The mounts available from RediPix do not feature glass cover. The canvas, Photo Tex, and fine art paper we use have a matte (non-reflecting) surface. Without reflections and glare, the prints have a wonderful presence, like looking out an open window. Why not use non-reflective glass? It is expensive and hard to ship. It also desaturates color, lightens blacks, and blurs the image. Our protective coating takes the place of glass by absorbing UV light and by resisting abrasion. We can apply a gloss coating if you want that extra "pop" with brighter colors and deeper blacks, but with less glare than glass.
The first step in most of our mountings is to dry mount the print to sturdy 1/4" MightyCore board made from smooth acid-free paper, a moisture barrier, and an inert core. This makes a bond that is permanent although reversible with 200 degree heat. The mounted print with coating will not warp even when submerged in water.
For most mountings, a wire loop on the back is provided for easy hanging. The loop is attached close to the front face of the print so it pulls the print tight against the wall. We also provide glue-dots for the corners to keep the print straight.
The main image or a printed border wraps around the sides of the box. This has the same look as an oil painting on canvas stretched on a wood frame; however, the MightyCore board supports the canvas better and protects it from the back side...more

The print is mounted to the front side of a box made with black MightyCore board. The acid-free paper surface of the black or white board shows on the sides and optionally can be revealed on the front to frame the print. Without a black border seen from the front, this mount looks similar to Gallery wrap but it is less expensive for a given size since you are not paying for canvas and ink on the sides...more
The same as above, except shipped without a print and a pressure-sensitive adhesive on the front...more
The print is mounted to black MightyCore board and trimmed to the edge of the image or image border. The black core of the MightyCore board is visible around the edge or the print can wrap around the sides. This mounting is useful for self standing display, picture walls, floating mount, and ready-to-frame options...more
The print is mounted to black MightyCore board which is suspended out from the wall by a hidden black box on the back. The box keeps the print flat and has a hanging wire. The print can wrap around the sides...more
The mounted print is set into the front of an aluminum section frame. There is a small space between the edge of the print and the frame, thus the name "floating frame"...more
A custom solid hardwood frame is constructed and the mounted print is set into the front of it. There is a small space between the edge of the print and the frame, thus the name "floating frame"...more
