What is Drymounting?

Dry mounting is a common method for the frameless presentation of almost anything on paper.  The process involves permanently adhering artwork to an acid-free foamcore backing to quickly achieve a beautifully wrinkle-free look.  Dry mounting can dramatically improve the overall stability for thin or wrinkled artwork and allow for easier viewing, display and handling.  We offer On-the-Spot dry mounting services while you wait, and can accommodate any size up to 48″ x 96″.  Please note that sizes larger than 24” x 36” may require a slightly longer turnaround time.

What Can Be Drymounted?

  • posters of all sizes
  • photographs
  • laminated posters
  • photo copies
  • newspapers
  • children’s art
  • maps
  • some textiles and canvasses
  • diplomas and documents
* Dry mounting is a permanent, non-archival process and may not be appropriate for original works of art.
