Multiple double mounts

Cutting a multiple double mount

Sometimes we have a multiple double mount to cut for a customer. To explain what this is our framer took pictures of the process.

We have an example below that came in last week. 

This includes openings for four pictures and in this case the customer has supplied a drawing of the layout and the picture sizes and the distance between each picture and around the edges.

Next our framer marks all the sizes of the openings on the back of the mount board in reverse, as the openings are cut from the back of the mount board.

Now this is going to be a double mount so our framer has to the mark up a second mount the same way but each opening has to be 1/4” bigger (all round) than the first one . As one mount will lay on top of the other as I will show later. 

Once all the openings have been marked out our framer can then start cutting all of the openings out using this mount cutter.

This is one of the cut mounts, I’m only showing one as they will look identical except that one will slightly bigger.

In this picture you can see that the mounts have been placed in to the frame ready for collection.
