Members Please Take Note!
The Club is intending to order mounts soon.
The committee are to organise another bulk purchase of cut mounts and backboards. A potential supplier has been sourced that supply these in both A4 and A3 apertures in Ice White, Soft White, Black, Ivory and textured Off White. All are white core. They can be supplied as just cut mounts in the following pack numbers 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 50 and 100. Ranging from £1.20 to 90p per mount depending on total quantity ordered of each option. Similarly Mount sets (consisting of - cut mount, full size back board & bag) ranging from £2.25 to £1.50 (prices are per single mount set in 5 pack and per single mount set in 100 pack). The minimum order from any one member therefore will be 5 mounts of a single aperture and colour unless two or more members get together to agree a split.
As usual we will start the new season with a mounting demonstration in the first few weeks to refresh or train new members. Several mounting methods will be shown including hinging which can make a mount re-usable and possibly the cutting of a mount with a stanley knife and steel rule (for steady handed and skilled only!).
Please consider how many and what colour you require an email will go out to all members with the available options.

Lined Up by Ron Eaton
For prospective new members the maximum mount and print size is 500mm x 400mm. Prints are required to be mounted as our stands do not otherwise support them. We encourage all members to use 500mm x 400mm mounts as standard however the image can be any size within that.
nb New members can be shown the various mounting methods if requested as we encourage the printing and mounting of images.
The PRINT evenings are always popular so why not come along if you are a prospective new member to see our work?
Do you fancy seeing how you might improve or get your images in front of an appreciative audience then please consider joining our club? We always welcome new members.
New members are especially welcome at any point in the season however why not take that step now at the start of our 2016-2017 season? We would all be very pleased to see you.

Whilst the club does not endorse any particular processing labs a number of members and visitors have had good service from DSCL - DS Color Labs and below is a link to their website. This is particularly useful to those that are unable or unwilling to print at home.
