Mounting Sale 2017 - 15% Off



We're running a 15% off sale on all mounted and/or laminated prints through the end of March 2017 (see instructions below).

Plak Mounting:
Plak mounted prints are mounted to premium hardboard or fiberboard and then sealed and protected by tough, durable and washable laminate. We use ph balanced laminates and acid free adhesives, providing years of protection and a lifetime of enjoyment. Images are protected from UV light, moisture, dust and fingerprints. For more information, please click here.




Classic Plak Mount - Your images are mounted to a 3/8" MDF and protected with our premium UV laminates. The edges are shaped and colored black. A keyhole on the back allows for easy hanging.

Block Plak Mount - Your images are mounted to a 1/8" tempered hardboard and protected with our premium UV laminates. A 3/4" mdf frame is applied to the back of the assembly flush with the edges of your images. The side profile is approx. 1" thick and offers a more substantial feel to your image. Available for prints sized 8x10 and up.

Float Plak Mount - Your images are mounted to a 1/8" tempered hardboard and protected with our premium UV laminates. A 3/4" frame is applied to the back of your image. The frame is recessed from the edges by approx. 2" on all sides and is hidden from view giving your image the appearance of floating off the wall. Available for prints sized 8x10 and up.



Foam and Ultra Mount:
Mounting your prints makes your images self-sufficient. It grants them the independence to stand on their own, to stand out, to look their best. Laminating protects your images while giving them an elegant and subtle finish. For more information, please click here.



Foam Board - a paper faced, medium density foam board





Ultra Mount - a heavy-duty board with 18-pt poly-coated paper liners. Ultra Mount panels are lightweight but durable and will not warp or bow like other foam boards.

Get to Know Us - Love is in the air - Part 2


We couldn't be happier about the fact that you share your stories about your experiences with our company in your tweets, posts, and in your conversations with friends and family. Not only are you helping us help more people, but you're also allowing us to spend more of our time working on improving our products and services, rather than spending time and money on traditional advertising.

Your recommendations mean a lot to us.  A conversation between friends, where you explain how happy you are with our services, is worth so much more than exposure to a paid advertisement.  That's why we don't spend a single dollar on paid advertisements.  Instead, we put 100% of our focus on making sure you are happy.  

We aim to provide you with a service that delights you and never takes you for granted.  If we succeed, we hope you'll tell your friends.  If we fall short, we hope you'll contact us to let us know so that we can take steps to make things right.

In this age of technology and faceless interactions, we think that the main factor that differentiates iPrintfromHome from other companies is our story, our company culture, and our commitment to running a business with a heart.  We want you to know who we are and why we love doing what we do.  Go to iPrintfromHome.com and click on "Our Values" and "Our Process" to get to know us a little better.

We work with lots of you to help make prints that you sell through your Etsy shops.  We recently joined Etsy Manufacturing and we are super excited about it.  As part of the Beta launch of their program, Etsy has offered photography services to some manufacturers.  For a little sneak peek behind the scenes, check out these images captured by Rachel Sifferd: Etsy Manufacturing Shoot

You can also review our Etsy Manufacturing profile here.  If you sell prints on Etsy and would like to post a recommendation to our profile, let us know and we'll send you a link.

As always, thank you for your continued support of iPrintfromHome.com!

Thanks,
Sara, George and the iPrintfromHome.com team
