Foamcore is the least expensive backing material. It is smooth and lightweight. Not suitable for long term displays because foamcore is susceptible to moisture and can bend or curl. Excellent in frames.
Gator Foam is excellent for long-term indoor applications. Gator Foam is more rigid than Foamcore, higher tolerance to moisture. Excellent for aluminum, wooded and composite frames.
Sintra Board is excellent for long-term indoor/outdoor applications. It is a lightweight yet rigid board of moderately expanded closed-cell polyvinyl chloride (PVC) extruded in a homogenous sheet with a low gloss matte finish. Superior dent and scratch resistance. Available in 3mm(1/8") and 6mm(1/4") thicknesses.
Acrylic Face Mounting
Making Your Image "POP"
Our design team has years of experience in plexiglass framing. We adhere your print to a Plexiglas® surface using a special adhesive that does not corrode or yellow your image, providing an airtight seal. Plexi framing creates added dimension to an image and protects against scratches, dirt and aging.
Our plexiglass framing includes wood or aluminum braces adhered to the back of the mounts for hanging, giving you a "floating" presentation to display your images.
Acrylic Face Mounting involves adhering the front side of a photograph to the back of a sheet of acrylic, so any light reflections between the photograph and the glazing of an ordinary frame is eliminated. As a result, color appears sharper, brilliant, and more intense.
