Picture frame - Measuring guide

To make ordering as simple as possible the system only asks you to enter the exact width and height of your picture or part picture  during the order process if any tolerances are required the system will apply them automatically.

It is important to note :

Full.image width & height
How to Measure your Picture

If your picture is printed on paper and you wish to frame the whole picture, measure the exact width and height of the picture. This will be the size to enter as your picture / image size.

If you only require a picture frame and no mount we will manufacture and send you a frame to fit this size.

If you require a mount, this size will be reduced by -4mm all around and the opening in the mount will be cut this exact size.

This is done to ensure the opening in the mount sits just over your picture and the picture cannot fall through the opening.

The mount will then go all around ( be added to ) this opening, exact opening + Border left-right-top-bottom.
