| Plaque Mounting FAQs:
Q1 : What is plaque mounting?
Plaque mounting is the process by which your artwork (poster, print, photo, etc.) is laminated onto medium-density fiberboard, or MDF. The edges are then bevelled and painted with a colour of your choice.
Q2 : How do I mount my Plaque Mount to the wall?
Please mount it using a suitable size, flat head nail, screw, or picture hanger.
Q3 : How are plaque mountings done?
Your product will be mounted to MDF/wood and heat pressed. A special UV protective vinyl is laminated over the print and heat-pressed with 90 tons of pressure. The edges are then finished with your choice of color or pattern.
Q4 : Why should I choose plaque mounting over conventional picture framing?
Plaque mounting is a more affordable alternative to picture framing. Because, unlike picture framing, there is no glass involved, plaques are safe for use in kids' rooms and other high-activity areas. They also have an easy-to-clean surface.
