    Where to buy Gatorboard?

    I'm looking at buying a bunch of sheets of 11x14 gator foam, also called gator board.

    I've come across this site:
    http://foamboardsource.com/

    Is this a reputable merchant?

    If all else fails I can have a local shop mount my prints to the board, but I'd much rather do it myself and save about 60%...plus the local shop scratched my prints last time.

    Don't know about the reputation of that shop but you should be able to pick some up at Ben Franklin or Michael's or other arts and crafts store.

    Never dealt with that company before so I can't comment on them. Another option for you is to order your prints already mounted to the gatorboard. www.MPIX.com will mount the prints for you. I get almost all of my prints from them, but I haven't ordered any of the standouts yet.

    $10 to mount an 11x14, $9 to print it on the metallic paper I like so $19

    If I have Adorama print it and then a local shop mount it, the total cost is about $15 ($2 for print*, $3 shipping, $10 mounting)

    If I buy the gatorfoam and do it myself, the total cost will be about $8-10 depending on what kind of deal I get.

    I'll check a crafts store.

    *I'm going to pre-purchase my prints through Adorama, 50 for $100
