To the web. Research. Hmmm. A decent quality mat cutter costs about $100.
So, of course, the only rational thing to do was tear off to Central Square to go on a shopping spree at Pearl.
29" mat cutter w/straight and bevel cutting heads
9 mat boards of various colors
more acetate sheets
couple of pens and a new kneaded eraser
All for less than it would have cost to order 20 mats from the frame store. And now I have the wherewithal to make more mats for around a dollar per. *Much* better than $10 or $12 per. And I have something art-related I can do when I'm not feeling particularly creative :)
