Cold mounting is the preferred method for sticking works on paper down to a flat surface or substrate. Its particularly useful for digital photographs which are sensitive to heat. The process involves a double sided transfer tape rolled onto the reverse surface of the image and then the image is adhered to the substrate. The transfer material is acid free but is permanent and not reversable. Cold mounted works can be framed under glass or hung using split battons. Contact us for a quote
