Professionally mounted and sealed, solid food styling boards and photography backdrop surfaces

Shipped worldwide by special order - please click here for details!

All of my A1 printed backdrop designs can be professionally mounted onto highest grade 12mm MDF and sealed with a matt polyurethane varnish to create a solid, long lasting, wipe clean, water resistant photography surface, ideal for food styling.


How to order

Simply add your mounting options to your backdrop selection on the paper backdrop product listings before adding to your basket.   

Single faced mounted and sealed backdrops cost £25 plus the cost of your backdrop design.

Double faced mounted and sealed backdrops (with designs on the front and back of a single sheet of 12mm plyboard) cost £40 plus the cost of your backdrop designs.

If you select a double faced mounted backdrop board you will be asked to select your design for the second side before adding to your basket.


Lead time

These items are made to order - please allow around 5 - 7 working days for your boards to be dispatched.  (If you need them sooner we may be able to help - please contact Sophie here.)



  • A1 size - approximately 594 x 841 mm x 12mm - finished board sizes may vary slightly due to the wood cutting process and print/cutting tolerances.
  • We always line up two edges (a long and short edge) perfectly but the design may be a couple of millimetres shorter than the board on the other edges.
  • We may also 'soften' the corners to round them off a bit as this will make the applied paper sheet safer from knocks on the corners.
  • Mounted on 12mm high quality, FSC MDF
  • Sealed and waterproofed with water-based, matt polyurethane varnish - for minimal sheen and no discolouring
  • Store flat out of direct sunlight or in the bespoke packaging provided
  • Designed, printed and mounted in the UK
  • Fully sustainable and recyclable packaging - zero plastic! 


Please understand that these items are human-manufactured and whilst every care is taken, both before and during the process, to maintain a clean environment and create a perfect finish, sometimes unavoidable surface imperfections, small bumps caused by dust particles or damp spots in the wood can occur upon drying and sometimes up to 3 days later.  

Whilst these will most likely go unnoticed on light and medium coloured backdrops, they may be visible under darker prints which catch the light more.

Of course we have strict quality standards and take the integrity of our product and your investment in it (and reliance on it) very seriously so we will never send anything we wouldn't be fully happy with ourselves, but if you feel we have sent you something that is not up to scratch for your photography requirements please do let us know so we can put it right for you and check our materials.  

Our usual 30 day no quibble guarantee applies to all of our products including mounted boards. If you have any problems to report please quote your order number and the wood batch code on the edge of the board so we can investigate the rest of our stock if necessary.  Thank you!
