Pre-cut Mount board and Frames for Exhibition

Postby Iggy » Mon 08 Apr 2019, 11:35

Caje Moniz is looking to buy pre-cut 40x50cm mounts with window, possibly 12x8 inches or 12x9 inches for the Exhibition.
This was discussed at the club a couple of weeks ago but I did not take any notes as I cut my own.
Also, where does one get the Photo Frames suitable for the Exhibition?
Thanks,
Iggy

I have bought from Paper Spectrum in the past and they offer a good quality product. I posted some information a while back, although the discount offer has long expired. Maybe if there is enough interest, we might be able to generate a sufficiently large order to get something off. At the very least, it would be possible to share an order so that there is only one delivery charge. It will be done to someone else to organise as I have sufficient for my own needs.

Thanks Mike.
To summarise for ease of finding the products:
SPECTRUM offer A4 STANDARD ANTIQUE WHITE mount board (500x400mm) PRE-CUT PICTURE WINDOW MOUNTS 1400MIC
Centrally positioned window to fit an A4 image, actual size 19.0 x 28.0 cm. White core. Acid free. 5 sheets per pack. £12.99 inc VAT
https://www.paperspectrum.co.uk/a4-standard-antique-white-pre-cut-picture-window-mounts-1400mic-3726-p.asp
Should work with prints that are 12 x 8 and 12 X 9 inches too ( 20.32 cm, x 30.48 cm, 22.86 x 30.48 cm) as long as important parts of the image do not go all the way to the edge of the print. One looses between 1 and 2 cm of image all round behind the mount.
Other companies might offer windows that are cut to personal requirements. See ebay?

SIM LAB do offer A4 print size @ 0.65p + VAT

IKEA does have RIBBA Black Print Frames, £7, 40 x 50 cm
It does come with mounting board to take image 40 x 30 cm, that needs to be replaced for smaller prints.

Good luck for getting everything ready for CCC PHOTO 2019!

Hullo, why not organise your images to the size of the windows and order them from spectrum giving a little area around the image to look good.
That should do the trick
