Your frame will be shipped fully assembled unless it is Clearly Stated when you add it to the shopping cart that it isn't. Frames over this size (width + width + length = 144") will be shipped unassembled all other frames are shipped assembled.


    -- Frame Size --

    Frame size, is the size of the recessed opening on the back of the frame. Your frame opening will be Approx. 1/8" larger than ordered size. This is the industry standard, it allows room for your art to fit in the back of the frame.

    Example: If you have an 11" x 14" picture, you will need to order an 11" x 14" frame. It will be made approx. 11 1/8" x 14 1/8"


    -- Figuring the "Outside Size" of Your Frame --

    The "outside size" of your frame will be bigger by approx. (double the molding width less 1/2"). This is the space a frame will take on your wall, it is not the size to order.

    Example #1: If you order an 11 x 14 frame made with 3" wide molding, your frames outside size will be approx. 5 1/2" wider & higher, for an "outside size" of approx. 16 1/2" x 19 1/2"

    Example #2: If you order an 11 x 14 frame made with 1 1/2" wide molding, your frames outside size will be approx. 2 1/2" wider & higher, for an "outside size" of approx. 13 1/2" x 16 1/2"

    -- Custom Cut Matting info Below --


    -- How to Figure Your Matting Size--

    The outside dimensions of your mat board should be the same as the stated frame size.

    Example: If you have an 11" x 14" frame you need an 11" x 14" mat.

    Note: Frames are made approx. 1/8" bigger than "stated size" to automatically allow room for fit-up with print, photo, artwork, matting etc. An 11" x 14" frame will have a recessed opening on the back that will measure approx. 11.12" x 14.12".

    The opening dimensions of your mat board should be about 1/4" smaller than your print, photo or art work so you have room to mount it without the edges showing. You will need to allow more for large pictures.

    Example: An 8" x 10" photo, print, poster etc. would need an opening approx. 7.75" x 9.75".

    -- How to Order Double & Triple Mats --

    When ordering double matting your top mat board should have the same outside dimensions as the bottom mat board and normally have an opening approx. 1/2 to 1 inch larger than the bottom mat board. For triple matting, all three mats should have the same outside dimensions and each opening from bottom to top should have progressively larger openings normally 1/2 to 1 inch per layer.

    Hint: When you assemble your double or triple mats use double sided tape between layers to stop any movement when framing.


    -- How to Order Matting with Multiple Openings --

     If you want to order matting with more than one opening, e-mail us at

     Give us the outside dimensions of the matting and the size and location of the openings. We will then e-mail you a drawing with all dimensions for your approval. If you approve of the drawing you may then order your mat.

    You will need to enter "0" x "0" for (opening sizes) and enter the total number of openings in the box provided. When you click on "calculate" the cost for the mat with extra openings entered in box will be displayed.

    When you check-out make a note in the comments area that you want your matting cut as to your approved drawing.

    -- How to Order Bottom Weighted Matting --

    If you want your mat board opening cut other than in the center. Make a note in the comments area when you check-out how much and in what direction you want the opening to be. 

    Example #1: I want my mat opening 1/2" higher in the portrait or landscape format. This would make a centered mat boarder of 2" (top & bottom) into a bottom weighted boarder of 1.5" top and 2.5" bottom. This makes the bottom 1" wider than the top.

    Example #2: I want my mat opening 1/4" higher in the portrait or landscape format. This would make a centered mat boarder of 2" (top & bottom) into a bottom weighted boarder of 1.75" top and 2.25" bottom. This makes the bottom 1/2" wider than the top.
