Mounting Options

Bay Photo currently offers 8 types of mounting for photographic print orders through ShootProof. Print mounting is a process where photographic prints are mounted to a substrate (matboard, styrene, foam, etc.) to enhance the presentation of the print and increase durability. 

2mm Styrene Mounting (White or Black) - Styrene is a super smooth plastic mounting substrate that is known for its durability, rigidity, and strength.

Gator Foamboard - Gator foamboard (or Gatorfoam) is a very rigid foamboard and lightweight backing with a matte black finish. 

Masonite Mounting - Masonite is a heavy-duty, rigid, and durable mounting material. This high-end material adds weight to your presentation for a finished product with long-lasting durability.

Canvas Board Mounting - Canvas board is made by bonding a print on Professional Photo Paper to a museum quality canvas, or printing a Giclée Fine Art Print directly onto canvas material. The print is then mounted on Gator Foamboard. It is durable and will not warp. 

Stretched Canvas Mounting - Stretched canvas mounting is made by bonding prints on Professional Photo Papers onto museum quality canvas or printing Giclée Fine Art Prints directly onto the canvas material. The resulting prints are then stretched and stapled onto a wood artists stretcher bar frame, making it suitable for framing or displaying as-is.

2/3" or 1-1/2" Standout Mounting (Black, Brushed Stainless, Maple, or White) - Standout mounting has finished edges in the selected color, giving a contemporary look to unframed images. 

3/4" Bamboo Standout Mounting - Prints are mounted onto a sustainably harvested solid Bamboo panel.


Texture Options

Canvas, pebble, and linen textures can be applied to the surface of prints for an added effect. Surface textures add copyright protection as well as a professional touch to your photographic prints. 

Each texture can be seen below:



 

Adding Mounting & Texture to Prints

Mounting and texture options can be added to items in an order by clicking the Edit Item button on an individual item. The available mounting and texture options will show for the selected, along with the associated cost. Options and prices vary based on the print type and size.  

Note: Mounting is not available for wallets or the following print sizes: 3.5 x 5, 20x36.

Texture is not available for the following sizes: 30x30, 20x36, 30x40

Color Correction

Color Correction is an optional add-on when fulfilling orders with Bay Photo through ShootProof. With Color Correction, each image in your order will be individually color corrected by Bay Photo's experienced technicians. This includes adjustments for Lightness/Darkness, Red, Green, Blue, Saturation, and Contrast. Each image is viewed and color corrected by hand. Bay Photo calibrates their machines regularly throughout the day to ensure consistent results. 

The price for color correction from Bay Photo is based on the largest item per unique image in your order. This means that if Image A was being printed at ten different sizes in a particular order, you would only be charged one time for color correction for that file, with the price being based on the largest size being order. See prices below:
