Mount Designer - Measuring

To make ordering as simple as possible you enter the overall size and
the exact size of the opening in the picture mount,
the software calculates the border widths automatically from these inputs.

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

Example 1 – How to order –
A picture mount for the full size of your picture.

1.1 – Measure the full width and height.


1.2 – Deduct 8mm from each size, you do this so the size sits behind the
opening (4mm all around) and cannot fall through!

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

1.4 – Determine the overall size of the picture mount by adding the
reduced size to the widths of the borders you require.

Example 2 – How to order –
A picture mount for a part of your picture.

2.1 – Measure the part width and height.

2.2 – Deduct 8mm from each size, you do this so the size sits behind the
opening (4mm all around) and cannot fall through!

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

2.4 – Determine the overall size of the picture mount by adding the
reduced size to the widths of the borders you require.

If you require a quote for a picture mount.

To do this we require a detailed 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.

We then follow the diagram exactly for quotation and manufacture.
