Frame Designer - Measuring

To make ordering as simple as possible you only enter your
picture size, the software will calculate all other sizes and apply
all tolerances from this input automatically.

To demonstrate the process we have created the following examples
using this New York taxi scene.


Example 1 – How to order –
A picture frame with no mount for the full size of your picture.

1.1 – Measure the full width and height – this is the picture size you enter.

1.2 – The size you enter then fits ‘INSIDE’ the frame behind the rebate.

1.3 – Enlarged view of the size ‘INSIDE’ the frame behind the rebate.

 

Example 2 – How to order –
A picture frame with no mount for a part of your picture.

2.1 – Measure the part width and height – this is the picture size you enter.

2.2 – The size you enter then fits ‘INSIDE’ the frame behind the rebate.

2.3 – Enlarged view of the size ‘INSIDE’ the frame behind the rebate.

 

Example 3 – How to order –
A picture frame with a mount for the full size of your picture.

3.1 – Measure the full width and height – this is the picture size you enter.

3.2 – When you add a mount to the size on the ‘Select Mount’ step
the size is automatically reduced by 8mm – this is done so the size sits
behind the opening (4mm all around) and cannot fall through!

3.3 – Enlarged view of the size ‘BEHIND’ the opening in the mount.

3.4 – The border widths you choose are then added on to the reduced size.

3.5 – The mount then fits ‘INSIDE’ the frame behind the rebate.

3.6 – Enlarged view of the mount  ‘INSIDE’ the  frame behind the rebate.

 

Example 4 – How to order –
A picture frame with a mount for a part of your picture.

4.1 – Measure the part width and height – this is the picture  size to enter.

4.2 – When you add a mount to the size on the ‘ Select Mount ‘ step
the size is automatically reduced by 8mm – this is done so the size sits
behind the opening (4mm all around) and cannot fall through!

4.3 – Enlarged view of the size ‘BEHIND’ the opening in the mount.

4.4 – The border widths you choose are then added on to the reduced size.

4.5 – The mount then fits ‘INSIDE’ the frame behind the rebate.

4.6 – Enlarged view of the mount ‘INSIDE’ the frame behind the rebate.

 

Example 5 – How to order –
A picture frame for a picture that is already mounted.

5.1 – Measure the full width and height – this is the picture  size to enter.

5.2 – The size you enter then fits ‘ INSIDE ‘ the frame behind the rebate.

5.3 – Enlarged view of the size ‘INSIDE’ the frame behind the rebate.

 

If you require a quote for a picture frame.

Using the above information to work out your picture size, send an email
to us with the picture size along with the frame code and description,
your full name, full address and telephone number.

If you require a quote for a picture mount and a picture frame.

To do this we require a diagram that includes all
EXACT dimensions for manufacture (not the picture size)

The quickest and easiest way to do this is for you to draw a diagram on
paper and then to either scan or take a photograph of it and email it to
us along with your full name, full address and telephone number.

Example Diagram.

On the diagram be sure to include.

1 – The EXACT size of the opening in MM (not the picture size)
2 – The border widths in MM
3 – The total size of the mount in MM
4 – The mount description and code.
5 – The picture frame code and description.

We then follow the diagram exactly for quotation and manufacture.
