Framing & Mounting options

FRAMING OPTIONS


Whether you’re looking to protect, preserve or enhance your images, our diverse range of mounting & framing services offers a wide range of exceptional quality solutions – all produced by a skilled, professional team. Most framing options can be accommodated. Our most popular options are listed below but we are happy to provide bespoke and custom alternatives. Simply contact 2DAYDREAM photography (or Nick Perry) to discuss your requirements.


What is Aluminium Mounting?
Aluminium Mounting is a popular choice that gives 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.


    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. Face mounts are then cut using a precision cutter. We can produce face mounts in virtually any shape that you desire up to 2997 x 1828mm (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 print 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.


What is Tray Framing?
Tray framing offers a glassless, contemporary framing solution that achieves a 3d, ‘floating’ effect for your images or artwork. Your images are firstly mounted to Dibond – a lightweight aluminium composite known for its rigidity – which adds protection to the print and provides a firm base for framing. A smaller sub-frame is then attached to the reverse of the mounted print, providing space between the back of the frame and the print. The artwork is set back slightly from the edge of the frame to prevent damage and there is space left on all sides of the mounted print within the frame to achieve the ‘floating’ effect. Appropriate fixings are then attached to the back of the tray frame so that your work is ready to hang.

Why Should I Choose Tray Frames?
Without glass, tray frames are more lightweight than traditional framing options and reflections on artwork are minimised – allowing your work to be seen in all of its glory. Our range of exhibition quality mouldings makes any of our framing options flexible and adaptable to your requirements.



    What is Spacer Framing
    ‘Spacer’ or ‘box’ framing uses a ‘fillet’, or ‘spacer’ which runs alongside the inner edge of the frame and provides a separation between your artwork and the glass of the frame.

    Why should I choose Spacer Framing?
    Alongside the contemporary aesthetic achieved with spacer framing, the separation between your artwork and the glass of the frame also aids in preventing damage to your prints caused by condensation (which can result in water damage, mould, mildew or the deterioration of the surface of the image). Once your frame is complete, appropriate fixings are then attached to the back of your frame so that your work is ready to hang.
