Alternative presentation approaches?
Sep 2, 2009

Hi Folks,

I'm working on a body images that I will be exhibited at some point and I'd like to ask for your experience/ideas regarding alternatives to the frame/matt presentation style.

The images will be on 17x22" paper, and I would like a cool, urban (think skyscraper aesthetic) look. If I could afford to, I would mount them on plex, but I don't have the $$ for that.

Approaches I've thought of:

  • mounting on aluminum panels (with adhesive sheets or with pH neutral glue?)

  • laminating them (possible to do myself?)

  • sandwiching between sheets of plex (without face mounting to the plex)

If you've tried one of these methods, or have some thoughts about other methods, I'd sure appreciate hearing about your success/failure.

Ready-made frames bought in quantity would be cheapest (I can get them right now for $25 ea.), but that style isn't right.

Thanks for the help!
