All too often when one needs mat board for mounting, it can only be purchased in large sheets. Sizes here start at 8 by 10. You can also buy film, paper, and chemicals in quantity at discount prices. Everything for the darkroom too. Feel secure with its roster of brands: Kodak, Fuji, Agfa, and llford films and papers for starters. Check the bargain tables for "whatever."
