Large Format Printing

Mounting

Large Format Mounting

Bigger is better when it comes to large format prints used in commercial applications.  However, those large format prints often require mounting in order to make rigid enough for point of purchase and other applications.  Your large format posters, signs, and displays will have even greater impact when professionally mounted on a sturdy backing material. We offer complete in house mounting services for large format prints of any size.

The environment in which your large format prints will be displayed usually dictate what type of mounting substrate is most appropriate for your application. The most basic type of mounting is typically done on foamcore which is lightweight and inexpensive.  If the prints will be displayed outdoors or in other areas where they will be exposed to the elements, a synthetic or plastic such as gatorfoam or sintra should be specified.

 

Mounting Substrates

  • FoamCore (3/16″, 1/2″, 1″) Black or White
  • GatorFoam (3/16″, 1/2″, 1″) Black or White
  • Styrene
  • Sintra
  • Illustration board (24, 40, 60, and 80 pt)
  • Plexiglass
  • And much more

Once you’ve decided on the type of mounting that is appropriate for your large format prints the next question is how the mounted prints will be displayed. If your application calls for prints to hang from a wall or ceiling, grommets or can be inserted to provide an easy hanging solution. For freestanding displays a double-wing easel back can be applied to the back of the display. For many retail applications you may want to hang the large format prints from a suspended ceiling or other hardware.  Our mounting professional can recommend a hanging solution for just about any application.

Shipping and Packing Considerations – As you may imagine, shipping mounted, large-format products can be challenging. Shipping companies can be rough on odd/over sized packages.  Be sure to let us know how your large format prints will need to be packaged for shipping when you place your order.
