The Wood Mount
Permanently bonding an image to a thick piece of hardboard and adding a protective laminate creates this mounted print. Distinctly crafted for an elegant and modern look, this piece is finished with a black beveled edge. The mount is braced in the back to gracefully lift the print off the wall. Mounted prints are constructed upon order by skilled artisans. A unique and affordable alternative to framing.
