Picture frame sizes

Tags: ,

The picture frames you can buy online or in store come in a variety of standard picture frame sizes. These frames usually include a mount. It is the aperture size of the mount that is cut to fit standard photo sizes.

Standard sizes for A sized frames. A4 is standard writing paper size. Usually certificates are printed to this size so A4 will be suitable for any standard sized A4 frame.

  1. A6 = 148 X 105 MM
  2. A5 = 210 X 148 MM
  3. A4 = 297 X 210 MM
  4. A3 = 420 X 297 MM
  5. A2 = 594 X 420 MM
  6. A1 = 841 X 594 MM
  7. A0 = 1,189 x 841 MM

Frames in the UK are produced in other standardized sizes. The sizes below include a few square shaped frames which are often box frame types.

  1. 24 x 30 cm
  2. 30 x 40 cm
  3. 40 x 50 cm
  4. 50 x 50 cm
  5. 50 x 60 cm
  6. 50 x 70 cm
  7. 60 x 80 cm

The trick to ordering online is measure your picture accurately beforehand. Make sure you are measuring in cm if the frame sizes are listed in cm.

If you are looking for a simple certificate frame I would recommend asking your local picture framer to knock you up a ready frame with an off-cut moulding. That way you get what you want at the price you want.
