Hopefully everyone is now aware of the new mount-cutting service available to PhotoCraft members – all details are in the Members’ Area of the website including a simple method for fixing your print to the mount. The mounts are cut on a commercial quality mount-cutter so you can be sure they will be as good as you could get elsewhere.
Buying custom mounts for your pictures from commercial sources is expensive and a hassle. If you cut your own mounts, you will know that it is still a hassle and not easy to make a decent job of it. So forget all that and give yourself more time to concentrate on getting your pictures right by using our new fast and hassle-free service. You will make life easier for yourself and at the same time be contributing to club funds where all profits are destined.
The use of cropping in editing software is often underestimated; it is one of the most powerful tools in your armoury for readjusting the balance of a composition. If you are in the habit of buying pre-cut mounts from photographic or art suppliers, consider the advantages of having a custom mount that suits your picture. Don’t compromise the effectiveness of your image by forcing it to fit the aspect ratio of a pre-cut mount.
In addition to a standard window mount, if you have a picture you are especially pleased with, we are offering the option of cutting a double mount which can look really cool. These use more materials and take longer to prepare so cost more.
Prices to PhotoCraft members:
One single mount £4
A batch of 3 single mounts £10
One double mount £7
