Matting Dimension Calculator
Version 1.0.0 for Excel95 or Excel97


Matting Dimension Calculator helps to determine the measurements needed to cut foam board and mat boards used in matting and framing pictures, art, etc.  One of the hardest parts (or at least most confusing) was determining the measurements needed for the cuts. We then decided to develop a program to calculate and print a drawing with the needed measurements. Currently the program will only calculate dimensions for double mats.
