I am constantly committing PDA – Public Displays of Affection – with my photography! After all, I am very passionate about the images I create and the life stories I am able to share. Is it really so bad for me to want my clients to be the same way?
Like many other photographers, I value photography as an art; it should be displayed for everyone to see and not stored away on a CD in your drawer or in the stockpiles of your computer files. Whether you frame it or put in on a display such as above, your memories and stories are meant to be shared with family and friends.
More often than not, new clients ask me about just plain ol’ gift prints — sizes 8×10, 5×7, 4×6 and wallets. While these are wonderful for GIFTS to your Aunt Betty or Grandpa Cecil, these are not what you want to display in your home.
I believe the perfect size for almost any situation, whether on your child’s wall or showcasing your engagement photo at your wedding, the 16 x 24 styrene-mounted print is by far the best option. It’s just that perfect size to commit your very own public display of affection!
I’m sure you understand why the 16×24 is so perfect; it’s not too big and not too small… it’s just right!
But, what is Styrene and why should a print be mounted?
Mounting is a cornerstone to protecting your portraits from the natural curling, bending and marking that is possible with the aging of your print. By adding a lightweight mounting to the back of your image it is sure to last throughout the generations; as well as the additional positives such as the print is smoother from the get-go, it’s always ready to frame without having to fuss with the cardboard inserts, and you can prop it up on a display mantel!
Styrene is an extremely lightweight yet super durable acid-free and moisture/humidity -free plastic mounting substrate that protects your print for a lifetime of well….. LIFE! It’s sort of like getting full coverage insurance on your prized Rolls Royce! I mean, you’re just like everyone else right? A Rolls Royce and a Ferrari in the driveway with your 15 bedroom mansion!? Ok, just kidding! But seriously! It’s really an amazing product to help protect your investment.
