Professional Aluminium Mounting


Although mounting to card was common for framing photographs for some hundred years, other modern materials such as aluminium and Dibond have become popular in recent years for their rigid, frameless sheer look and feel. Aluminium mounting is widely popular due to its neutral ph levels and clean silver edge.

Dibond® is an composite display material comprising two sheets of archival quality thin aluminium with a thermoplastic core. It is valued for its lightweight rigidity, being only one third of the weight of solid aluminium. Dibond typically comes with a white coating, to give the reverse of your pictures a smooth, clean look.

Direct to Aluminium Printing


If you are after a contemporary finish to your image,  direct to aluminium printing is the ideal media for you. Your image can be printed directly to the aluminium, without the need of a photographic print, which gives a metallic after effect to your work. If you prefer a smoother finish, we can print onto the aluminium in white first, then place your image over the top. It's also safe to be mounted and displayed outside, giving you numerous options for your work.
