The final package is a sandwich of foamboard, photograph, and windowed mountboard. To produce this first the photograph is hinged off the backing board with two small pieces of tape.
Then the mount is sandwiched to the foam board using ATG (Adhesive Transfer Gun) tape (ATG is basically double sided sticky tape dispensed from a gun). The hinging allows for expansion and contraction of the paper due to atmospheric conditions. The ATG tape holds the whole thing together into a solid package.
Each print is signed & numbered and the details entered into my Limited Edition management system: Lemon
I use lemon to generate a certificate of ownership which is embossed by a limited edition seal, signed and then taped to back of the picture
