Gallery Mount Prints
Gallery Mount prints are one of the least expensive ways (short of thumbtacks) of displaying artwork on a wall. Prints are mounted to a thin wood frame... no mat, glass, or custom framing saves on costs.
How They're Made
The board upon which the print is mounted can be either black PVC or wood. PVC is slightly less expensive. Wood can be painted in many colors. The material is typically 1/4 to 3/8" thick with a beveled edge.
The photograph is protected with a choice of hi-gloss or matte laminates. Matte does a wonderful job of minimizing reflections. There's also a dry-erase laminate.
Wood cleats for hanging the photograph are suggested for larger pieces. A wood keyhole mount or hanging wire is available for smaller pieces.
Minimizing Glare and Reflections
Possibly the biggest problem with decorative wall art is the light from windows which causes incredibly distracting reflections on glass. However, there are solutions. These two of my abstract photographs were laminated with a clear matte finish film which virtually eliminates reflections. It also protects from harmful UV light which causes a print to fade over time. There are specific grades of glass and acrylic which accomplish the same thing.
