Having the right Art Supplies are an essential when it comes to mounting, displaying and framing your artwork. Mountboard is a thick and sturdy board that is ideal for presentations and framing artwork. It can however, be difficult to get a good clean cut, even when using a heavy duty utility knife. The best artists’ tool to use to cut Mountboard is a Mount Cutter.
A Mount Cutter is particularly useful for cutting picture mounts where you require a 45° bevelled edge to be cut on the inside of the aperture and a 90° straight edge to be cut for the outside. The 90° straight edge can also be used to easily cut down Mountboards to a custom size for presentation and display work. The Logan 90 Mount Cutter is ideal for this.
We stock Mount Cutters for all budgets and abilities from the beginner to the professional framer. If you are a student or a beginner then the Jakar Mount Cutters may be just right for you as they are more economical.
