For this the print is first dry-mounted to black MighyCore board as with several of our products, then the outer edge of the print is wrapped around the edge similar to our Gallery Wrap Elite but here it is only 1/2 inch deep. Then the mounted print is suspended in the front opening of a high quality aluminum frame. From the figure below you can see that the edge of the print is separated by a small distance from the frame, hence the term "floating frame". Order now

Alternative edge treatments

Instead of wrapping the print around the edge of the board, we can trim the mounted print so the black edge of the Ryno Board is visible in the gap between the print and the frame. This is our former mounting method and is shown on some photos on this page.

If you do not want a floating mount, we can hide the edge behind the front of the moulding. In this case the print will be set back about 1/8 inch from the front edge of the frame.

These alternative mountings are available at the same price, but we think you will like the floating wrap mount best. Since the floating wrap option is the default when you place your order, you need to enter your desire for alternative edge treatment in the special instructions box on the options page.

Color and size

The aluminum mouldings we use are Nielsen Bainbridge 117 with 32 colors available as shown at bottom of this page. We presently stock only 117-21 Matte Black and 117-14 German Silver, but we can obtain others in a few days. You can specify the color on the options page. Since we order special colors in small quantity and have to pay shipping to us, we charge more for them.

The mouldings are 1-5/16 inch deep and 7/16 inch wide. The color is uniform over the sides and front. The forged texture is only on the front.

Photos of prints and Customer feedback

"The prints arrived today with no problem, they look great. I had the customer come by this evening and showed him both prints. [We shipped him a print on Optica One paper with floating mount and an other on SmoothPhotoCloth with the metal frame shown here.] I noted the color difference in the whites of the SmoothPhotoCloth but he liked the metal frame so much he choose that one instead. I also like the look of the metal frame. I am sure this will be an excellent option on future orders. Thanks. "... Aaron Roth

Matte black metal frame

This panorama is set into the front of a matte black metal frame. There is a small gap between the print and frame. The print is on SmoothPhotoCloth. The matte black frame is our favorite. The prints in these frames can be up to 46 inches wide.

I think I counted 12 exclamation points! (oops..make that 13) ” ...Jonathan Marks www.jonmarkstudio.com

Forged rustic bronze metal frame
