Plaque Mount | More Information

Plaque mounting is a popular method used to display and preserve photographs, artwork, certificates, and other memorabilia. Here's a description of the plaque mounting process:

1. Substrate Material: The process typically begins by using a suitable material for mounting the photograph. Common materials are wood. We use MDF (medium density fibre board).

2. Preparation of the Photograph: The chosen photograph is prepared for mounting by ensuring it is clean and free from any dust or debris. The photo is then laminated for added protection against moisture and UV damage.

3. Mounting: The photograph is then adhered to the MDF substrate using an adhesive. This adhesive is applied evenly to the back of the photo before carefully positioning it onto the MDF mounting material.

4. Pressing: Once the photo is in place, pressure is applied evenly across the surface to ensure a secure and permanent bond between the photo and the MDF board. This is done using a heated roller or a heat press.

5. Trimming: Any excess material around the edges of the mounted photograph is trimmed away to create clean, straight edges.

6. Finishing Touches: Finally, the mounted photograph receives additional finishing touches by machining and bevelling the edges and applying a coloured trim. This adds a protective coating and frames the plaque mounted photograph around the edges to enhance its appearance and durability.
