Foam Core & PVC Foam Board


Block mounting is the process of adhering (laminating) a photograph, poster or any other printed paper onto a rigid backing board

As opposed to picture framing, where your photo, poster or other printed item is mounted within a mat, covered in glass, and surrounded by a decorative frame, block mounting / photo mounting provides a clean frameless modern look.  It's light weight, and can be heat sealed with a transparent laminate for additional protection and durability.

Aside from being a popular affordable alternative to framing, block / photo mounting's extra depth, dimension, and clean frameless appearance is often preferred for many applications.

  • Block mounting / photo mounting / laminating mounting is perfect for:
  • Photograph mounting
  • Picture mounting
  • Poster mounting, (e.g., movie posters, educational posters, corporate marketing posters, inspirational posters, etc.)
  • Limited edition print mounting
  • Artwork / art mounting
  • Digital print mounting
  • Canvas mounting
  • Advertising mounting
  • Corporate displays
  • Retail signage and display mounting
  • Exhibition and trade show graphics mounting


Types of mounting substrates:

Foam boards: available in 5mm and 10mm thicknesses. Superb for lightweight displays where a larger print requires hanging with either velcro or double-sided tape. We suggest 10 mm thickness for sizes greater than A0.

MDF boards: MDF is available in 5mm, 9mm and 12mm in thickness. The use is suitable for permanent display projects which need extreme accuracy in critical alignment. And it’s less likely to ding when knocked by some careless burger.

Foamed PVC boards: It’s one of the most popular boards used.It’s thinner, lighter and extremely smooth. Available in 3mm thickness).
