    Mr. Fish! I see it now! Very clever. At first I thought it said, "Mr. Migraine from People Yelling at Him," but I must have been projecting.:)

    I'm planning to order from here later this week:

    I haven't used their services yet, though, and I'm interested to hear what others think.

    Welcome to TPF, by the way.

    Google "photo mat" for about a million places that sell precut mats. If you are going to be using a lot of them you'll find investing in a good mat cutter to be much cheaper in the long run. Notice I said "good" mat cutter. There are a lot of inexpensive mat cutting options out there, but in the end they are a pain in the butt.

    I've been using a Logan 450 mat cutter (handles up to 40" mats), and I love it. They go for about $150-ish (US).
