View Full Version : Standard sizes for framing with mats?

07-09-2002, 04:48 PM
In the past I painted in oils so I know all the standard frame sizes, but now that I'm using pastels which need a mat, I have no idea what size to cut my paper. Does anyone know of a list of standard sizes that will fit ready-made mats for easy framing?

No one knows? What I'm wanting is the standard sizes of the inside window of ready to buy mats. I've searche the web but can only find the outside dimensions and not those of the opening.

Here's a link to Dick blicks that gives mat and opening size. :)

Thank you , this is just what I needed! The supply stores I checked only listed outer dimensions which wasn't much help. This will be a big help. Thanks!
