    Does any one know where to get the pixel mounting strips in Australia. All the US sites I’ve looked at don’t ship to Aus. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Ben

    There is a group buy for Boscoyo on one other page too to save on freight. I found a place in WA that would make the strips however the cost is cheaper with freight from Boscoyo.

    Unfortunately the freight is the same with strips. Weight is the issue

    I found these strips at Bunnings.
    They are for plaster walls/corners and will hold pixels great.
    Just insert at the desired separation.
    They're cheap, and come in 3m lengths for about $5.
    I used tin-snips to cut them in half lengthwise.
