What We Ordered
We opted for a Lambda C-Type print onto 24x20in Fuji Crystal archive paper on an MDF block mount. We also chose to have our print laminated for extra protection and with a matte finish (at £10), before the whole thing was mounted onto 18mm thick MDF board with the edges painted black. To finish, two secure hanging brackets (at £7) were also attached to allow for hanging straight out of the box.
After we’d chosen our desired print size, print type and mount choice from the Genesis-Digital extensive catalogue, we placed our order. This can be done in a few different ways, either by phone, post, email or by direct upload through the website. We chose the latter option and uploaded our print image, along with full details of our order, via the provided form. As part of the bespoke ordering process, Genesis-Digital ask its customers to contact them directly at the end of the ordering process to discuss details, such as hanging brackets, laminate options and final payment, which we did, finding the process quite reassuring.
The print arrived with multiple layers of protective padding and we were impressed with just how well the colour tones had held, showing a clear, attractive finish. Flipping the picture over revealed a slightly messy backboard where excess black paint from the edges had bled onto the rear MDF surface, but when hung up, this wasn’t noticeable at all, thanks to the clever sunken brackets that allowed it to sit flush to the wall.
With all of our additional extras added together, it brought the total cost of our print to £120.80 - including a £20 post and packing charge.
This MDF block mount is a simple, attractive and contemporary method of printing, which is suitable for almost any image type or style of house.
