Framing Your Prints

The Right Frame Makes Your Print

The Right Frame Makes Your Print

 

Choosing the right frame & mount adds to the appearance of your print.

While you can take your print to a professional framer, you can also get good results doing it your self which can be significantly cheaper.

 

Print Sizes

 

My prints are available in to sizes – 16 x 12 inches (406mm x 305mm), and 20 x 16 inches (508mm x 406mm).

The print sizes quoted refer to the overall paper size, and your print will have a 1cm border all round to allow for easy framing. Note that sizes are approximate.

You will find many stores sell frames designed for these print sizes if you just want a ready made frame. Most will have a mount in the frame which is pre-cut to fit the print size and the mount will also have a border.

Some Suggestions

I have used two very good frame suppliers, one which sells ready made frames with a double mount and one which offers a vast selection of frame styles and mounts so you can design your own frame. Both can be ordered online – check them out below.

 

 

IKEA

IKEA frames are available to fit my prints and are a good value option.

For my prints 20 x 16 inches, choose a frame like RIBBA 70cm x 50cm which comes with a mount fitting a print size of 50cm x 40cm (currently £12)

For my prints 16 x 12 inches, choose a frame like RIBBA 50cm x 40cm which comes with a mount fitting a print size of 40cm x 30cm (currently £7)
