Mounting your Family Photos

April 16, 2015 | by Dan Lalonde Comments

If you haven’t ever ordered a mounted print, you may want to consider it with your next investment. Mounted prints are prints that are adhered to a solid backing. Instead of a flimsy paper portrait, you have a portrait that holds it’s form. Mounting your prints helps to protect them from bending and marking and keeps your images safer longer.

Mounting Your Prints

The most commonly used is masonite backing. Getting your prints mounted not only protects them better, but it also can create a few new options for you to display them. Because your print will now stand alone, you can display your print with a frame or set the mounted print on a shelf leaning against the wall without a frame.

Another more gallery style look is to attach a small block behind the mounted print and hang it to your wall. The block pushes the print out so that it now looks like it is suspended just in front of the wall. You can also hang the print framelesss directly to the wall using Command wall strips.

Next time your order prints, consider getting them mounted, you’ll be glad you did!

I hope these tips were useful for you. I would love to capture your family heirloom so you can hang those precious memories in a special place in your home.
