the back of the board and then adhering it once tight.

This method can be archival or non-archival depending on the backing board used.

This method means that the artwork will never be completely flat as it allows for organic movement as it responds to temperature fluctuations.

Hinging

The artwork is adhered to the back of a window mount board using small segments of archival tape. A backing board is then adhered to the back, along one edge, allowing the window mount to swing open for easy removal of the artwork.

This method can be archival or non-archival depending on the backing/mount board used. This method means that the artwork will never be completely flat as it allows for organic movement as it responds to temperature fluctuations.
