Re: best way to mount personal work

Are you in a college town? Maybe someone from the university art dept can
help mount it for the cost of supplies? Our university has a graphics dept.
and the head of that dept. will allow me access to some of their mounting
equipment or help me for little or no cost. Just an idea.
