    Default Mountboard cutting advice

    Please help. I am trying to do some unique cut out shapes on mountboard for wedding gifts. I even got a Cameo - which can't cope with light mount board. Also a nice bevel cut. How do people get their own designed shapes cut onto mountboard please - is the only way a local laser printer person and what price would you expect? I got a very expensive quote online. I want to do some material behind a shape that I have designed - so they have something unique. Thanks so much

    You could try any picture framers close to you, they're setup to cut mountboard. No idea on cost.

    Yes, unfortunately to cut mountbosrd into irregular shaprs its going to be a laser cut job, scalpels just wont do it, neither will most cutting machines.

    Thanks Dave. I have emailed a few laser cutters and got no luck - do you know anyone willing to do bespoke designs?

    I think they do bespoke, they’ve just in the last month installed a computerised cutter that looks like it cuts out text and all sorts....sent you a message.
