How are Mat Boards cut?
Someone from our staff programs a sophisticated mat board cutting machine that can cut in a multiple of different configurations and combinations. The machine can cut a single mat at a time, multiple mats at a time, and mats with multiple openings and positions. Different opening types, lettering, embossing, designs, text, signatures and a host of other possible options are available.
Mat boards with an opening window purchased on our website will automatically have a beveled edge, which is typically a 45 degree cut. In addition, most of the outside cuts will also typically be beveled for speed in production. Mat board Backings may or may not be a strait cut (depending on order size, type and production techniques).
Special Custom Orders also have a beveled outside cut unless you specify otherwise when ordering.
Typical tolerance for mat cuts are +/- 1/16".
