Slide Mounts Disappearing?

My long time source of 6x7, 645 and 6x6 slide mounts is telling me that I'm nearly his only customer. Is no one mounting their slides anymore? I use Image Innovations (slidescribe.com) and I sure would like to see them keep selling mounts. They are one of the better photo accessory companies in the US.

there aren't many alternates out there ( I rarely mount MF I scan it and store now)

Gepe has Glass mounts available in a few spots (BH and Adorama in addition to GEPE themselves)

None of my local film processing labs will mount MF slides for you. I asked and they do not have or can not order the mounts. 35mm is no issue of course.

They will keep longer in archival quality viewing sleeves and a lot easier to scan like that too (no cropping caused by the mount).
There is a place in the US... name escapes me at the moment; I have bought archival card masks from them years back... They sell card masks (Black Mask transparency files by ClearFile). These are an excellent alternative for mounting individual frames.
