I know this isnt directly a PC question but....

I have printed out a few pictures that i have taken on my recently purchased camera, and i want one or two on the wall in frames...."not a problem" you may say but,.

I am tryin in vain to find a compant online that sells, and stocks the mounting card that goes in the frame above the picture to give it a kind of neat border....does anyone know anywhere, im having a nightmare trying to find places.

many thanks

I get mine from an artist's materials shop(in Eastbourne).Not much good if you live in Glasgow,though.

What you need is called Artboard or Mounting Board, comes in loads of colours, and as Bruno says it is available from art shops. Try someone like Windsor and Newton in you search engine.

click here a good nation wide one and also any small Art or Craft shop should be able to help.

I'd be inclined to look in the Yellow pages for "Stationery Supplies" or "Artist supplies".
There's usually a similar type of shop in most Shopping Malls.
I've found that a sharp craft knife and a steel ruler also come in handy.

windsor & newton dont have em, and Hobbycrafts site is quite poor. :-(

AdventCalendar, took me less than 30 seconds to find what you want, click on framing and the sub category, or take a walk round the virtual store it's pretty good.

Djohn, v.good :-), but you cannot purchase from hobbycraft online, and they dont have a local store anywhere near me :-(

There should be an Art supplies shop near you.
