Mount cutting buying etc

Post  Deggsy on Sun Jun 23, 2013 7:19 pm

Does anyone buy their mounts cut to order rather than cut their own ? If so any suggestions on a reasonably priced shop would be appreciated. Also, should you also back the print with mount board or another material ?

Mount cutting

Post  digitaljohn on Mon Jun 24, 2013 12:49 am

Evening Deggsy
I buy my mounts from eBay, one particular seller I buy from is  MOUNT SOLUTIONS they do mounts of all shapes and sizes, backing boards and cellophane envelopes
The problem with backing boards is they can double the weight of the print, not a problem if you are not sending your prints to external exhibitions, but can really increase postal charges if you are entering external exhibitions

I get my mounts and back boards from Cotswold mounts in Cheltenham. www.cotswoldmounts.co.uk You can collect your order or they will post to you.
I get them to produce mounts for me with two or three different sized windows. Generally I don't mount my prints with a backboard because of the extra weight, but I get a few back boards cut from the same material to 50 x 40cm so that I can produce some mats myself with odd sized windows.

Mount cutting

Post  romeojohn on Mon Sep 30, 2013 1:13 pm

I've now got myself a shiny new printer and starting to get some nice prints, (in my opinion). I have bought some cheap mount board and a cutter but the results are not brilliant and it's a bit of a pain (in fact a lot of pain). Do you others consider it worth doing your own boards or better to buy pre cut. One downside to pre cut is that you are limited to the sizes from the supplier. So if you want to do something a bit different it's not very practical.
Good quality mount cutters are very expensive and not sure it's worth the investment?
Does the club own a cutter and is it available to borrow or hire?
All advice and comments appreciated.
