What mounting and texture options are offered through Bay Photo?


Mounting Options

Bay Photo currently offers 8 types of mounting for photographic print order through ShootProof. Print mounting is a process where photographic prints are mounted to a substrate (matboard, styrene, foam, etc.) to enhance the presentation of the print and increase durability. 

2mm Styrene Mounting (White or Black) - super smooth plastic mounting substrate that is known for its durability, rigidity and strength.

Gatorfoam Mounting - a very rigid foam board and lightweight backing with a matte black finish. 

Bevel Mounting (Black Gold, or Silver) - bevel mount heavy weight board is substantial enough to stand on its own, making it perfect for gift giving or displaying on an easel. Bevel Mount prints are also suitable for framing.

Masonite Mounting - a heavy duty, rigid and durable mounting material. This high-end material is very rigid and adds weight to your presentation for a finished product with long-lasting durability.

Canvas Board Mounting - made with a print on Professional Photo Paper bonded onto museum quality canvas, or a Giclée Fine Art Print printed directly onto canvas material. The print is then mounted on Gator Foamboard, which is very rigid foamboard and lightweight backing. It is durable and will not warp. 

Stretched Canvas Mounting - can be made from prints on Professional Photo Papers bonded onto museum quality canvas, or Giclée Fine Art Prints printed directly onto the canvas material. The resulting prints are then stretched and stapled onto a wood artists stretcher bar frame, suitable for framing or displaying as-is.

2/3" or 1-1/2" Standout Mounting (Black, Brushed Stainless, Maple, or White) - backing available with you color selection of finished edges that gives a contemporary look to unframed images. 

3/4" Bamboo Standout Mounting - prints are mounted on a sustainably harvested solid Bamboo panel.


Texture Options

Canvas, Pebble, and Linen textures can be applied to the surface of prints for added effect. Surface textures add copyright protection as well as a professional touch to your photographic prints.
