Choosing a Framing or Print Option and Sizing: I have created a Google Sheets spreadsheet to help you order the correct size and type of framing for your image here: Mountain West Photography 2021 Price List
Below is a small subset of the framing options that can be provided to mount and enhance your image.
Metal Print, Gallery Mount
Metal Images are printed using a Dye Infusion process. Metal prints are available in Three finishes. There are three levels of gloss. Deciding upon which level of gloss is a highly personal matter. While gloss is used by the majority of our customers because of its extraordinary luminosity, if glare is a problem (lots of windows), then Satin or Matte might be a better choice.
Material: Aluminum sheet
The Gallery Mount is a very economical but elegant solution to hanging your metal print. The Gallery Mount is made from aluminum channels recessed in from the edge of the print by 1.5". It floats your print off the wall by 3/4" creating a very contemporary look. The Gallery Mount comes with a hanging wire attached so that your print is ready to hang right out of the box. Security mounts can be substituted for the wire if you would prefer.
