A guide to Frames

A GUIDE TO FRAME SIZES

Purchasing a frame without a mat(the border separating the picture from the glass) is pretty straightforward. But, adding a mat to your print changes the image ratios just a bit so you cannot purchase an 8"x10" matted frame for an 8"x10" print. So, I've put together a few of my recommendations for matted frame sizes and places to purchase them.
