Standard Frame Sizes For Mounting Your New Artwork
It is exciting to purchase new artwork and often times, many people are not sure about what size mat and frame to use with their new artwork. In this article, I share the most common mat and frame sizes for your artwork.
If you want your artwork to fit in a standard frame with a pre-cut mat, the following is a list of frame sizes and mat openings that you can find at most arts and craft stores.
For example, if your artwork is 5" x 7", then you will be able to find a wide variety of pre-cut mats and frames to mount and display your new artwork. The most frequent presentation size for a 5" x 7" piece of artwork is 8" x 10". You get a nice border around your artwork and 8" x 10" is the most common size.
Refer to the table below as a guideline to help you determine the most common mat and frame options for your artwork.
