Custom hanging options available including standoffs or keyholes upon request. Please visit the care section for hanging instructions on how to hang an AlumaPlaq. AlumaPlaqs are not recommended for sizes smaller than 8”x10” in order to keep the French cleat hanger concealed and recessed. Wire hangers can be added to most AlumaPlaqs; however, DuraPlaq® does not warranty or recommend this hanging method due to instability in hanging.

A swirled border can be added around the image to create a striking alternative to an aluminum matted print, please specify overall size and desired image and border dimensions if applicable when ordering. Please note that when providing artwork or image files, signatures and crucial components of an image or print should be a minimum 1/4” from the edge to accommodate trimming during the production process.
