I agree with most of the other commenters: the machine and a professional do it better. Little known tip: Chain arts & crafts stores like Hobby Lobby and Michael's will cut you a custom mat for just a few bucks, even if you're not buying a custom frame. I usually bring in my print or photo, pick out a premade frame from the sale or clearance section, and then ask the person at the framing counter to cut me a mat to fit. I think the last time I did this, the cut mat cost around $6.
How To: Cut a Mat for Framing Artwork

My partner is mildly allergic to dogs, and our two enormous lab mixes shed like crazy. While we don't allow the dogs on the couch or bed, we do have one loveseat pretty much reserved for their use, along with two very comfy dog beds. The result is that the small living room of our cozy rental house has more options for dog seating than for humans. Silly, I guess, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

This is right down the block from me! Very cute place. The food is good too, though pricey (and the waitstaff still seem to be working out the kinks). They even have outdoor seating so I was able to bring my dog.

Can you give me any info about the long shallow shelf with the artwork sitting on it? It looks like a perfect solution for my new space.
