(Another) mount cutting question

I'm running some pano prints off at 33 X 12" on my A3+ printer. I'm leaving a bit of border space to cater for adding mounts but I'm not sure if it's feasible to do custom mounts for this sort of size?

I'm guessing you'd be looking at using A0 board to cater for this sort of size? I don't have any cutting equipment so will I get a spanking if I ask a picture framers to cut the mounts?

Any thoughts or suggestions gratefully received

Re: (Another) mount cutting question

It should be no problem. A good picture framer should be able to make a frame and mount of any size and proportions - up to A0 for the mount.

Cheers

I know the frame won't be a prob but the printing layout went slightly pearshaped and I will really need a mount to go over the photo.

I thought the required mount size will be one of those "umm , well not sure, could be a difficult job" type conversations

Re: (Another) mount cutting question

Our local framer is good for this, just take the shot in, tell them exactly where the mound should go and Bob's your uncle. Shouldn't be too pricey either. If you're going to do alot of mounting, the Longridge mount cutters are brilliant, even set them up for left handers like me.

All the best people are cackhanded (notice which hand this smiley has? )

I did speak to our local framer and apparently they can do mount board up to 150 X 100cm so that's that sorted

I like the idea of doing my own mounts but I really do not have the space I'd like

Re: (Another) mount cutting question

Longridge all fits into a neat box, our house is pretty small, but it fits against the wall in the spare room (much too small a room to really call a study, but it's where we keep all the paperwork, computer & junk). Nice to see another leftie.

Re: (Another) mount cutting question

Just ordered the Longridge Duo Plus which cuts mount opening to 29" max, on basis I might want to do some Pano's at some point.
