    We are very pleased to announce that we are now able to offer "The Mounting and Laminating Handbook" by Chris A. Paschke, CPF GCF. This book is the picture framing industry resource for everything about picture mounting. This book covers everything from Dry Mounting to hinge mounting and spray mounting. It goes into great detail about the critical elements of mounting: Time, Temperature, Pressure, and Moisture. The book also goes into details of laminating. Chris Paschke is the Technical Mounting Editor for Picture Framing Magazine and author of the monthly column "Mastering Mounting" since 1991. She has also done consultation work with many mounting equipment and substrate manufacturers and has tested just about every product out there.

    The book has been available through framing trade organizations but now you can more easily purchase the book here:

    fdi, not a framing question per se, but I'm wondering if it might be possible to order some of this particular glass cut down to sizes I might use to construct a negative carrier. I'm asking because I've been experimenting over the years with different types of both optical and framing glass in negative carriers. GroGlass is one I've wanted to try but could never get a response from them directly.

    Apologies for the odd request but figured I'd ask anyway. What would be the smallest size one could order? Etc.

    You can order custom sizes directly on our website. In the size pull-down, just select the first choice which is custom and then you can enter you own dimensions. The website allows you to order down to 3x3 inches. We can do smaller, but we would still charge for 3x3 since it is all about the labor at that point.

    I just want to say that I ordered this book from Framer's Destination, and was very happy with it. It's the best resource I've found on dry mounting. I would highly recommend it.
