What is the difference between a Gallery Plexi Mount and a Museum Sandwich Mount?

Although Duggal has several options for mounting and finishing, “floating” gallery plexi and museum sandwich plexi mount offer a very polished and professional appearance. Here is the difference between the two:

Gallery Plexi mount is used by artists around the world for premium presentations.  The image (print on glossy, matte, metallic (smooth) photographic paper for best results) is face mounted onto acrylic and backed by sintra board and a ¾” wood brace (see “Bracing Options at Duggal” for more information on bracing). On the back there is a mounting cleat, making the image appear as if it is floating of the wall.

 

Museum sandwich plexi mount is specifically for museums, galleries, and artists to protect images (print on glossy, matte, metallic (smooth) photographic paper for best results) from moisture damage. The image is placed between two pieces of polished acrylic (clear or no-glare) and finished with an aluminum tube brace to prevent warping over time.
