Some competitions require the participant to mount the photographs on a mounting board.

Can anyone explain to me this process? And where can these mounting boards be bought at?

Thanks so much! :D

Spray Mount is glue in a spray can. This is so the glue can be applied thinly and evenly. Often used for mounting artwork. Easily available at bookshops and art shops. Normally known as 'spray adhesive'.

actually there's a frames shop that also have mounting services in Holland V. Quality is not bad and I use them for my projects. Can't remember the name but it's near Coffee Club. Can check it out. It's $4.50 per piece IIRC. :)

Be very careful of the type of spray mounting adhesive you use. Make sure it is photo-safe. I use 3M Photo Spray Mount.

It looks like the normal 3M spray mount, except the label on the aerosol can is yellow instead of red. It will say on the can 3M Photo Spray Mount.

If you want to mount your prints and make them archival, in my opinion, spray mount is not the way to go.

Anyone here dry mounts on 4 ply, 100% rag matt board? Or anyone know where I can get some? I have tried Bras Basah and all i got were funny looks.
