Ordering Custom Frames

Before ordering frames for prints ordered from this website, please read the following:

  •  All print sizes have been meticulously selected to ensure compatibility with common frame sizes found in stores and online. Amazon and Michael's are great places to order standard frames, as pre-made frames are the most cost-effective.
  • All prints come with a 1" border, which means you will need to account for this when framing.
  • Should you choose a frame with matting, you will have to ensure the mat opening is the same as the print size you ordered (the border size will not affect mat opening size since the border will be behind the mat, used to attach the print to the mat). For instance, if you ordered an 8x10 print, you will have to find a frame that is either 10x12" if you do not want matting, or a frame with a mat that has an opening of 8x10 (typically in this case the frame will be 11x14").

Size Guide

  • All prints come with a 1" border, which adds 2" to each dimension. For example, an 8x10" print will actually be 10x12" with the border, a 12x18" print will actually be 14x20", and so on.
  • Borders not only serve an aesthetic purpose, but also help when it comes to matting and framing.
  • If you are unsure of what size to order for your space, a good rule of thumb is to measure your space, determine your frame size, and ensure the framed print will not consume the entire wall space or look out of place when hanging.
