edging Rigid Displays (Mounting Graphics)

Graphics mounted onto a substrate such as foam board, Gator board, etc. are formally known as rigid displays. Rigid displays typically consist of a four elements: the rigid substrate (board), an adhesive, the print, and an over-laminating film.

Rigid displays are created in a two step process. First, a decal is made by simultaneously applying a laminating film to the face of a print and a mounting adhesive on the back. Pressure Sensitive laminating films and mounting adhesives are typically used together for this process.

Next, the release liner is removed from the mounting adhesive and the decal is applied to the board.

Mounting adhesives can also be used to pre-coat boards for mounting graphics at a later time. To create a pre-coated board, simply apply a mounting adhesive to a rigid substrate and trim off any excess material. Just prior to mounting, remove the release liner to expose the adhesive and adhere the image to the board by processing through a wide format laminator.

Another alternative is to use adhesive coated boards (either with hot or cold adhesive) or pouch boards. We stock these and they are also available in custom sizes. We also fabricate a range of cold adhesive pouch boards which are adhesive boards with a sheet of cold laminate attached.
