Re: Hello From Yorkshire (Lis and the obligatory whippet)

Hi Lis Welcome to the group! I have been looking at the cs199 and 299 lately, although sadly my equipment budget now appears to be zero this year, so I'm sticking with my trusty CS88 for the time being. I can recommend Estlite pricing software. I haven't looked back, once it was set up right. There'...

Re: How's it hanging?

I think Cleaver already has a copy of that sheet Steve.
Strap hangers from Lions are also a good alternative, when the frame is wide enough to take them, like sawtooth hangers.
The D rings are pointed upwards, directed at the hanging point to reduce stress on the d rings.

I'm confused. You've T hinge mounted a canvas with a window mount? Rather than restretch it onto stretcher bars and frame it?

Re: Upside-down cutting....

Whenever possible! The rebates are a pita and slow me down most of the time. Obviously it only works with flat faced mouldings.
I have been known to do it with simple flat prefinished mouldings on occasion. You just have to be methodical, careful and keep everything clean.

Re: Mount Recommendations – Student Artists Prints, Drawing paper / Giclee Ink

There are deckle edged rulers available. I have a number of artists who use them on all work intended for floating.

Re: What do you use as a mounting board in your matted frame?

As above, always an undermount the same quality as mount and always mounted on the the back of the undermount board, not to the facing paper (top layer) of the board. I always tape my sandwich of glass mount and undermount. Backboard on afterwards. Its calculated into the price. All fallouts and off...

Re: Mount Recommendations – Student Artists Prints, Drawing paper / Giclee Ink

Hi Jim, I would float mount them using archival gummed tape, Y hinges through the mountboard. Any spacer will work, paper wrapped, hand painted barewood or framespace. I would think 3mm glass or acrylic for this length and a brace or subframe behind. If these are printed and have embossed edges from...

Re: Spare parts for a Alpha 1M anywhere?

I was sent a sample of the egg box from Kite, muuuh..
If I didn't store so much work for collection, I wouldn't be so worried about wrapping, but the bubbles protected it until it's collected.
The more I buy from Lions, the less bubble I have to buy... Just sayin
