Here is a glossary and explanation of the key terms we use to describe the sizing of our picture frames.
Image Size: This refers to the size that you enter, we always recommend entering the full size of your prints, artworks, puzzles and so on. We build our frames around this image size so no matter what options you add to your frame, it will be designed to fit the image size you enter.
If you choose to upload & print your images, we lock the Image Size to the ratio of your image, this way it will never stretch or be warped. You'll notice that with your image uploaded for printing, if you enter in a width the height will automatically calculate, and vice versa.
Visible Size: This is an approximation of what you will visually see after your image has been placed in the frame. Whether you order a frame with or without a matboard, your image has to be overlapped by a small amount in order to fit correctly.
Glass Size: This refers to the glass and backing size that fits within the frame.
Outer Size: This is an approximation of the full width and height of the entire finished picture frame, edge to edge. Please note it is only an approximation and if you need an accurate outer dimension, let us know in the order comments.
