I came across this guide to matting, mounting and framing and thought it was worth sharing:

Having just purchased a Mat cutter at Focus on Imaging 2009 the above article resolved the mystery for me of just how do you line all the pieces up.

We've been using one for quite a while on my Pics and the Wife's artwork and I have to say that once you get the hang you can do then really quite quickly and it does make all the difference when you show prints
