Dry Mount

“Dry Mount” is a process by which a paper or perhaps fabric piece is permanently adhered to a Fomecore or mat board substrate. It allows posters, prints, photos or paper products to be “ironing board” flat and prevents any wrinkling or “wash boarding” of pieces in a frame. Some already wrinkled pieces may be helped by the dry mount process, minimizing the damage. Dry mount is permanent so a consultation is warranted. There is also a process called a “plaque laminate” which, like dry mount is permanent but also has a membrane on the surface that acts like non-glare glass protecting the piece and is on a board which is much heavier and allows it to be hung as-is on the wall. For more information on plaques,  “View Laminating Ideas!Illustrated are some of the pieces we have done.
