    Conservation Resources in Virginia. Ask them to pack it well. I don't know if the damage occurs at Nielsen or at C.R. but the first two shipments I got were dog eared like a st. bernard.

    I hadn't thought of Conservation Resources. I ordered my film boxes from them and they were great people to deal with. It looks like they beat the competition by about 2-3$ a board. Thanks for the heads-up. Robert

    I order my mounting and mat board from Dick Blick Art Supply in Illinois. Good prices, fast shipping, no minimum order like American Frame has.

    I have used redimat.com for the past few years. I have never had any problems and their prices are great.

    I, too, have used redimat with great results. They stock a very inexpensive mounting/backing board that, though it has a grey core, is acid free and worthy of not overly expensive prints. They also have a complete array of the best rag mat, and crescent select board at excellent prices. Since I cut my own windows, it's great to have good prices on blanks (which I detest cutting, 'cause I always mess up the full sheets into 16x20s and such).

    For the selection and pricing they come highly recommended. I prefer to not cut so just get pre-cut sized. Usually 18x24 for prints on 13x19 paper but for those that do cut their own the blanks of all sises are available.
