Important info, digital photo sizes vary

There are frequently differences between "standard" traditional photo print sizes and digital prints. Besides the different aspect ratio, digital photo print sizes are often a metric approximate size.  For example many 6x4 online prints are less than 6x4 inches, and are actually 150x10cm (150x100 mm).  Likewise a digital "7x5" will often be 120x170cm, again a bit smaller, "8x6" is frequently 20x15cm.  This particularly applies to online processing, and home photo printers.

In addition some prints can have borders (unprinted or black, or other coloured edging) that you will probably want to cover up, and others may actually have an image size exactly as stated, with the paper being larger with a border on it.

It can all be very confusing.  You need a mount window smaller than the paper size, otherwise the photo falls through the hole, and ideally slightly smaller than the printed image to cover any borders you don't want to see.

So our digital photo mounts are offered in these three variations;

  • Exact Image size (eg. a "6x4" digital will usually be 15x10cm which is a little smaller than 6x4 inches)
  • Full Print (Printed to edge) (eg. 15x10cm to overlap the picture slightly = 147 x 97mm window)
  • Bordered Print Size (eg. 15x10cm, with a 5mm border on all sides which you want to cover = 140x90mm window size)

If possible you should measure the actual photos you have. If you have not yet ordered or printed them you should err on the safe side and order one of the other options with slightly smaller windows that cover the edges of the print more.

Only order "Exact" size if you are sure that the paper the image is printed on is slightly larger than the quoted size - and beware that when they say 7x5 or 6x4 it may actually be a smaller metric rounded down size to the paper they actually use.

Well, that was hard work. The easy part is ordering!

Frame sizes are the actual inch sizes, these are standard sizes for photo frames/picture frames you can buy most places.
