All Panels have hanging slots on the backs and hang on a single screw or nail without the need for framing. Art Boards Archival Mounting Panels are designed to allow the artist to mount their own paper or canvas or finished art. The 3/8” panels are pre-glued with a reversible archival adhesive. The mounting panels are excellent for mounting blank paper for pastels, drawing, or printmaking, and for mounting finished art work and mounting canvas for painting. These mounting panels are also made extremely light in weight for plein air painters.
