About our Wizard CMC picture mount cutting machines

We have always used Wizard CMC machines (CMC stands for Computerized Mount Cutter). We have an 8500e-SBT which is a state of the art American-made computer controlled system designed specifically to cut picture and photo mounts (many other countries refer to them as "mats").  Our latest machine was made in Mulkito, Washington, and arrived with us via Wizard EU in Germany where the technicians re-check and calibrate the machine after it's transatlantic journey. Then onward by road from Germany to the far west of Cornwall and installed by engineer from the UK distributors.

Our last wizard (a CMC8000 model) had cut over 1.5 million, and was immensely reliable, with virtually zero down-time meaning that we have been able to offer a consistently reliable service to our customers.  Our current machine operates 6 or 7 days a week often from 6 or 7 am through till 11pm or later, depending on the orders received that day. 

Our 8500-SBT has an "instant-switch" blade system for cutting straight (90 degree) outside edges on your mounts.  This is a feature which customers love, and puts our mounts in a different league to the many newer suppliers on the internet who have bought cheaper mount cutting machines which can't cut straight edges.

Wizard CMC machines can cost a fair bit more than most others, and our software comes at a price which makes your eyes water, but we think it's worth it for the superb quality mounts and top class reliability this machinery offers. The superb software allows us to very quickly input custom sizes, or retrieve stored designs for standard sizes, create layouts and arrays for cigarette cards, tea cards, collectors cards, photo name frames etc. Wizard machines are one of the truly "heavy duty" CMCs, in fact they were one of the first. We wouldn't use a lesser machine.

A specialised picture mount cutting company?  No, actually we are a picture framing business, about a half of our work is supplying picture and photo mounts from our internet sites. We have a framing shop in Penzance, West Cornwall and have been in business since 1994, but a very large part of our business is making and supplying top quality photomounts and picturemounts to UK customers.

We have been cutting mounts for more than fifteen years, at first supplying by "mail order" from a printed catalogue, where customers could post an order with a cheque or postal order, and for the past ten or eleven years we have been supplying online taking payment by card or PayPal.

Although we are a small family business, we do make a LOT of mounts!  We are often imitated (plenty of new competitors copy everything from our products to our prices). We wrote our own Custom Mount Price Calculator (you may have seen another business using an out-dated version of this). Our latest online price system now calculates discounts for you based on any quantity however small -even ordering just two mounts -the more you order, the better the discount.

We try to go that little way extra for our customers.  If you need it in a hurry, let us know, we can usually help. (Just email us, or phone us during shop hours if you need any help or have an enquiry).

You get your mounts with well presented square cut outsides, a choice of standard or conservation board, free archival tape to fix your pictures in conservation mount orders, double mounts come to you assembled together. Lots of features which others will charge extra for, or not offer at all.  We pack our orders very well and offer an unconditional 7 day money back promise if you are not totally satisfied with your order. For your peace of mind all orders are shipped signed-for, even small orders which are recorded delivery. Most other orders to the UK ship with FedEx, and a small number by Euro Road Service.

 

Delivery Orders over 40 shipped by Fedex (highlands/Islands we use parcelforce 24/48). Under 40 we normally send by Royal Mail postal recorded/signed for delivery. We offer a friendly and helpful service to customers at our frame shop counter, or by phone, and have 1000s of satisfied customers throughout the UK.

Money Back Promise We were the first to offer custom size picture mounts with prices calculated on-line with no minimum order, and have always offered a no-quibble money back promise on everything we make. If you are not totally satisfied with your order we will refund you right away, and also refund the P&P.

Mount Cutting: Our main mount cutting machine is a Wizard 8500E-SBT CMC, which can cut all types of bevelled mount window shapes, multiple apertures, cigarette card arrays, names, letters and also cut art, accents and mount decoration, and our staff are highly experienced in picture framing and cutting mounts. The Wizard machine is made in the USA, and our 8500 SBT is one of only a handful in the UK. (SBT stands for Switchblade Technology, which is an innovation that allows us to very quickly change from bevel to straight cut for the outside edges)  Unless otherwise stated, many of our newer competitors with cheaper machines will not be giving you straight cut outsides.

 

Discounts: Our custom mount price calculator now gives discounts for quantity, even just 2 or more.

Mount boards: We offer you a choice of conservation or standard mount board. Basically this refers to the boards being "Acid Free" or better quality with crisp white bevels that do not discolour, and which offer better protection for your picture, photo or print, or "Neutral pH" with a creamier coloured core and a lesser degree of long term protection.  So you can easily decide on the right mount for your picture.

Terms: You are fully covered by the distance selling regulations, plus you are fully covered by our online processors, PayPal. In addition to our money back if not happy guarantee, you can always ask for a replacement for any damaged or incorrect item (mistakes and accidents in transit can happen!).

We always call everyone back who leaves a number, usually quite promptly.  If there is a problem with your online order and you are phoning to get it sorted out, it's useful to email us first if possible, so we can have a look at your original order and save you some time.  Contact Information
