Mounting an artwork, like a poster, is the perfect process to prevent it from bubbling or waving in the frame. There are many techniques in the mounting services including ones for archival materials.
• Tape or Spray Mounting is not a permanent process and the artwork can be easily removed. • Dry Mounting: this is a Permanent - cannot remove artwork later. A sensitive adhesive film is activated by a heat press machine and used to permanently attach a work to a substrate, typically foam core. Please be advised that an Artwork of a great value should not be dry-mounted since it can greatly affect any resale value. Our experienced designers are at your disposal for any questions on preservation and conservation techniques. • Form Mounting – This is for artworks that are already mounted to a board which is cut to the exact size of the artwork. The piece is usually meant to be matted with one or more mats.
• Acid-Free framing tape. Your artwork can be mounted onto an Acid-Free foam board or mat. Only Acid-Free tape is used in this process. • Corner framing "pockets" & "Art Saver" strips. • Museum Conservation Hinging - the ultimate protection. • Stretching, Lacing and Sewing Fabric : These are other archival mounting techniques that are preferably used for items such as flags or jerseys. They are stretched and attached to an Acid-Free mat or foam board with needles. This allows a precise placement of your item and is completely reversible.
