Aluminium Mounting Overview

Aluminium mounting is a process of mounting a photographic print onto an aluminium sheet. Photographic prints are mounted to a 2mm thick aluminium sheet and precision-cut to the exact size of the print before the edges are polished.

Advantages of Aluminium Mounting

Aluminium mounting gives photographic prints a sleek, contemporary feel. The material is exceptionally rigid, flat and hard-wearing and offers prints a discreet, polished silhouette. Mounting prints to aluminium is especially popular with those who want a simple, frameless finish. 

We can produce Aluminium mounts up to 2997 x 1219mm (118 x 48 inches).

An Aluminium sub-frame is added to each completed piece – making it easy to hang and providing additional rigidity and support against warping. This sub-frame also provides a visible space between the mounted work and the wall, giving your photographs or artwork a 3-dimensional ‘floating’ presence.

Why Choose Genesis for Aluminium Mounting?

With in-house production capabilities, we craft Aluminium mounts in our on-site mounting department. If you also print with us, this eliminates the need to coordinate with multiple suppliers, ensuring a streamlined and efficient process from start to finish. 

We also extend a 100% satisfaction guarantee to all of our services, pledging to either redo or refund should the outcome not fully meet your expectations.
