Framed

I've had a frame waiting to go up on the wall for several weeks but the photo to go in it was slightly too large for a standard mat.  Today I fixed that by purchasing a 40" mat cutter on Used Victoria.

Before, I had to measure, mark and try to cut the window with a plastic angle cutter held up against a steel ruler which would invariably slip resulting in a wavy cut rather than a straight clean edge, or I would over cut.  But now everything is so slick.. The straight edges and guides make it so easy to measure and mark the mat and the cutting blades are automatically guided along the rail preventing and skipping or slippage.

The end result is that I can now cut custom mats for framing and can add matted and framed prints to my list of products.

I also got to hang that frame on my wall.
