Block mounting is the process of adhering (laminating) a photograph, poster or any other printed paper onto a rigid backing board, which in most cases would be a “block” of MDF wooden board. Photo mounting or laminating mounting are more general terms that would encompass adhering to other backing boards in addition to MDF, (e.g., foam core, gatorboard, etc.).
As opposed to picture framing, where your photo, poster or other printed item is mounted within a mat, covered in glass, and surrounded by a decorative frame, block mounting / photo mounting provides a clean frameless modern look. It’s light weight, and can be heat sealed with a transparent laminate for additional protection and durability, (which is another reason why this process is often called laminating mounting – see laminating services for further details).
Aside from being a popular affordable alternative to framing, block / photo mounting’s extra depth, dimension, and clean frameless appearance is often preferred for many applications.
