Mount Cutters - Show Deals


Mount cutting systems come in all shapes and sizes: from a simple rule and separate cutter through to top of the range, professional system.  Similarly, the range of prices will also vary enormously.  But the good news is that we will have that full span of equipment on show, at Focus 2013.


We can advise you on what would be your best choice based on the range / volume of work you need to do, whether  as a hobby (presenting your own images) or with a more commercial imperative, all matched to the budget you had in mind.  We can show you how each operates and where increased cost delivers in terms of performance.


The even better news is that we have probably the widest choice of systems and there will be Focus Prices on many of them.


Why not bring our store guide PDF Which Mount Cutter do I need? along to the show and see where there are savings to be had. Visit us on Q15

Tools of the Trade

What tools do I need?Knowing just what you need to make picture frames can take some thought.  The three essentials will always be:

  1. mount cutter
  2. saw / guillotine (for cutting mitres)
  3. joiners / underpinners

In each case there will be some alternatives and, as with the mount cutters, your choice will depend on a number of factors. 


On our stand will be staff, used to working with the full range of kit, who can help steer you through the possibilities and help you put together the kit you need.  See what the variations are from a BASIC set up to a PROFESSIONAL kit.  

And, as always some show specials apply.

DIYframing Working with Photo Clubs.

Presenting Photography Seminar - 64.jpg

Focus on Imaging 2013 will be the first time that DIYframing is offering its expertise to Photography / Camera clubs as a clear package.  In the past, it has been an informal arrangement that has worked out reasonably well and been relatively successful.


But, rather than leave things to chance, DIYframing is officially launching this service by inviting members of camera clubs or photographic societies (committee or general membership) to take time to visit our stand. We can provide you with some information for your group and you can register an interest in a visit from DIYframing.


The core of what is on offer is an evening about “The Art of Presenting Photography”. The focus is mainly about using mounts to display images to their best effect, and will fit into a typical 2 hour club night with, of course, the vital break for coffee midway!


In making this an official “training package”, we are confident that there will be a strong uptake: make sure your club gets a look in on stand Q15. Read More

Thank you for your continued support.

Until next time...
