What is an aperture mount?

An aperture mount helps to protect your giclée print can at times enable your print buyer to purchase an off the shelf frame for the mounted print to fit in to.

A precise aperture (opening) is cut usually in the centre of the board, but it can be offset to give a slightly larger border on the bottom edge. Mounts come in a huge variety of colours, some of which are available in conservation quality board.

Double mounts can be cut to enable you to have 2 different (but complimentary) colours, with the bottom mount just having 5-10mm showing, this can be very effective with some images. Mounts can also be cut with more than one aperture so that many images can be framed together, this is more usual for photographs rather than art.
