custom plak mounted work by some of our favorite local artists.


What is plak mounting?

Simply, it is a way to mount your posters, images, and art to a hardwood surface with a beveled, colored

edge and a laminate finish with UV protection. It comes ready to hang on your wall. Variations of this

process are available. Please contact us today for a free quote and more information. 

What kinds of plak mounting are there?

• Mounting images onto thicker wood (traditional)

• Mounting images onto masonite (thinner wood)

• Refer to our Products page to see everything that is available.

What are the advantages of plak mounting?

  • It's a low-cost alternative to framing

  • It's a clean, contemporary look

  • Because no mats are needed, large pieces do not have to get any larger

  • The laminate surface is easy to wipe clean

  • Plak mounting can be framed without glass if you want to change the look of your piece in the future

  • No glass to break     

What can be plak mounted?

  • Posters, prints and photos

  • Artwork including drawings, charcoals, pastels, watercolors, oils, acrylics, collage, pen & ink, colored pencil, crayon, tempera and more

  • Awards, certificates, diplomas and the like

  • Newspaper articles and pictures as well as images and articles from magazines, books, comic books, etc.

  • Sale flyers and store promotions, price lists and signage

  • Menus and specials

What shouldn't be plak mounted?

Plak mounting is done with heat and pressure.  Although the greatest care is taken with all items being

mounted there is always a chance that damage can occur. 

  • Irreplaceable and items of great value should be framed rather than plak. 

  • There are some digital printing processes that do not react well to heat. 

It is important to let us know how your item was printed. 

  • Pieces on paper that have been wrinkled, creased or torn sometimes will flatten

out and plak beautifully, but will also sometimes wrinkle or crease.

  • Items that have been made with layers of paper that have been glued or pasted together (especially children's artwork)

will often "show" the layers or glue lines after plaque mounting.

  • Tickets to sports or theatre events may be printed on thermal sensitive card stock to avoid copying

(these will turn black from the heat if plak mounted)

(we recommend that you allow us to reproduce the tickets photographically so as not to damage the originals.)

  • Items like college diplomas that can not be replaced should be reproduced before plak mounting and the original kept in a safe place.


Through our partners, we offer replica printing. We will be happy to discuss any item you may be

concerned about and offer our advice on the safest ways to proceed!
