    I have some prints coming and I dont really feel like making a nice donation to a frame shop to get my 20x30 prints on foam core.

    over matte ftw

    take a piece of mount board, tape the corners down, take another piece of matte board, cut out desired area to show through, use satin tape to adhere 2 piece of matte board at the top, and you're done

    you can get a 45º matte cutter for like $30 and a board that it attaches to for like 100.

    then buy your own matte board and save $$$

    I like the white on one side, black on the other, that way when you do the 45º cut the other color shows through on 1 edge
