Dry mounting

theprintspace delivers high quality standard dry mounting services for your professional artwork, to all art practices. 

Dry mounting with archival materials is a technique that uses two products to ensure the print is uniformly flat ensuring its stability over time.

Dry mounting example

Dry mounting consists of the mount board, otherwise known as the substrate and the adhesive used to stick the print flat to the board.

Archival dry mounting refers to the longevity of finished mounted artwork to ensure it doesn’t degrade and will last over a significant duration of time. However it must be considered that dry mounting is an irreversible process and artwork cannot be removed from the mount board.

Therefore it is not advisable for one off original artwork or highly valuable prints and not a truly archival mounting process.

The quality of the materials used in the mounting process has a major bearing on the archival properties of the final mounted artwork. At theprintspace we only use a pH Neutral adhesive mount film.
