Mount Board

Our competition prints are mounted onto high-density 3mm white PVC Foamex board for a superior finish. This board is lightweight and sturdy making it the perfect mounting option for your competition prints. The board is completely flat and moisture resistant. Velcro straps will be supplied in addition with your competition print in order to hang your image if required. Alternatively, you can display your competition mounted print on an easel for display or individual handling. Packaged in a custom white box, your print is easy to transport safely making it perfectly portable.


Adding a border to your image for your competition mounted print can really add impact and focus to the subject. If you would like your prints to have a border, ensure you add this to your original file using Photoshop or lightroom before uploading and placing your order. Your canvas area will always need to match the print being ordered. For example, for a 20x16” competition print your canvas size will need to be 20x16” and your image size as the size you require. You could also add in your name, logo or date in the border for additional information on your mounted competition print. For high impact, add a PNG of your signature to create a one off stunning print.

Wall Fixings

All competition mounted prints are supplied with velcro straps which are popular for a quick and simple solution to fixing your prints onto a wall. These will be detached from the print so it gives you the flexibility of choosing where the straps are positioned.
