Computerised Mat Cutter

Post by Frame and Print » Thu 28 Apr, 2022 7:51 am

Hi All, I need advice I would like to acquire a computerised mat cutter but as never had one before i was after some guidance, I would like something that does not take too much space as my studio is limited.


Thanks Richard

Hi Richard

Both Valiani and Gunnar who make CMCs will be at the Guild Weekend - Saturday 14th May - at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Stratford upon Avon. They will have their software there to demonstrate what each machine can do, as well as being able to talk through all the different kinds of machines on offer. The Guild Weekend workshops start at 10.30am and finish at 3.00pm and are free to attend. They are open to Members and Non-Members. It is the largest UK gathering of framer training and information on offer this year.

If you're looking for second hand, I can highly recommend a Gunnar F1 Hybrid. It's been a game changer for us. Sarah at Gunnar UK has been incredible, helping us find a machine, getting us started and giving further training.
It does take up space but we managed to fit some mount storage underneath it by switching the stand around.
