    Mats and mat cutters

    I'd like to start mounting my prints.

    Who has a mat cutter and can suggest where to get a good one and good supplies of mat boards?

    Any suggestions as to how to learn this art?

    Thanks!

    I have used this one for 15 years but they might be a little difficult to find in a local shop now.

    You can buy board at any art supply shop.

    I have a Matmaster cutter from FrameCo, bought from a local art supplies store, but they also do on-line. Not cheap but is good.

    My wife attended a 2 day course run by the Sydney Community College. There may be equivalents available in Adelaide. She also attended a course run by Frameco. They run courses in different areas of Australia ( including Adelaide ). The information is available on their site.
    Constructive critique of my photos is welcome and appreciated.

    I bought the stuff but always had troubles with the corbners, but I was just using a rule and cutter - the corners always ended up as little crescents. Do those matt cutters like the altosezmat and the Matmaster overcome this problem?
