Overview Of Competition Mounted Prints

As an established professional lab & working closely with various professional photography bodies, we know the importance of qualifications in the photography field. Competitions provide valuable experience for all types of photographers both at entry level and leaders of the industry. With this in mind, we offer competition mounted prints with a superior finish; mounted on to 3mm high density white foamex board, they are both moisture resistant and lie completely flat so there is absolutely no room for warping or bowing. Our competition mounted prints are sized at 20 x 16 inches only and are provided as standard at full bleed without a border, so if required you must add your own. Once you’ve chosen your desired finish, use our superb online ordering system and your competition mounted print will be with you in no time.

Print Quality

Created with a premium quality fine art giclée print, we use state of the art technology for high definition and high resolution prints. The Epson Stylus Pro 9890 used for our competition prints creates true-to-life prints with top quality colour gamuts and consistently smooth graduations using Ultrachrome K3 archival ink.

Mounted Onto 3mm Foamex

Our competition prints are mounted onto high-density 3mm white PVC Foamex board which is lightweight, sturdy, moisture resistant and lies completely flat. Hang on the wall with the velcro straps provided or display your competition mounted print on an easel for easy presentation, manual handling or judging panels.

No border image

Add Your Own Border

Competition prints do not have a border added as standard. All images are printed at full bleed at 20x16", meaning any border requirements must be added directly to your file before uploading. You could also add in your name, logo, caption or PGN signature in the border for additional information or impact.

Bespoke Sizes

Competition mounted prints are always provided as an overall size of 20x16" so cannot be provided in custom sizes. You are able to add any border size to your image to make the overall print size 20x16" if your image does not exactly fit these proportions. Please ensure your file is sized correctly and formatted in Photoshop beforehand. If you are in need of smaller & larger mounted prints please have a look at our mounting and laminating page as these are available in a range of different sizes and bespoke requirements.

How To Display Your Competition Mounted Print

Competition mounted prints are supplied with separate velcro strips, which are popular for a quick and simple solution to fixing your lighter weight prints onto a wall for exhibitions. Alternatively stand your mounted print directly on an easel for an instant display or easy handling if required.
