    I do not hinge or otherwise attach the backing board onto the mounting board as the foam core is so easily damaged that I do not want it to be a semi-permanent part of the piece. Also for storage, it makes for a fairly thick package that requires more expensive boxes and space to store.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    A method that I find quite nice for Canadian Climate change issues is mount the fibre print to 4 ply rag board and then cold mount this 4 ply mount to diabond. Very rigid and no warping, adds cost and weight but really a nice base to add on an over matt.
    We are using more diabond for larger work where weight is not the concern in our frame shop.

    FWIW this is how Mr Penn mounted his work, diabond was replaced with sheet of aluminum,, as well he mounted a thin rag paper to the back for his notes... very nice presentation

    Darn!

    You guys got me thinking... I don't want to cheapen out this print and the framing job. So I'll use a mount board and thinner foam core so the darn thing will fit.

    Yay. Done!

    Image dry mounted on 2 ply mount board. Which is attached to 1/8" form core board via photo corners. Matted with 4 ply mat board then into a Nielsen frame and behind a glass.

    Looks good actually....

    1/8" looks and feels sturdy enough for this application of 9x13" image on 16x20 mat board and frame.

    Assuming your are using something like 2-ply rag board for the mounting board it will also be more archival than foamcore which is important with dry-mounting since you have not permanently attached the print to the mounting board. If the foamboard gets contaminated or warped over time you can easily swap it out with a fresh one.

    Yup.... I'm using Bainbridge Alpha Rag 2 ply mounting board that you sell. I stock few sheet of these here.

    Unfortunately, after a day in the frame, 1/8" foamcore board (purchased elsewhere locally) that I decided to use seem to have buckled that window opening is no longer sitting flush with the image. I now have a good idea on what may have happened. I'll be fixing it tonight.

    I took the frame apart. Sure enough, the backboard was warped with center bowing out. I just reassembled it with thicker board and new engineering measure to prevent warpage in the first place. Will see how it works.... I should know in the next few days.
