Longridge Mount Cutting Systems Mount Cutters, Mat Cutters, Passe Partout Cutters.

Which Size Mount Cutting System?

Midi, Plus or Maxi?

The Mount Cutter you need depends on the exterior size of mount board you use to mount your images. Identify the size of your largest work and consider the border width around it.

Eg. An image size of 400mm x 300mm (16” X 12”) with a 50mm (2”) border adds up to an exterior size of 500mm X 400mm (20” x 16”) so a MIDI system would suit.
