What mounting and texture options are offered through ProDPI?


Mounting Options

ProDPI currently offers 8 types of mounting for Photographic prints. 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. All mounting substrates are undersized and you can find specifics on each of them below. 
 

Matboard Mounting: Matboard Mounting is available for photographic and fine art prints in sizes up to 16x20. It is a thin white fiber based material and is great for mounting on smaller prints. The boards are about 1/16" thin and will be approximately 1/8" undersized. Matboard is not recommended for environments with drastic or frequent changes in humidity.
 

White Foam Mounting: White Foam Mounting is available for prints in sizes up to 30x50. It is a lightweight white foam board with a white backing and is great for any size print but is especially recommended for prints that will be framed. The white foam is 3/16" thick and will be approximately 1/8" undersized. 
 

Black Foam Mounting: Black Foam Mounting is available for prints in sizes up to 30x50. It is a lightweight but dense black foamboard with a shiny black finish on the back and is especially recommended for larger print sizes. It is very durable and will not be affected by changes in humidity. The black foam is 3/16" thick and will be approximately 1/8" undersized. 
 

Black and White Styrene: Black and White Styrene Mounting is available with photographic and fine art prints in sizes up to 30x40. Styrene is a dense plastic substrate and can be fairly heavy in larger sizes. For very large sizes it is recommended most for prints that will be framed or displayed on easels or shelves, but it is great for any use on smaller sizes. It can sway slightly in very large sizes due to weight but is extremely durable. Styrene is 3/32" and will be approximately 1/8" undersized. 
 

Black and White 3/4" Standout Mounting: Black and White 3/4" Standout Mounting is available with prints in various standard sizes. Standout boards are made of 3/4" thick but lightweight foam have a black or white finished edge. Prints are mounted flush with the edge of the standout and are great for a 'ready to hang' option. Each board has holes pre punched in the back for easy placement on the wall and can be hung using a nail or pushpin depending on the size. 3/4" Standout Mounting is approximately 1/4" undersized.
 

Black 1.5" Standout Mounting: Black 1.5" Standout Mounting is available with prints in a handful of standard sizes. Standout boards are made of 1.5"" thick but lightweight foam have a black finished edge. Prints are mounted flush with the edge of the standout and are great for a 'ready to hang' option. 1.5" Standout Mounting is approximately 1/2" undersized.
