Measuring for a frame
If you have a 12"x18" print w/ a 1/4" white border around the artwork, you will want to order a 12"x18" frame.
When looking at a frame in profile, you’ll see there’s the width and outer height of the moulding but there’s also inner depth, known as the rabbet. This area is where your picture or print sits when it’s mounted in the picture frame.
Non-Glare Acrylic or Glazing
frame-grade acrylic is used instead of standard glass for several reasons. Acrylic is twenty times more shatter proof than glass – making it a safer choice. Acrylic weighs less than glass. Acrylic is less expensive than glass. And, most importantly, our acrylic provides a greater level of protection for your artwork over standard glass.
Mat or Matting
A mat is a piece of cotton paper, usually 4-ply in thickness, that goes inside the picture frame with your image. Incorporating a mat into your framing has many functions. For one, it adds additional decoration to the overall finish of your display. They also serve as a way to separate your art from the acrylic to protect from things like water damage, mold and mildew.
