We are excited to announce some additional options available RIGHT NOW in our shopping cart. Our professional lab, Bay Photo, offers several a la carte framing, mounting and print options to ensure your finished print displays a perfect, polished presentation. Framing and mounting options are available at checkout (just click the "Add Photo Extras" button in the cart beside each print!), and are currently offered at our cost - no markup - as we try out this new service. Coupons and discounts do not apply to this service at this time - any discounts will only apply to the actual print prices prior to adding these options.
*Note that not all options are available for all print sizes.
Read on to find out more about your mounting and framing options.
Choose from 14 different high quality wood and metal frames. They arrive ready to display with hardware attached and clear, shatterproof acrylic front.
Add a mat to give the photo a clean, professional finish. Available in three colors: Black, White and Off-White.
This super-smooth, compact 2mm styrene board cleanly backs your print, providing durability and protection against dents, bangs and warping. Available in two colors: Black or White.
Try this elegant, lightweight option that gives your photo incredible presence, either propped up on its own or neatly framed the traditional way. Bevel Mounts create a ¼ inch border around your photo when viewed from the front. Choose from Black, Silver or Gold.
Mount your prints on this rigid black foamboard to add durability and prevent warping and damage. Note: Gatorfoam is slightly thicker and lighter in weight than the Styrene backing.
This feather-light, ready-to-hang option is a contemporary favorite! Prints are mounted on a block with thick black edges, letting your photo stand off the wall. Pre-drilled holes are included on the back for easy hanging.
We recommend mounting any prints 16x20 and larger on styrene or gatorfoam if you plan to frame them on your own! If you order Framed Prints through us, they are automatically mounted on 1/4" Foam Board to ensure that the print does not warp.
Paper Textures and Finishes
Matte is flat, so why not upgrade your paper? Choose from Pebble, Canvas or Linen surface textures to add subtle dimension to your finished print.
Guard your masterpiece against scratches and other surface damage. Bay Photo’s Protective Coating is available in Glossy and Lustre finishes to give you peace of mind.
Beautiful and strong, this Satin Laminate finish protects your print from everyday wear and tear. And it gives your photo a polished, gentle sheen.
