Matting or mounting the print in a card border is done quite cheaply by most picture framing shops.
FWIW my mat cutter cost $15,000 and I'd bet it cuts better than the, "Logan Compact Classic mat cutter", did.
You really do get what you pay for.
I currently use a Epson 4900. IMHO a photographer needs to be able to print his own images or have it printed under his direct supervision.framer
The differences between a mintor and a print are IMHO always going to be there even if your properly calibrated, having the light source behind the picture is never going to be the same as having it reflecting off the picture.
For everyone info,A good window coating is better than any special uv glass you can put over your prints. The best window coating filter out IR + a wider range of UV than UV glass alone. You can also use UV glass for extra protection if you want. A thing to understand about UV glass is the limited UV range that it filters. In bright light it offers almost no protection. Prints should be displayed in subdued, regular room, light. Real photos and photos from good printers, today, should last 30-100 years without noticeable fading. UV protection only slows fade under the correct condition but never stops it. framer
I ran a nozzle check and test pattern print every 3 days when not printing and still bricked an epson 4900 with the black nozzles hopelessly blocked (when switching from matte to photo black). New jets are more expensive than I can buy a new printer for, since they are not user replaceable, with no guarantee that It will not brick again.I am two strikes with Epson and will never buy one again, nor recommend one to anyone who does not print every day.My HP z3100 (24 inch) soldiers on with no issues at all and I have just bought a Canon 13 in. printer for sheet paper....
