    Hi all.

    I know this has been asked before, and I don't want to contravene ephotozine's policy on advertising, but can anyone help with a mountboard supplier? I need some standard 11"x14" board, with a 12"x8" aperture, backboard and bag but I only need about 20 of them initially. The problem is that the high street is way too expensive, and most on-line suppliers seem to charge a heck of a lot for postage.

    Can anyone help?

    I use Cotswold Mounts (http://www.cotswoldmounts.co.uk/)
    Postage is about £7 - which is on the high side, but not obscene. On the other hand, their mount prices are very good.

    The mounts need to be shipped carefully to avoid damage.

    .

    You might think £7 is high until you see how well they package their mounts.

    I use 50 x 40 with a 39.5 x 29.5 aperture and Cotswold charge £1.23 each and (I think) 62p for a back board and about 10p for a bag.

    I have hunted around for a good supplier at a good price and Cotswold are the best (by far) that I have found.

    It can take several minutes and a variety of cutting tools to get into a package from Cotswold!

    Just a wee, extremely minor, but negative point about Cotswold - you can't order online. You have to speak to a real person on the phone during office hours. However, you can make up your order from the info on their website and have it all to hand when you phone. And the guys at the other end of the phone are extremely pleasant and helpful.

    Thank goodness there is a polite and helpful real human being at the end of the phone line, unlike anywhere else one phones redirected by countless menus only to be frustrated and hanging on for another endless version of greensleeves.

    Well done Cotswold !!
