Most online DIY frame supply companies (including mine) give very steep discounts at qty 10-25 for precut mat board. Even if you are buying uncut mat board locally without paying shipping the cost difference is not that great. If you factor in the cost of your time you may find it costs you more money to cut it yourself. Of course if every print you make is a different custom size and you cant take advantage of qty discounts on precut then yes it makes sense to buy the sheets where you can get the qty discount. Best price point on full sheets will be box qty which is normally 25 for 4-ply and 12 for 8-ply.
