match these standard sizes are often readily available high street outlets,
photographic dealers, Ikea, and some big-box DIY warehouses. The
big outlets may keep only the metric sizes, or a mix of both. The
UK frame market has fairly well accepted 40x30cm and 50x40cm as a
replacement/alternative to the traditional 16x12 and 20x16 inch
sizes. The two sizes are fairly close - so measure carefully before

Dont mix up
imperial and metric frames! example: the most
common misunderstanding is the 20x16 imperial size and 50x40cm
metric frame. Some commercial frame manufacturers make a frame
that falls between the two sizes, and large stores sell the same
item as both "approx" 20x16 or "approx" 50x40. Don't take the
marked sizes on any frame or mount as gospel!
So if ordering a
mount to fit a frame, measure it first - let us know the
measurements, and we will generally make the mount about 2mm smaller to
allow easy fit and 1mm clearance all round (fine art trade guild spec)
or just tell us it is "to fit".
likewise all our
mounts are cut "to fit" the picture or photo unless you ask otherwise,
this gives you 1/4" or approx 5mm overlap so the picture sits behind the
mount. Otherwise it'd fall through the hole! So specify "aperture
required" if you need an exact aperture (mount window) size.
