Available now, Have Your Photos Mounted To 3/4″ Bamboo Panels.

We are very excited to roll out our new eco-friendly bamboo panel product. Bamboo plywood is extremely strong, beautiful and is a sustainable product. This is the same product that is being used to make high end bamboo cabinetry and furniture.  This plywood is made of fine layers of bamboo strips laying in parallel order. Three layers are cross-laminated and heat pressed together to provide stability and to prevent warping. Bamboo plywood is 3-4 times more dimensionally stable then Oak. The panels are 3-ply 3/4″ thick vertical grain bamboo and each piece is unique. To give the bamboo panels a finished look, we sand and put a clear stain on each panel once an order is placed. Note that some panels will have imperfections making them even more  unique and beautiful. If you have any questions about the bamboo or any of our other products please feel free to contact us or call us at 1-877-518-5187.

Iowa Engineering Firm Modus Displays Projects Using BumbleJax Face Mounted Plexiglass

We just finished a large printing project for Modus, an Iowa based mechanical and electrical engineering firm.  Bumblejax was asked to produce sixteen 24″ x 36″ face-mounted plexiglass prints showcasing many of Modus’s projects for the open house of their new office building.  We really enjoyed working with Chris Davis and company at Modus and we couldn’t be happier with the results.

If you are a business, artist, clown, fireman, nurse or anyone else and are looking for more then a few prints or want a custom size, call us for a quote (1-877-518-5187) or email us at support@bumblejax.com. We will get back to you lightning quick or dinner is on me!

What Is Face Mounting?

Face mounting is a process that involves applying an optically clear adhesive to the face of the print then adhering the print to acrylic, otherwise known as plexiglass.  Once the print is adhered to the acrylic, a backing material like dibond (best) or sintra is adhered to the back of the print to protect the print and provide rigidity to the art.  The backer also provides the surface to adhere the hanging and floating hardware which provides that modern, floating off the wall look.

If you’re a professional photographer or artist, this is an excellent choice for differentiating yourself from the pack.  Acrylic face mounting gives prints a very modern and vibrant look which is great for the home or showing your work in a gallery.

Here you can see a video we did a few years back showing the entire process (a  few minor changes have been made since) and no, we never put our logo on your prints.  This was just a promo piece we did!

5 Reasons Why We Like Aluminum Mounted Digital Prints.

There has been a lot of interest in the aluminum recently and I wanted to share 5 reasons why I think this is a great choice for photo mounting and showing off your prints.

1) Aluminum is a modern and fashionable way to display photography. I’ve seen professional photographers show their work in galleries using aluminum panels.

2) Besides being my favorite option for displaying photographs, aluminum displayed photographs look great in any home decor.

3) These aluminum panels are recyclable and stainless.

4) Aluminum is very durable. You will never have to worry about dinging up the corners with this material.

5) The aluminum we use is 1/8″ thick which, when hung on a wall, gives the appearance that your print is floating off the wall.
