"Dibond" is a composite material made up of two thin sheets of aluminium sandwiched around a PVC centre. Lightweight, rigid and perfectly flat it is the ideal support for large format photographs. I use 3mm thick sheets of dibond for all picture sizes.
The photo is covered with a very thin semi mat plastic film which protects it from dust, UV and other polluants as well as giving it an anti reflection finish. The result is striking.

Reflections are practically non existent
I fix a wooden chassis onto the backs of all formats from 33 x 48cm or panoramic 75cm. This distances the photo from the wall giving it a new dimension. The photo looks like it is suspended in mid air. A metal "hanger" is attached to the wooden chassis for easy wall mounting.

For A4 and panoramic 50cm pictures i fix an adhesive hook to the back of the dibond mount.

A modern and striking effect
I treat my pictures like works of art and take great care when mounting them...As i do for each print and every photo take.
