How to prevent ripples when dry mounting artwork

How to quickly and easily dry mount a poster or print using self-adhesive board.

  • Step one

    Cut a piece of self-adhesive board that is around 100mm larger than the print. If you're adding a window mount increase the border so that it's wide enough to stick the mount onto.

  • Step two

    Peel back the first 50mm of release paper. Centre the print over the board on top of the release paper.

  • Step three

    Press the leading edge onto the adhesive, smoothing over with a clean microfibre cloth. Work your way down the print in stages, gently smoothing down with the cloth as you go.

  • Step four

    Don't remove the final section of the release paper. Instead lay it back down over the print and run a brayer roller to get a really good bond. You could also run it through a roller laminator.

  • Step five

    The mounted print should be left to cure for 24 hours. Once cured trim the edges, it is now ready to frame.
