A number of mounting types are available for our finished prints, and are described in the following section.
Available Print Styles
Unmatted - The PhotoArt prints we offer in this category come unmounted.
Gatorboard - The Gatorboard mounted prints are mounted using pressure sensitive materials. Gator Foamboard is very rigid foamboard and lightweight backing with a matte black finish. It is durable and will not warp. An optional mounting block for the Gator Foamboard that is a 1/2" spacer, which can be attached to the back of the Gatorfoam Mounted print, allowing the image to be hung so it appears to float from the wall, is included.
Standout Mount - Another style of print we offer, is the Standout Mount. The print is mounted on a Standout Mount, adding a new dimension to your picture display. Prints are mounted on a thick black lightweight backing that gives a contemporary, finished look to unframed images. Holes are included on the back of the mounts for easy hanging.
Giclée - Giclée canvas gallery wrap prints are a stylish, low-cost alternative to traditional framing techniques. Photos are printed directly onto canvas using high quality archival inks. The canvas print is then wrapped around a stretcher frame so that 1¾” of the photo’s edges are visible on the sides of the frame. A finishing spray is applied to each piece to protect the surface of the print. Delivered display-ready with hanging hardware attached.
Canvas Gallery Wraps - For the same low price as the Giclée canvas gallery wrap prints, we also offer Canvas Gallery Wraps, which is another stylish low-cost alternative to traditional framing methods. With this contemporary mounting option, the image is printed on Kodak Endura silver based photo paper. The print is then bonded with high pressure and heat onto oversized museum quality canvas. The resulting canvas print is then wrapped around a stretcher frame so that 1-3/4" of the photo's edges are visible on the sides of the frame. Delivered display-ready with hanging hardware attached.
Metal Prints - For yet another unparalleled image experience, we offer our images on Single Metal Print media and Double Float Metal Print media. Metal Prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Double Float Metal Prints are unique products where a Metal Print is floated 3/8" off the surface of a second larger Metal Print creating a contemporary "framing" effect. The high gloss coating takes on an almost magical luminescence. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, the archival qualities of this unique process are unparalleled. Images printed with the Metal Prints process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, Metal Prints should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures. Metal Prints have an additional benefit over gicleé or photographic processes in that they are waterproof and have an ultra-hard scratch resistant coating. The archival value of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, Metal Prints are an excellent way to preserve an image. A float mount block for hanging the Single Metal Print picture is included. The Double Float Metal Print has mounting holes to hang the picture with.
Hand Signed - A special series of hand signed and numbered [1 to 100] 8x10 inch high quality competition prints, is available as a special option on some of the pictures. The pictures in this Limited Edition special are mounted on strong and durable foamboard.
