Block Mounting

Looking for a modern and cost-effective way to mount your favourite photo, poster, children’s artwork or your shop’s advertising or retail display, so it’s sturdy, looks smooth, clean and professional and is ready to hang? Have it block-mounted by Prints R Us.

Block mounting – also known as display mounting, photo mounting or art mounting – is sealing high quality Photographic Prints onto a wooden MDF board.

Block mounts are a popular and affordable alternative to framing and can be used to mount any type of printed paper.

Your image will sit almost flush with the wall using a 1cm thin MDF board, whilst still maintaining a professional and durable finish.

Materials and Printing Process :

  • Upload your digital image or artwork (any size from 5x7inch up to 38x57inch) for us to print and mount onto MDF board.
  • We will print your image onto professional photographic paper with your preferred finish – matt or glossy.
  • Using a vacuum press and acid-free heat seal glue, your print is adhered securely onto a 10mm thick MDF wooden board with black edging.
  • Your image is then laminated for long-lasting protection, securely packaged and delivered to you, ready to hang.

How Much Does it Cost?

We have fixed prices for a range of sizes, or we can block mount custom-sized prints for you. Our Block Mount pricing below includes mounting and printing of your image – ready to hang.

  • Digital photos
  • Artwork and posters
  • Advertising
  • Retail posters
  • Signage

Need a thicker or lighter backing board?

Try our foam mounting service, which uses 2cm lightweight foam boards instead of 1cm MDF wooden boards.
