Multi-aperture photo mount

Post by Bagpuss » Wed 05 Jun, 2013 9:45 pm

I've got a couple of multi-aperture mounts to do tomorrow, each aperture 10cm x 15cm for a load of photos and a nameplate.( see photo below )

Just wondering how everyone else would mount the photos ? Could either place each photo onto a single sheet of sticky board ( a bit long winded, cutting out holes for each photo ). Alternatively I could drymount photos onto a sheet of conservation card (500 microns) just to stiffen each photo and then tape each photo onto the back of the photo mount OR I could stick each photo onto a 5mm Foamcore board and lay the mount over the Foamcore board... It's late, perhaps it'll be clearer in the morning ... :clap:

You've got a CMC so using the same file as you used to cut the mount, enlarge the apertures to the size of the paper and emboss that on to your mounting board to position the photos and your multi ap mount will drop over it perfickly.

Or as Robo says but use a piece of that sticky board with the peel off paper and set your blade depth so that is just goes through the paper.

Peel away all the rectangles you have cut and stick down your photos.

This is what Ultimat Frames offer to pro photographer customers http://www.ultimatframes.com/products/mounts/fastmount

Even better if self-adhesive board is your way to go - plots the positions and cuts the release paper - two birds!

I suppose that once your photos are stuck in place you could peel off the rest of the release paper and stick your multi-aperture mount down too.

I would use the same cut file again and cut out the 2 offending pics and simply swap them over, not really I tell her to p*** off.
