What is Perspex Face Mounting?
Perspex (Acrylic) Face Mounting, also known as Reverse Face Mounting is the process of mounting a photographic print between a sheet of Perspex and an Aluminium or Dibond backing sheet.
Prints are first bonded using optically clear silicone adhesive, creating an airtight bond with no air bubbles. Our face mounts are then cut using our precision cutter, our unique service means that we can produce face mounts in virtually any shape that you desire up to 2 997 x 1 828mm (118 x 72 inches).
Each completed piece is supplied with an aluminium sub-frame – making it easy to hang and providing additional rigidity and support against warping.
Why Should I Choose Perspex Face Mounting?
Perspex Face Mounting is a contemporary mounting solution that enhances the colour of your work and provides a flawless high-gloss finish. Perspex Face Mounting is a popular choice for those looking to present a finished piece without a frame. Because the print is sandwiched between the perspex and the back using a permanently elastic 100% clear silicone glue, perspex face mounting provides the additional benefit of no light reflections between the photographs and the glazing of an ordinary frame.
The aluminium subframe on the back of each perspex face mount provides a visible space between the mounted work and the wall – lending another presence to your photographs or artwork.
Perspex face mounting; exceptional quality, precise and contemporary finishing.
Direct to Perspex Printing:
We are also able to print your images or artwork direct to Perspex using our Direct to Media printing service. Printing direct to a substrate can often be quicker as it removes the need for a photographic print and is a popular choice for those looking to explore new creative possibilities. Perspex is just one of the hundreds of substrates we can print on to – find out more about our Direct to Media UV Printing here.

We aim to turnaround orders for our finishing services within 8 – 10 days. Large orders are often subject to slightly longer turnaround times, please speak to us to confirm turnaround times prior to placing your order.
Both Perspex and glass face mounting services provide exceptional finishing for photographs or artwork and use much the same process – the only real difference is the substrate chosen as the top layer of the finished piece.
Glass is less prone to scratching than Perspex although Perspex is a much more lightweight substrate and is available in a greater choice of sizes.
