What Is A Plaquemount?
Plaquemounting is a process in which a piece of artwork is adhered permanently to a sheet of half-inch medium density fiber board (MDF) which is then laminated. Edges are bevelled with a choice of colored finishes. Plaquemounting is a great and cost effective alternative to framing and glass. Plaquemounting can come with a variety of different finishes including: hot press (matte), high gloss, and Canvax.
What Is A Masomount?
A Masomount is a print or poster that has been adhered to a 1/8” thick piece of masonite with bevelled edges which is then laminated using your choice of finish. This is then normally adhered to a half-inch MDF board. This method is very useful when incorporating mats into your mounting, ask one of our framers about Masomounts to determine if it will enhance your art.
What Is A Floatmount?
A Floatmount is a Masomount that has a wooden brace behind it to create a “floated” look. Once hung the Floatmount will be spaced approximately an inch away from the wall creating the illusion of your art “floating” off the wall.
(This particular style of mounting can ONLY have a black edging.)
What Is A Flushmount?
A Flushmount is similar to a Floatmount. Instead of being centered on the back of the Masomount, the back brace is flush with the edge of the board creating a thicker edge that is wider than a Plaquemount.
