What is a Bamboo Mount?
Instead of offering photos printed on canvas* we found + love Bamboo Mounts. These are created with premium C-Type photographic luster papers mounted with ph-neutral adhesives to eco-friendly bamboo panels. They give you a frameless, modern look that comes ready for your wall. Just like photographic prints, it is best not to hang these in direct sunlight or in overly damp environments.
*We have tested many “photo on canvas” options and have not been happy with the results. We would never sell a product to our clients that we wouldn’t buy ourselves. The Bamboo Mounts are our alternative – we think they are beautiful and love that they are also environmentally sustainable.
