When having a photo printed for framing…..

I thought I would give you guys my view on the best things to do when having a photo / image printed for framing.

Firstly, all picture frames have a rebate which is at the back of the frame, where the glass, image and backing board sits in. It's about 1cm deep which means, it covers approx 1cm of each side of the picture from it's edge.

It's good to keep this in mind if you are only printing a portion of a photo. Make sure you have left enough room for the frame coverage and don't worry about leaving too much room, we can always trim the photo down from the edge.

It's also a good idea to ask if you can have the picture printed with a 5cm white border. This will save you having to spend money of getting a matt board (which are super expensive!) cut.


A wide border creates some nice depth to the overall picture.
