Mounting Canvas from HP B9180, 9180, onto Gatorboard
Aug 7, 2008

What is the best way to mount a canvas print from an HP pigment printer, or any pigment printer, to Gatorboard ( Gator Board ?)? I know some people use Rollataq or Scotch Positionable Mounting Adhesive PMA, to mount photo paper or fine art paper to the Gator board. Can these be used to mount canvas prints as well? Breathing Color also has an article (see below) about using Glamour II as a mounting adhesive. Anyone have experience doing that? Glamout II is good but is a little expensive.

Maybe you have a better way of mounting canvas to gatorboard. I

Glamour II Veneer can be used as a mounting adhesive. Make sure that you are mounting the print before coating the top of the print. When you are using Glamour II Veneer as a mounting adhesive, you want to dilute it with 10% distilled water. After diluting it, apply it to the surface that you will be mounting your inkjet canvas or fine art paper print to. Make sure that you are very generous with the coating. After placing the print over the coated surface, run your hands over the print and make sure there are no air pockets underneath the print. Be sure to not apply the Glamour II Veneer directly to the back of the inkjet canvas or fine art paper. Mounting fine art paper can be easier sometimes than mounting inkjet canvas because the back of the fine art paper is more consistent.
