How to Measure

Width x height

 

 

 

 

How to measure for your made to measure picture frame.

  • Always measure photo or art the full width by height.
  • We remove 6mm in size to account for mount and photo overlap.
  • We would prefer measurements in millimetres (mm) but you can use Inch’s and we will convert it.
  • Measurements are Width x Height.
  • Using a metric ruler.
  • Don't have a ruler, here are some printable paper rulers.
The only measurement you need is the full Width x Height of the item to be framed.
 
Looking at the photo place a ruler or tape measure on one edge of the item,
measure from one side to the other side.
 
1st the Width
2nd the Height
 
See two measurement examples below.
