How To Measure Your Art
Looking to frame your favorite prints, photographs, or artwork, but don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered with our easy how-to guide to get you on your way to getting the perfect frame for your home.
What truly allows ArtToFrames to stand out among other framing companies is our ability to create custom products of any size to match your vision.
To begin the process of ordering the correct size frame, you will need a measuring tape or ruler to measure the size of your image.
After taking down your measurements, you’ll head to your desktop computer or mobile device and select any frame of your choice on the frame search page here.
Once on the product page for your frame, all you need to do is enter the size you measured previously and click ok. Then select your mat color (optional), glass type, and hardware and we take care of the rest. You don’t need to do any math to figure out the frame and mat sizing as our website will do all the work for you based on the image size you enter. How cool is that?!
When you receive your frame you will bend back all of the black flexi tabs to remove the backing and mat, if you ordered with a mat. Below we will demonstrate how to place your image inside the mat. For frames without a mat, you can skip this step.
Getting your artwork and mat into your frame will be a piece of cake… or cookie in this case : )
Use clear tape or masking tape on the back side edges of your print and place centered on the back of your mat to hold it onto the mat. Our website and system automatically cuts the mat or frame an ⅛” less than the size of your image on each side to make sure your image fits securely without falling through the opening of the mat/frame.
You are now ready to place your matted image into your frame.
After placing your mat and image inside the frame, place the backing on top of it and press the black flexi tabs down to secure your frame backing in place.
Install your frame’s respective mounting hardware, use a level to make sure your frame is properly balanced, and hang up your new frame to provide your home with beautifully framed artwork.
