What is Plaque Mounting?


Plaque mounting, also known as a block or "plak" mounting, is a popular method of displaying artwork, photos, and prints. In this process, your artwork is laminated with a matte, UV-protective laminate film. It is then mounted on a sturdy, high-density wood fibre plaque and finished with a coloured bevelled edge, which can be customized with various colours. Hanging the artwork for display is made easy with a keyhole cut into the back of the plaque ensuring your artwork hangs flush against the wall.



Why Choose Plaque Mounting?


  • Affordable: Cost-effective compared to traditional framing, with added benefits like ease of cleaning and glare-free viewing.
  • Glass-Free: Perfect for high-traffic areas and children's rooms, eliminating the risk of shattering glass.
  • Durable & Frameless: Plaque mounting secures your art on sturdy wood fibre plaques, eliminating the need for frames.
  • Modern & Customizable: Choose from a variety of edge colours for a contemporary and personalized look.
  • Easy for Moving: Our lightweight wooden backing makes it convenient for moving, allowing you to display your art with ease wherever you choose.
  • Permanence and Preservation: The UV-protective laminate ensures your art not only lasts for generations but also remains protected against moisture, UV light, smudges, and scratches, preserving its beauty for years to come.


Which Plaque Style Suits You Best?



  • PlaqueMount: This classic option provides a clean, borderless look that presents your art seamlessly. It's perfect for showcasing photographs or artwork with vibrant colours and sharp details.
  • FloatMount: For a contemporary feel, FloatMount creates a 3D effect, making your artwork appear to "float" within the frame. Ideal for adding depth to your art.
  • FlushMount: A sleek and elegant choice that offers a seamless edge-to-edge display, making it perfect for minimalist art or pieces with subtle textures.
  • Masomount on Plaque: Combining the borderless look of PlaqueMount with the contemporary feel of FloatMount, it offers a unique blend that highlights the contours and dimensions of your art.
  • Acrylic Maso FloatMount: A captivating depth and high-gloss effect that transforms your photo while offering UV stabilization for long-lasting protection.
