   wholesale  picture frames, mat cutting and assembly  






How are frames measured?

Frames are always measured  from the inside (rabbet) of the frame. That is the size of a piece of glass that will fit in the frame. The actual size of  the frame  is 1/8" larger than indicated to allow room around the glass, mats, image etc. The actual rabbet size of an 8" x 10 " frame is 8 1/8" x 10 1/8".

How are mats measured?       


Mats are measured at the outside. They are not measured by the size of the cutout (hole). When determining what size mat you need remember that the mat must cover the artwork or photograph. If your artwork is 8 x 10 you need a mat with an opening of at least 1/8" smaller. 

Are your mats acid free?

All of the mats that we sell are buffered to make them 100% acid neutral.  Our regular matboard, available in standard colors, offers consistent color for basic framing and presentation needs. We also offer the complete Crescent and Bainbridge lines of matboard in our volume framing section.

If  you wish to return an order or part of an order please contact us within 30 days of receipt of the order.

If we have not made an error, there is a 15% restocking charge for standard products. We are not able to allow returns of custom made products where we have not made an error, since they would not be able to be reused.
