Picture Frames - measuring advice

How to measure your artwork/photo for a picture frame (without a mount)

Firstly you need to measure your artwork from edge to edge in millimeters and enter the exact size in the width and height boxes provided in the design studio.

To convert inches to millimeters simply multiply by 25.4. For instance 20inches would be 20 x 25.4 = 508mm.
24.5inches would be 24.5 x 25.4 = 622mm. Don't worry about anything after the decimal point when doing your calculation.

If your artwork/photo/print measures 800mm x 600 you would enter 800mm x 600mm in the height and width boxes provided in the design studio. If your image has a border and you would like to include the border  then you need to measure the whole of the artwork including the border and enter your sizes in the boxes provided. Your frame will then be made to accommodate the whole of your artwork.

Once you have entered your sizes you can then select your frame. We are connected to our suppliers database so if a frame is out of stock it will be flagged as "Out of stock" with an expected date when it will be back in stock. You can still order out of stock frames as long as you are happy to wait for them to come back in stock. Some of our frames are only suitable for smaller sizes. If you try to order a frame that is not suitable for the size your require our software will reject it and ask you to choose another frame.

Once you have selected your frame you need to select the glazing type you require and then proceed to the checkout. If once you get to the checkout you change your mind you can click on the “Edit my order” button to be taken back to your order to make the changes you require. Once in the shopping cart you can also change the quantity you require if you so wish.

3. Always double check your sizes in the checkout before proceeding with your order.
