Dry mounting is the most common type of mounting we do. For this type of mount, we use special presses (both vacuum and roller) to adhere your print onto a rigid or semi-rigid backing board.
We use several types of backing boards with different qualities including thickness, weight, dimensional stability, puncture-resistance and cost.
Each material is a quality choice for what it does, and we avoid materials that negatively impact your prints, such as through a chemical reaction to acids or glues.
A key consideration is that once we mount your print using a dry mount process, it would no longer be considered “archival” under the strictest sense. Please see our archival options below if you require a fully reversible archival option.
