Mounting and Finishing

We have five choices of substrate to mount your pictures including 1/8″ Styrene in white, 1/8″ hardboard and 3/16″ GatorFoam. By special order we also have 1/2″ and 3/4″ GatorFoam available. Your final application will dictate the best mounting substrate for your image.

When framing your picture we recommend white styrene or masonite. When framing is not used, GatorFoam is your best option. We can install a hanging loop into the back of the GatorFoam to help you create a great looking, unframed image for your wall.

Protective Coatings. We recommend most prints 8×10 and larger be coated with a protective photo laquer. We have matte, luster and protexture available. These coatings help protect the surface of the print from fingerprints and dust. If the print becomes soiled it can be cleaned with a damp cloth. The sprays also contain some UV protection. Matte spray slightly dulls the surface of the print to give it a soft look that is easy to view. Luster retains the original surface look of luster paper but provides the laquer protection. Protexture adds a simulated leather look to give the print a high-end, professional looking surface.
