Re: SUMUP Credit Card Reader

I used Sumup for years, thought it was the best thing ever because there was no monthly fee. A lot of times Sumup was very slow.

Damaged prints in tubes

I have a customer who sells a lot of large paper prints. She wraps them in light paper, then puts bubble wrap on either end of tube. Some prints arrive damaged on sides. What is best practice to ensure prints arrive safely?

Re: Workshop inspiration

Here is my cutting area and mountboard storage. These are two years old now, have added more since. To the right of the mountboard storage is glass sections, for different types.

Cassese 969 smart stop or no smart stop?

I'm purchasing a 969 and wondering what peoples opinions are on the smart stop, is it worth the huge price tag? We are bespoke framers, so not too many jobs of 100+ same frames. Will we regret not getting it?

Re: Jigsaw puzzles

Easiest method for me, place between two sheets of board, flip upside down and run strips of tape along the back, taping all the pieces together, then frame as normal

Re: Morso problem!

At the back of the morso there is a long metal bar with a bolt, you can adjust the height of the blades by twisting the bolt.
