Mounting and Laminating Services


From Gatorfoam to sintra, dibond, and even aluminum, we can mount to a variety of sleek-looking substrates, and laminate on both sides of your prints.

Turnaround time is approximately two weeks. Rush orders can be usually be accommodated for an additional 35% surcharge.

Please note that mounted prints lose approximately 1/8″ on all sides during the mounting process. If your print needs to be of an exact size, please size your image 1/4″ larger overall to compensate.

We are the only lab in San Francisco to still offer In-House Mounting and Laminating

Our favorite
mounting substrates

Gatorfoam.

Similar to foam-core, it is comprised of extruded polystyrene foam bonded between two layers of wood-fiber veneer. More info.

Sintra.

A lightweight and rigid PVC foam board with a high resistance to moisture and many chemicals as well as a smooth solid face. More info.

Aluminum.

Thin and sturdy, mounting on aluminum provides far more reliable results than printing on it.

Dibond.

The industry’s leading aluminum composite material for more than 15 years. It is comprised of two pre-painted sheets of .012″ aluminum with a solid polyethylene core. More info.
