Measuring Your Picture

FramingIf you already have an image or photo at home that you would like to buy a custom made picture or photo frame for please use the 'Frame & Mat only' option. YourFramer will send you a custom made picture frame with a mat ready to put your image into.

You will need to provide us with your measurements. Here's how.

How to measure for different types of pictures

Here is what to look for when measuring your picture.

  • For Photographs it is the measurement from the very edge of the image. Ignore any white surround area on your picture.
  • For Needlework it is the measurement from the most outside row of thread, or the actual size, including any blank area, you would like the window mat to be cut.
  • For 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.
  • For 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.
