Hello and Maped instructions please?

Hello from Swindon,

I am very pleased to become a member of the Pixalo Community. As my first request, I have recently bought a second hand Maped 80 cm mount cutter without any instructions. Can anyone give me a brief rundown on how it is used?

Any help greatfully received.

Welcome to Pixalo jrapprentice

Not familiar with your mount cutter, but you might be able to find a manual if you Google for it. Here is just one result from my search:

http://www.alvinit.com/library/pubfiles/090110.pdf

Generally speaking mount cutters all work in the same way. You mark out and cut the mount board on the back to leave an aperture that is a little smaller than your picture so that when you stick the photograph to the mount it will provide a nice border and frame to your picture.

It is best to use special acid free mounting tape, but you can use any sticky tape. Just be aware that over time the tape might mark the picture and possibly eventually loose its adhesive qualities.

Hi Dabhand,

Thanks for the info but it seems the guidlines for cutting need to be offset in some way. I suppose I could find out by experiment and that is what I will do.

Best wishes

John
