Introducing: Substrate Print Mounting

dStudio, a UK Photographic & Fine Art Print Studio

Giclée prints mounted on Card, Foamboard, Foamex and Dibond

Substrate Mounting

Mounting your Fine Art and Photographic Prints is an ideal solution for display in exhibitions, as well as at home or in commercial/retail environments. We have four different substrates available, Card, Foamboard, Foamex and Dibond, each with its own characteristics and use cases. Your print will be fixed to your chosen substrate using a permanent adhesive film, optional wall fixings are available for each substrate to complete your mounted print.




Display Card

Our 2mm Display Card is an ultra smooth, rigid board, available in bespoke cut sizes to mount any print size up to 700 x 1000mm (28 x 40in). Display Card is our most affordable option for Substrate Mounting.

Velcro is the only option available for Display Card fixings, you can also opt for no fixings when placing your order.

Foam Board

Our 5mm White Foamboard, sometimes referred to as Foamcore, is a lightweight mounting option, giving you a thicker mount than Display Card at a much lighter weight, making it easy to transport and display. Foamboard is a delicate material though and can be damaged easily, so should be handled with care.

Either Velcro or Push In Hangers are available for Foamboard fixings, you can also opt for no fixings when placing your order.

PVC Foamex

Our 5mm Foamex is available in White or Black and is an overall upgrade to Foamboard. It is stronger and stiffer than Foamboard, but still light enough to make transport and display a simple option.

Velcro is the only option available for Foamed fixings, you can also opt for no fixings when placing your order.

Dibond

Our 3mm Dibond, or aluminium composite, is a made from a lightweight polyethylene core sandwiched by two sides of 0.3mm thin aluminium. This makes for a lightweight but very strong product that is a great option for permanent displays.

A White Wood Subframe with hanging plates is the only fixing option available for Dibond mounted prints, you can also opt for no fixings when placing your order.
