Pressure Mounted Prints

Under changing humidity conditions, sometimes Cibachrome prints will exhibit a waviness which can be disturbing. This problem can be solved by pressure mounting the print. We have found that we need to pressure mount only about 1% of the prints we sell — but it’s an important option for the times that it’s needed.

We’ve tested almost every product on the market and have found only one that works properly — naturally, it’s also the most expensive. This is Permacolor Permatrans mounting film. This is a pressure sensitive adhesive roll material which we first apply to a sheet of polycarbonate plastic .030″ thick. The back of the print is then pressure mounted to the sheet of plastic, which permanently removes any waviness.

We offer this as an option for any of Christopher’s prints. We charge $150.00 + shipping for any 30x40″ or 30x30″ print or $75.00 + shipping for any 20×24″ or 20×20″ print. (40x50″ and 40×40″ prints are always furnished pressure mounted.) Please contact us (or have your gallery contact us) if you have a need for this service.
