Photo Mounts | frameless prints...

These are unique options for alternative displays of my nature photographs versus the traditional mat and frame. The obvious advantage is no need for additional matting, framing and glass, which can be expensive well beyond the cost of the print itself. These types of mounts also open up endless options for murals or displays of a group of images together. All of these options also come ready to hang - right out of the box.

 

Similar to my canvas offerings, I consider them to be quite "style neutral," in that they will blend well with any decor with a clean, modern, gallery-like quality. I have been adopting frameless methods of display in my own home as they are easy to care for, offer great impact and a clean, simple appearance that really places the emphasis on the photograph.

Nature prints on bamboo photo mount

 

I am quite excited to start offering these types of mounts in 2013. This mounting option takes advantage of sustainably grown and harvested bamboo to create a very elegant, attractive way to mount a photograph. The special layered edge finish creates a very distinctive look. I think it is very fitting to have a sustainable presentation method for photographs that celebrate the beauty of nature.

 

prints mounted on woodThe process involves a photographic print that is mounted on a frame that is a layered construction of bamboo plywood using transparent PH neutral adhesive film. I will typically use a Lustre finish for the print itself as I think this finish creates the perfect balance between sharpness, vibrance, and reduction of glare and reflection. Other print finishes are available upon special request at the time of order.

 

To order, simply choose the bamboo mount option from an image in my gallery. I offer sizes of 8x12 (at 1.5" thick), 16x24 through 24x36 (at 3/4" thick). Larger sizes may be available depending on the image and panoramic images may be available - please inquire.

framing alternatives for nature photographsColorBox Mounts involve dry mounting the photographic print to a medium density fiberboard (MDF), which is then permanently sealed with a matte finish laminate. This laminate filters out 80% of UV light to help resist fading and offers protection of the photograph from damage, water, and fingerprints. The final box thickness is 1 inch. A touch of style comes in with the beveled edge. This is what really sets these apart from many other types of similar box or gatorfoam mounts. It is a small attention to detail that creates a professional finished look, resulting in a non-glare, easy to clean, modern display of art that is ready to hang and enjoy.

 

With the lack of glass, this type of display makes it nicely suited for high traffic environments, office environments, health care centers, and many other interior design projects. The finish is matte in appearance, making it ideally suited for images such as black and white, abstracts, and muted landscapes.

 

The recycled wood MDF fiberboard is FSC and CARB certified so that sustainability is considered. The sides of the fiberboard and color of the bevel are available in 18 different finishes(shown below). If you order from the gallery, please send me an email with your preference for finish. Sizes available are 16x24 in., 20x30 in., and 24x36 in. Larger sizes may be available, please inquire.

 

Please allow 4-6 weeks delivery time on all ColorBox orders.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Colorbox mounts have been removed from my standard gallery options, and are available upon request.

facemount acrylic nature pictures

 

Facemount Acrylic photo mount is a high impact, vibrant display alternative to standard framing. A high gloss photographic print is sandwiched between a crystal clear 1/8" acrylic panel and a 1/8" dibond backing board. An aluminum subframe is then mounted to the back to position the piece to appear as if it is "floating" off the wall. This creates a piece of artwork that has an extraordinary depth, clarity, and sharpness. Apply some spot gallery lighting to a piece like this and it will receive quite a few "Wow!"s. Sizes available are 16x24 in., 20x30 in., and 24x36 in. Larger may be available, please inquire. Click the thumbnails below for closer views.

 

Please allow 4-6 weeks delivery time on all Fracemount Acrylic orders.
