Affordable and Contemporary

Box mounts at Color Wheel in McLean
Box Mounts are an affordable alternative to custom picture framing. In this process art is permanently adhered onto the top of a shallow 'box' of styrene or Masonite, with laminate sides. The finished box has a clean, modern look and is about 1½" deep. Several different side colors are available, but most clients choose black, since it looks striking and goes with most decorating schemes. 

Box Mounts are the perfect price-friendly solution for a family photo wall. Large pictures look dramatic Box Mounted. Consider it for art show or golf tournament posters, nautical charts, maps, and for movie posters to hang in home theaters. Because there's no glass, Box Mounted pieces are lightweight and glare-free depending on the chosen finish. This also makes Box Mounts especially suitable for dorm rooms and high-traffic areas. 

Posters, photographs, and inexpensive reproductions are the best choices for Box Mounting since they'll be permanently glued down, and a finish will be applied to seal the surface. Original artworks, documents, family heirlooms, antiques, and other valuable pieces should be preserved with custom picture framing.

For a fresh contemporary look that's also affordable, bring your pictures to Color Wheel and have them Box Mounted!
