Perhaps one of the most difficult, and impressive, ways to mount a photograph is the salon mount. This process reveals the image right up to it’s very edge, whereas a traditional mount would imply an overmat which actually covers a small portion of the photo. Because it is shown in it’s entirety, the photograph must be precisely trimmed, and in many cases, mounted exactly in the center of the substrate.
When performing a salon mount on materials like Di-bond or glass the substrate must be cut to size before the image can be adhered. This means that painstaking effort must be taken to ensure that the photograph maintains exact borders and square lines.
