Mounted prints are prints that are adhered to a solid backing. Instead of a flimsy paper portrait, you have a portrait that holds it’s form. Mounting your prints helps to protect them from bending and marking and keeps your images safer longer.

There are many different types of materials used to mount your images. One is the commonly used foam core board, another is the styrene board, and lastly, matboard.
At CWP, we use matboard for our gift prints (anything 8×10 and smaller), so they are sturdy, yet still slim enough to fit into frames. For prints larger than 8×10, we mount them on styrene, which is a thin plastic and allows the prints more ridigity.
Getting your prints mounted not only protects them better, but it also can create a few new options for you to display them. Because your print will now stand alone, you can display your print without a frame.   One easy look is to set the mounted print on a shelf leaning against the wall without a frame. Another more gallery style look is to attach a small block behind the mounted print and hang it to your wall. The block pushes the print out so that it now looks like it is suspended just in front of the wall. You can also hang the print frameless directly to the wall using Command wall strips.
All of our prints are printed on Fuji Crystal Archive Professional Deep Matte Paper. This is a true non-reflective matte with warm whites and a super smooth finish. It’s unique lusterless surface provides elegant color reproduction with subtlety and warmth. It really is gorgeous and needs to be seen and touched to really appreciate it!

Next time you get photos taken- don’t forget to get them printed! Don’t let those portraits sit in a box or on your computer!
