Mat Cutting Company and its sister business, The Card
Framing Company, have been operating for the past 15
Our Gallery in the historic Rocks area in Sydney, known
as the Card Framing Company, was recognised internationally
for its expertise in the matting and framing of Cigarette
and Trade cards. In the early days all of our mats were
hand cut, but in 1997 we purchased a Gunnar Computerised
Mat Cutter. This gave us the ability to cut very complex
designs, and confirmed our reputation as the market
leader for high quality card framing.
The Gunnar also opened a new line of business by giving
us the ability to design and cut a huge range of high
quality picture mounts at very competitive prices, and
from this The Mat Cutting Company was born.
In 2003 The Rocks Gallery was closed and we relocated
to Victoria. The Mat Cutting Company is now a leading
supplier of high quality computer cut mats to the picture
framing industry, as well as to photographers, artists,
memorabilia manufacturers and the corporate sector.
We also still supply what are arguably the best Cigarette
and Trade Card mounts available, to customers in Australia
as well as NZ, the U.S, Europe and the U.K.
Our state of the art equipment gives us many advantages
when cutting your mats - accuracy, speed and consistency
just for starters! It also means that there is no such
thing as a “standard” mat. Whilst we do
encourage our customers to use standard photographic
sizes where possible, this relates to the outside dimension
of the mats and simply means that they will fit into
a huge range of well-priced standard, off the shelf
However, window size and shape
are anything but standard. We will ask you the size,
style and number of windows needed for your artwork,
and then cut the mats to your exact requirements. This
effectively means that you will receive a high quality
product, custom cut to suit your artwork, but at a very
competitive wholesale price.
This forms the basis of our business – consistently
high levels of quality, both in product and in service,
along with very competitive quantity based pricing.
