We use a multitude of materials, substrates, and methods to prepare your piece for the spotlight. Thirty years of experience has led us to boast the cleanest and most accurate mounting and laminating services in the Toronto and the GTA.

All finishing, mounting and framing services are offered exclusively for prints made at Colourgenics.
Consultation, as always, is free.

Lamination

We offer an array of lamination options; needs are assessed upon consultation – please contact us for information.

Mounting & Facemounting

Our flush or float mounting options include:

  • premium Artcare™ archival foamcore
  • 3/16" and 1/2" Gator™, Sintra™, and Dibond™

Most materials come in black or white options, in maximum sizes ranging from 48" x 72" to 60" x 120" depending on the material. Other colours, thicknesses and dimensions may be available by special order.

Plexiglas™ with Dibond

We are proud to offer facemounting to Plexiglas™ with Dibond backing and custom aluminum back frames, which protect pieces from warping and allow for easy installation. They offer a clean and modern way to present your artwork, with the back frame serving as a spacer between the image and the wall; thus giving the impression of artwork hanging in the air.

Full aluminum tube-frames and cross braces may be recommended for large pieces, and less costly aluminum U-channels are available for smaller-sized works. Standard FF grade Plexiglas™ is normally used, and Conservation grade (OP3) material is available by special order.

TruLife® Acrylic

TruLife® Acrylic is the best available for facemounting, giving your work the highest-resolution viewing experience possible. TruLife® gives artists:

  • Amazing clarity - Formulated to transmit 98% of light in the visible spectrum, giving your work brilliant, crisp colour vibrancy.
  • Longevity - 99% UV protection protects your photos and art from fading.
  • Durability - Unlike other acrylics that attract dust and scratch easily, TruLife offers up to 20x the protection and stands up to frequent handling and cleaning.
  • Viewability - TruLife acrylic is manufactured with a proprietary, anti-reflective coating which eliminates distracting reflections and glare.



Framing

A selection of simple and elegant frame moldings is now in stock for your custom framing needs. Together with custom cut mats, our on-site framing service uses only premium materials and high production standards for building frames up to 32” x 40" in size.

Upgrading to conservation standards is also possible upon consultation.

We also have a variety of economical, high quality ready-made frames for standard size photographs.

Canvas Stretching

We stretch canvas prints on standard (0.75") or gallery (1.50") profiles, with even-sized dimensions (20”, 24”, 26”, etc).

Delivery

Upon request, Colourgenics can arrange to safely and securely ship your work across Canada or internationally. In addition to any specialty packaging and shipping costs, a handling fee may be applied.
