The Block Frame Look
The print is firstly laminated. This protects the faceof the print from dirt, moisture, and bacteria.
It is then pasted down onto 6mm MDF board and put through a vacuum press which pulls the print down smoothly onto the backing board. The mounted print is then glued into a rebated, flat sided moulding in which the top edge of the frame sits flush with the face of the print giving an extra chunky block mount look. Finally, it is strung ready for hanging.
This is a popular Art Retro style of presentationwhich is a low cost way of achieving a chunky block look while still retaining the retro style.
