An increasingly popular mounting methods is face-mounting the image to acrylic, glass or transparent substrates. Through the process of face-mounting the substrate becomes both the protective glazing and the support for the photographic and digital images.

Face mounting techniques is a trend preferred by many contemporary digital and photographic artists to present their images in a frameless manner. It provides the desire of frameless but quality aesthetic appearance to meet the presentation requirements. In short, face mounting films join two surfaces together through the creation of a smooth bond. These graphics require the use of an optically clear mounting adhesive.
