No. We do not print a catalog. As with the nature of our business, mouldings and mats are phased out regularly, making any printed catalog obsolete within days of print.
Instead, we are using our website as our real-time catalog. Mouldings and supplies we carry will be listed.
Mouldings and supplies that are being discontinued or have been discontinued will be tagged.
Please be mindful that our website primarily reflects items we stock. If you need to check a specific vendor, visit their website for their listing of discontinued items.
If you see a moulding you like on our website and need a corner, please contact us.
Most corners are $1 each.
