Would someone please offer a few ideas of how to frame/display a screen print on metal, i.e. frame material, matting, glass, protection, or none of the above? Thanks for any examples (photos) or advice (helpful hints).

Miss, as in Miss Bugs told me to use a tea tray frame around metal.makes it look like it floats. you don't have to use glass with metal prints.
Hope that helps.

I see, just drill holes in the four corners and then nail the sucker to the wall. Thanks! :notworthy:

I think your framing options are actually more open than if you had this print on paper. The metal isn't going to have the damage that paper would to UV rays, humidity, rough handling, etc... That being said, its also significantly heavier than any paper print you will own. So the thing I'm trying to figure out is, 'how do you mount this puppy?'....

Honestly, I've never mounted a print like this, so take the next few sentences with a grain of salt. Typical linen tape or acid free mounting corners do not apply, so why not go with a heavy duty back board (maybe even literally a board) and hot glue just the corners if you wanted to use mat/mats outside the image area. Or put the print on foamboard and frame it to the same dimensions as the print, this lets the moulding carry the weight and you only lose 1/4 inch (or so) on each side. Since most adhesive methods won't damage the metal, the only thing you really have to worry about is BENDING the metal. Hell, you could probably tape the fudge out of the back if you wanted to without hurting anything, it would just take you awhile to remove it if you ever wanted to sell/reframe it later. I did some searching, but couldn't find any good examples in the 5 minutes I gave it. If you look around for awhile longer, you'll probably find something that would work for you.

I'm not sure what this type of frame is called. I've been searching for a while to find options on how to frame metal prints and this is just something I came across. There is little info on the gallery direct site about this frame.

you should be more worried about UV interaction with the inks, not the paper, so the same light problems probably exist. I could be wrong.
