Having large panoramic overmats cut professionally with computerized machine isn't as expensive as most people think. The price for a single 20x60 mat with a 16 1/2x50 window is less than $50, and less as the quantity increases. Where things get expensive is in the shipping. But, if it were my time, I would much rather have someone cut the windows for a few dollars more than the actual cost of the blank boards.
