    Hi Folks,

    I do custom picture framing full time, and then took up photography about 3 years ago, I just got to thinking today... does anyone on here have a need for precut mats? Just curious if there was a market for that? Or if you buy them somewhere now what do you pay and for what size?

    I've bought them from Adorama who carries a variety of size and color options. Used to get them from a couple of local camera shops/art stores that since have gone out of business.

    The vast majority of the images I have printed have a custom aspect ratio and a variety of sizes.
    I order custom size metal frames and usually use a custom cut bottom weighted mat.
    I use archival mount/mat materials and archival framing techniques.
