Frequently Asked Questions
How Does This Work?
Simply enter the size of the artwork in the box. Select full inches and fractions (if needed) from the drop-down menus. Then carry on through the succeeding steps, selecting the frame, mat, glazing and backing from the drop down menus.
What Width of Frame Should I Choose Given the Size of My Artwork?
This is not written in stone, but this gives you some guidance...
8"x10" or smaller 1-1/4" or narrower
How Do I Figure Out My Overall Frame Size?
You don't have to. Just enter the size of your artwork in the box. We will cut a mat with a 2" border. So the mat will increase the overall frame size by 4" on each dimension.
Basically, if you include a mat, your frame size will be 4" larger than your artwork size on each dimension. For example, if your artwork is 16"x20" your frame size will be 20"x24"
If you don't include a mat, your frame size will be the same size as your artwork.
What If I Want a Bigger Frame?
You may notice that the calculator only accepts artwork up to 35 x 32. If you want a larger frame, no problem. All of our frames are available in sizes up to 60"x60" - just not via the custom framing section of our website. To order largers frames navigate to the Picture Frames section of our site, specifically to the area entitled Picture Frames Cut to Size and Ready for Assembly.
Do I Need Any Tools for This?
We offer an EZ-Finish Mounting Kit that provides you everything you need to mount the artwork, hold the contents in the frame, and hang it.
No. Fully assembled frames, while convenient, are costly to ship and prone to damage in transit, leading to add-on charges for insurance and handling. We ship sectional frames which are quick and easy to assemble and since they ship broken down cost less for shipping and incur no additional charges, making them less expensive to you.
