Frame Sizes & Measurements
Frame size refers to mat size
Frames come in a variety of sizes. When shopping for a frame always look for a frame that accepts the measurement of your mat (colored cardboard border that separates your picture from the frame).
Our frames are available in black or natural
We typically offer black or natural colored wooden frames in both sizes. Additional colors can be ordered.
Two sizes available
Our standard size frame is approximately 12″ x 15″, which will fit an 11″ x 14″ mat. Our half size frame measures approximately 9″ x 11″, which fits an 8″ x 10″ mat.

Our full size frame comes with a wall hanger. The smaller size comes with an easel back; hanging hardware is available upon request.

Deciding what size frame to purchase
for your print in a mat
When you purchase your printed scene, ready to frame from us it will be one of two sizes.
Our standard/full size print in a mat measures 11″ x 14″ on the outer edge of the mat. This is the size frame you shop for.
Our small size print with a mat measures 8″ x 10″ on the outer edge of the mat. This is the size frame that you shop for.
Frames vary considerably due to their construction and design, for this reason, frames are sold by the size mat it fits. So, anytime you are shopping for a frame you always shop using the outer measurement of the mat.
