September 10, 2015

We are pleased to announce that our dry mounting service is now available at J & J Digital.  

What is dry mounting?

Dry mounting is a permenant mounting process where art is attached to a mounting substrate such as foam for or fine art board.  Whether it be dry mounting, wrapped canvas finishing or double mounted framed prints, J & J has the tools and experience to meet your needs.

J & J customer, Matt Cooper, commented "These are awesome!  They were thrilled!" in reaction to his recent delivery of dry mounted images from the NASA archives for his sons' room.

What type of art should be dry mounted?

Dry mounting is most commonly used with open-edition prints and posters. The method fits a particular need when it comes to transforming an otherwise ordinary work into something more special.

The technique is mainly for aesthetic purposes.

Remember that it is NOT reversible. If you’re unsure as to whether or not you will need to undo a mounting, ask a local design expert before you consider any type of method. Let them know what type of artwork you are looking to mount and frame.

The goal of dry mounting is to allow you to frame and prominently display an item rather than simply pinning it up on the wall as is. It allows you to create something more with your existing decor. Once you’ve chosen dry mounting as your prefered method, you can then consult with a designer in order to find out what type of custom frame will work best with the piece of art.
