Frame Guide

How to frame Loose Petals art?

Our paper posters and prints have a small border for matting.

SIZE OF ART (in inches).................SIZE OF PAPER (in inches)
8 x 10...................................................8.5 x 11
11 x 14................................................12.5 x 15.5
16 x 20................................................17 x 21
23.5 x 29.5 (updated 6/23/15)..............24 x 30
35.5 x 44.5 (updated 6/23/15)..............36 x 45

When using a mat you will need to have a frame that is larger than the artwork itself. For example, an 8 x 10” print will need a larger frame the next size up 11 x 14 to fit both the artwork and the mat inside.

Here are some inexpensive shops that sell a wide selection of frames:
- Michael's
- Kohl’s
- Target
- Bed Bath and Beyond
- TJMaxx Homegoods

When framing posters over 16 x 20” you will find a large selection at online frames stores. Arttoframes.com carries up to 36 x 45”. For low cost custom frames we recommend: Wholesaleposterframes.com.

Custom framers, like The Great Frame Up or select Michael's, Blick's stores can handle framing details such as professionally taking large poster out of the tube and recommending frames to compliment your taste.

We do not recommend Ikea frames because the mat board openings are small and tend to cover the art on the 8 x 10 prints.

NOTE: Double check and find out the measurements of the mat and frame openings for accuracy, frames and mat boards are a little different depending on manufacturer. On-line frame vendors offers frame solutions for prints over 16 x 20. Contact stores and also shop on-line to make sure your required dimensions and style of frame are on inventory.

If you would like a ready to hang option, we offer wrapped canvas prints,
