WHAT IS BLOCK MOUNTING SYDNEY?
Block mounting is a process of mounting or sticking any print, digital artwork or poster to a solid backing board allowing your artwork to hang with a frame-free finish. Block mounting Sydney is an affordable alternative to framing your picture. Posters, digital files can be block mounted on several mediums including composite, foam core or go for the spectacular acrylic wall mount or blocks.
IS BLOCK MOUNTING GOING TO WORK FOR YOU AND YOUR BUDGET
Frame-free finish appeals to your style or is working on a tight budget; block mounting may be for you. You can expect block mounting to be half the price of picture framing, possibly even more of a saving.
BLOCK MOUNTING IS PROBABLY NOT THE BEST OPTION FOR SOME ARTWORKS.
If you have a high-value artwork (monetary or intrinsic value) or your artwork is impossible to replace, then block mounting may not be suitable. High value or original art should only by framed with conservation framing in mind. Any non-conservation framing or Block Mounting Sydney will destroy the value of your artwork immediately, and some methods will lead to deterioration over time. Acrylic will stand the test of time, but the artwork cannot be removed from the acrylic mount.
HOW LONG DO I WANT THIS ON MY WALL?
For a business or home where you only wish to display your block mounted poster or print for a short time frame, then block mounting is perfect. However, a good quality block mount on acrylic will not only be cost-effective but will also last for many many years.
WHAT ARE MY BLOCK MOUNTING OPTIONS?
So, you’ve decided that block mounting is ideal, but what style of block mount Sydney? Composite is a robust option. Furthermore, the finish is smooth because the boards are super flat; the poster or artwork is mounted on the flat surface. The edges are cut to the exact size of the artwork then it gets a laminate seal over the artwork for protection.
Foam board – this foam board, or foam core as framers call it, is available in various thicknesses. Framers often use 3mm or 5mm thick foam core. Foam core is very lightweight but tends to bow – and who wants their favourite poster or print hung with a curve along with it? It’s a great temporary inexpensive way to mount the artwork. Acrylic mounting is crystal clear and custom cut and the best option for longevity. This process is when the digital image print adheres to the acrylic called Face mounting. The process works best with a smooth gloss print – not all posters and paper textures can adhere to acrylic.
