Tape: Double stick foam tape provides a simple means of attaching portrait plaques to just about any flat surface. You can order your Art Tiles with tape applied – all you need to do is precisely locate the plaque, ensure the surface is absolutely clean, remove the protective wax paper and press the tile firmly into place for a very durable bond.
Shadow mounting: create a striking effect by mounting your portrait with a half inch offset from the wall. You can order tiles with spacers, ready to install.
Grouting: Portrait plaques can be grouted in the same way that ceramic tiles are. Either get a certified tiler in your area, or follow the instructions provided at one of the following sites.
