Designing With Standard Sizes

It is helpful to be aware of the standard sizes for the art and framing industry, since mats and boards are often made to standard sizes, glass is often pre-cut to these sizes and many ready-made frames are available in them.

Knowing these sizes will help in choosing the best framing for artwork with regard to availability of framing materials. It is far easier to use a lite (sheet) of precut 16” x 20” glass than to trim the glass to 15” x 19 7/8”.

Here is a list of the standard sizes found in the art, craft and picture framing industry. Many of the sizes are based on photography, fine art, or printing paper sizes.

4” x 5”   11” x 14”   24”x 36”
4” x 6”   12” x 16”   26” x 32”
5” x 7”   14” x 18”   30” x 40”
6” x 8”   16” x 20”   32” x 40”
8” x 10”   18” x 24”   36” x 48”
8” x 12”   20” x 24”   40” x 60”
8 1/2” x 11”   22” x 28”   48” x 60”
9” x 12”   24” x 30”   48” x 96”

*Sizes printed in bold are the most common.

Ready-made frames are generally available in the most popular standard sizes.
