Glossary #1: Face mounting

cfacry_2 cfacry_3

Acrylic Face mounting is the  process of mounting a photographic C-Type print

to the back of 3mm or 6mm optical grade acrylic.

The acrylic is then backed with a Dibond and an aluminium hanging system is attached for support.


Face mounting is utilised for exhibition quality display that allows for a contemporary frame less

display option.  The technique also offers up to 98% UV protection for your prints.


Face mounted photographs have a vibrance and gloss which is unparalleled.

Our face mounts are exhibition quality and are displayed in many galleries

around the country as well as within both corporate and home environments.


If you are interested in the technique, give us a call and book in an appointment to discuss
