I am puzzled as to whether I should sign the mount or print itself. If I sign the mount then a customer can remove it - but do I really want this? I have seen other people's work where they have signed the actual print, artists do this so should we photographers?

If you want your signature to stay with the image then you have to sign the print. Other options would be to sign the back of the print if you feel the signature intrudes on the image or adding a watermark signature to the image in post processing that is part of the image every time a print is produced.
