The Benefits of Mounting a Photograph

Posted by Jaime O'Brien on Friday, May 02, 2014



With all of the technology at our fingertips allowing us to take photos quickly and easily we tend to forget what to do with our photos. Mounting and laminating your photographs offers protection from moisture, wind and airborne pollutants. There are a multitude of options when it comes to mounting. You can use a traditional mount on a paper substrate, foam core board, hardboard or a wall mount. All of which are unique in their own way.

Mounting photographs provides protection from bending and marking. You can professionally enlarge your photos and display them using mounts. By choosing a wall mount, you can opt for a different color border around the edge to provide a contemporary look to your home or office. Wall mounts are lightweight and strong foam core boards that have pre-drilled  holes in the back for easy hanging. 

Or if you are worried about moisture affecting your print, then opt for styrene. Styrene is made of synthetic fibers and are less effected by temperature and humidity changes. Picture mounting is beautiful and can serve two purposes, preserving your photographs and adding style to your pictures.
