Re: Mounting

Just found this: Think I'm good. Cheers! This is how I do it in my shop. I make the whole frame exactly 1/8" (1/16" on all sides) larger than the print. Reason for the 1/8" larger instead of 1/4" is the print has to set on the spacer and if you give it more than 1/16" on all sides it will drop in ag...

Re: Mounting

Thanks all. I guess really it just boils down to this: I don't want to print in direct contact to with the glass obviously, but do I need to have the framer fix it to the backboard anyway, or is it fine just sitting there with the spacers? I've read this can cause waviness overtime, but I'm thinking...

Mounting

Just curious if you need to worry about mounting a print to a backboard if there is no matting involved. I've been told both ways. Are spacers and a acid free backboard adequate without any tape?

Re: Flattening a folded poster

If it's something you really want fixed, contact Poster Mountain. They are awesome.

Re: Roll Bend Help

I had Poster Mountain flatten a creased Petrol Bomb I'd famed previously. The flattened print remained the exact same size as original, and slid precisely back into lineco mounts that had previously held it. Here's a pic from the framed banksy thread -- this is the flattened print (the one on the r...

Re: Roll Bend Help

Might not fit in that frame anymore after the "procedure" is done. Thanks! I've been reading up on it and John has said the dimensions might slightly change. Hoping it'll still fit in frame or I guess I'll have to figure something out with my framer...Really don't want to drop another $150 on a re-...

HAHA, I have no intentions of selling it. I'm just trying to figure out the best way to bring it back without spending a fortune or further effing it up.

Re: Roll Bend Help

Hmmm ok. Couldn't I just have it trimmed to its original size after?

Re: Roll Bend Help

Might not fit in that frame anymore after the "procedure" is done. Don't think it should affect it that much. You heard of similar situations? Dimensions can increase slightly after it's flattened. Maybe it will fare better than Mondo posters and their shitty stock though. Search this sub-forum for...

They definitely advise against ever rolling them from what I am reading. I certainly have no plans to let it be rolled again after I ship it to them. It's going straight from their flat shipper back into the frame.

Re: Roll Bend Help

Yep, emailed John and its $100 so I guess it's off to PM. I'd rather just have them do it than risk messing it up further by myself. Thanks for the help.

Re: Roll Bend Help

Can any reputable framer do that? What's the typical cost?

Roll Bend Help

Bought one of my big ISOs recently. After picking it up from the framer the other day, noticed there is a pretty decent roll bend. Guess the glass just brings it out more. Regardless, any help would be appreciated...I find it super distracting...What's the best way to get out or will it just fade gr...
