Artwork may require simple unattached perma-life corners hidden under a mat or difficult complex procedures.
Rare vintage historical objects tend to be made of traditional materials and usually dictate a traditional approach. One in which the less done, with the object, the better.

On the other hand Contemporary digital prints are now produced on a wide variety of papers. Artists are printing significant and valuable works on the largest digital printers and paper available.
These wonderful digital processes come with a host of display issues. The largest of these papers are typically very thin, coated on one side and manufactured in rolls. As a result the body of the paper has a memory and does not lay flat. Undulation or buckling in the surface of the paper is common. Because the paper is coated on one side it also responds very quickly to changes in temperature and humidity contributing all the more to unsightly stretching and buckling. The solution is to permanently mount the print to a stable substrate.
Here are a few of the acid free mounting methods we use.
- Perma-life paper or Mylar corners. - Hinging with rice paper using reversible adhesives. - Strong fabric hinging materials for large and/or heavy objects. - Full mounts to materials using cold dry mount processes. - Cotton mat board, canvas, acrylic sheets, Dibond, Aluminum.
