What is Aluminium Mounting?
Aluminium mounting is a popular choice for photographers or artists looking to give their work a sleek, contemporary finish. Photographic prints are mounted to a 2mm thick aluminium sheet, precision cut to the exact size of your print before the edges are polished. Although mounting on aluminium is perfect for achieving a contemporary frameless finish, we are also able to finish aluminium mounted prints with your choice of bespoke frame – giving you an outstanding image with superior rigidity and protection. We can produce Aluminium mounts in sizes up to 2 997 x 1 219mm (118 x 48 inches).
Why Should I choose 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 wanting to achieve a simple, frameless finish. Each completed piece is supplied with an Aluminium sub-frame – 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 a 3 dimensional ‘floating’ presence to your photographs or artwork.
ChromaLuxe Fine Art Printing:
We are also able to produce images direct to aluminium using our ChromaLuxe Fine Art printing service; a new innovation for 2014.
Our ChromaLuxe Fine Art Printing service uses a process called ‘dye sublimation’ to produce images or artwork on slimline aluminium with either a high gloss or matte finish. Not only does producing prints to aluminium in this way save significant time, but the process renders the prints with an intense depth that is comparable to that of traditional Cibachrome prints. Alongside this, prints produced in this way are also water, fire, chemical and abrasion resistant and exclusive in London to Genesis Imaging. Find out more…
