    Another vote for Framing Supplies, I buy all my framing supplies from them except wood frames and glass.

    You might want to try Jayeness Moulding in Seattle. They are a wholesaler so you'll need to have a Wash business license to purchase from them. They have Bainbridge Artcare matboard (and glass, moulding, etc, everything else you'll need). They actually deliver to the Bremerton area once a week (for additional 10.00). There website is lousy (and they admit it needs work. www.jayeness.com) but you can give them a call and see if they can help you out with your framing needs. You'll love the Fletcher 2100; great mat cutter. Vance Gese

    So many great recommendations. Thanks all!

    The Fletcher 2100 I am getting does have the right squaring arm as well as measuring stops. From what I have read this will be a very good mat cutter.

Any recommendations for quality 4 and 8 ply mat board at good prices would be much appreciated.

    Check out www.documounts.com, they're in Portland Oregon and have a store (address per website) you could pick up your orders and save shipping $$$. I get all my framing supplies from them, they're really good to work with. I'm in Issaquah, WA.

    Another plug for Valley Moulding. I also love the fact they do their own local deliveries at very reasonable rates. United Mfgrs. used to be a good supplier for me, but they never seem to have my items in stock and they closed their west coast warehouse. Shipping cost from NY on a box of 32x40 boards is quite high.

    I buy Crescent at Hobby Lobby when they have 50% off deals -- usually at least once a month. Dirt cheap for the thinner stuff. If I need thicker board I go to a local frame shop which is happy to sell me sheets, but it costs a bit more. I don't use very much thicker than ordinary Crescent board, though.

    I used documounts for a series of precut mats for a show. The cost to have them cut mats for 11X14 or 10X15 in 16X20 was about $0.20 more than for me to just buy the board locally and I think the foam core cost less cut than for me to buy whole sheets and cut them myself. I was buying 32 mats at once, but I'd definitely order from them again.
