Measuring Your Picture

Have a picture already you'd like to get a frame for? Here's how to measure for different types of pictures

Here is what to look for when measuring your picture.

  • Photographs - it is the measurement from the very edge of the image. Ignore any white surround area on your picture.
  • Watercolours -  it is the measurement from the outer most painted area, or the actual size, including any blank area, you would like the window mat to be cut.
  • Canvas - pictures on stretcher frames it is the measurement to the outer edges of the stretcher frame.

When cutting your mats or making your frame, the YourFramer framing team will adjust the size of the mat opening and will add a clearance to the size of the frame.
