Since buying a mat cutter about 8 years ago, I've more than recouped the investment in it by saving the cost of custom orders. As I tend to size prints to best suit the image, having the option to cut the mounts for them individually has been a huge advantage. Besides, I've learned a new skill I'd not have otherwise known. It's not really very difficult, but there is a learning curve, and doing it well takes a lot of practice, and the willingness to sacrifice some mat board without shedding too many tears.
