Dog wall art gallery hanging in matted frames

Ready-to-Hang & Frame Friendly Mounting

We offer two ready to hang mounting options that do not require frames, but these methods may be paired with a floating frame system. All of our mounting methods utilize the same high quality photo paper as our unmounted prints. While quite expensive to produce and ship, it should be noted that both acrylic and dibond mounting methods often provide a significant savings over the cost of custom framing in larger sizes, especially when compared to frames and mattings that provide similar protection against UV radiation, scratches, shattering or other archival concerns, like PH or moisture.

  • Dibond Mounting (Ready-to-Hang):  Print cost + 100%
    • Dibond is a modern, clean looking semi durable back mounted ready-to-hang solution. The material consists of a styrene core sandwiched between two thin sheets of aluminum. Its rigidity and light weight make it a great option for very large pieces. The print is mounted to the dibond and protected with a satin laminate providing a softer matte finish that is excellent at preventing and hiding minor scratches and fingerprints, and may be gently wiped clean with a microfiber cloth. They arrive ready-to-hang with a pleasant looking wooden block and wire hanging system mounted to the back.
  • Acrylic Mounting (Ready-to-Hang): Print cost + 200%
    • Our most durable mounting option, our standard 1/8" thick acrylic front facing mounting option offers an incredibly modern and brilliant display that no other presentation can match. Unlike traditional glass, where light simply passes through, the light refracts within the acrylic layer creating tremendous vibrancy when paired with metallic paper and overhead lighting. These prints are exceptionally durable and great for high traffic or high humidity areas, like kitchens, foyers and lobbies. They arrive ready-to-hang with a pleasant looking wooden block and wire hanging system mounted to the back.
  • Acrylic Mounting + Thickness Upgrade (Ready-to-Hang): Print cost + 300%
    • Strongly recommended for all acrylic mounted prints 20" x 30" and larger. This mounting option increases the thickness of the front mounted transparent layer by 4x. A half inch of clear acrylic allows prints to achieve maximum depth and radically improve the material's refraction properties. Please note that due to the increased weight of these prints, they require a more secure aluminum French cleat hanging system.
    • The acrylic thickness upgrade includes a complimentary diamond buffed edge polish to ensure maximum side viewing clarity and internal light refraction, as well as a 2oz bottle of Brillianize and microfiber cloth for cleaning and polishing.
