Mounting a Phoro

Postby Justintime » Fri May 25, 2018 11:30 pm

So I have a photo, customer wants it mounted flush to the frame, no window mount.
So I drive a 70 min roundtrip to get it hotpress mounted, locally(!), only to find when I get back home that it's not adhered at all.
When I manage to get it laminated correctly, I was thinking to double side some black core around the 20mm over and cut the frame to fit the black core surround.
Am I right?

So that the black core is under the rebate obviously.
Sorry about the typo in the title.. :giggle:

A bit of clarification on terminology. 'Laminated' to me means as well as sticking it to a board, a surface film is also
hot-bonded to it. Sometimes textured.

If you are just dry-mounting it, the simplest way is to do it on a board slightly bigger than the image. Make the frame so that
the sight size (not the rebate size) is ever-so-slighty smaller than the image. Trim the board so the photo sits nicely in the frame
with no edges of the photo showing.
A few narrow strips of mountboard (blackcore is best) taped under the rebate will lift the glass off the photo.
