Hi there,
could anybody recommend a supplier that sells mounting board - the size 20x16 inches - cream/white and black/white?

I have tried to find a wholesaler, but I cannot locate one. They only sell A1 size sheets...

Does anybody know of a supplier that sells them and cuts them?

I am willing to buy bulk, if they only sell larger numbers and it would be a B2B transaction.

Thanks for your advice,

Do you want mounting board or do you want mounts?

Not the same thing unless you want to cut your own mounts from mounting board, which is what I do.

I get mine from my local Jessops. They stock a range of sizes and colours White/Ivory and Black/Grey.

The Range have an excellent range of mounting board and pre-cut mounts and they are so cheap.

So far I've only bought my 20 x 16 mount board from Jessops, it's the only product I buy from them. They order me in 5 packs of 10, I reject the outer 2 packs for bashed in corners, and I buy the inner 2 or 3 packs. Next time I go back for more they try and sell me the damaged ones I rejected last time, and so it goes on. I'd like to dump Jessops completely. I'll have a look in the Range when I'm next near one, Bristol in a few weeks.

Whose had good experience of ordering mount board, 20 x 16 and 24 x 20, by mail order and the board arriving undamaged?

If it helps, I get my mount board (and backing boards) cut to size by my local craft paper suppliers, Alexander Paper Supplies at the Dagfields Craft Centre near Nantwich. I realise you're probably unlikely to be local enough to use them but it might be worth a trawl through your local Yellow Pages to find similar arts, crafts and paper suppliers.
