Mounting your artwork is a straightforward process, but it's often done incorrectly. Our GCF framers explain how to do it from the comfort of your own home.
Our how-to video above explains the essential steps for mounting a picture into a photo mount. For more detailed steps please see our guide below.
We want your picture to be aligned properly and secured within the mount so it doesn't drop in the future. We also want to make sure that you're using the right materials for the type of picture you're framing. So, you'll need to consider to what FATG standard you'd like to mount your image. Learn more about mounting standards.
Mounting your picture should take no longer than 2 minutes.
One of the main issues people encounter when incorrectly mounting their picture, is that that the picture creases and bends over time as the image and mountboard expand and contract at different rates due to changes in temperature and moisture. To counter this, the picture should be left to "hang free" by hinging only the top of the mount.
