Multi Aperture Mount Designer
Using our multi aperture picture frame and mount designer you can design mounts with varying apertures for different picture sizes. Photos mounts with multiple opening can be used to display a selection of individual images within the same frame. You can design a multi opening mount with upto 16 apertures. Each aperture can be in either landscape or portrait orientation and with either an oval or rectangle opening.
- Select the number of apertures across and down by clicking "Select Layout/Apertures".
- Using the radio selection button select the layout that suits your requirements and click the Apply button.
There are two options for entering the aperture sizes.
- Option 1 - If all the aperture sizes are the same you can enter the sizes in the first two width/height control boxes and click the Update All button.
- Option 2 - If the apertures need to be different sizes you can enter each aperture size in the corresponding width/height control box and click the Apply Changes button.
- The shape of each aperture, Oval or Rectangle, can also be altered for each aperture.
- Now the layout has been completed you can proceed to the mount options by clicking the Mounts tab or the Next button.
- You can select a different mount colour by clicking the different colours in the colour chart.
- The outer width of the top mount can be adjusted by clicking the arrows just above the top mount colour chart.
- The gap between the apertures is automatically calculated at 75% of the outer mount width to keep everything in proportion.
- The bottom mount is optional and selected/adjusted in the same was the top mount is selected.
- Once the mount colours and widths have been decided you can proceed to Frames Tab.
- Frames are split into different categories and can be sorted using the Sort Options(Price or Width)
- Frames can be selected by clicking on the moulding image.
- The final decision is whether to select a different glazing from the default option of Crystal Clear Acrylic and any additional accessories from the Option tab.
Please follow the simple guidelines and tips below when measuring your artwork.
Always use a proper tape measure, avoid using a fabric tape measure or a ruler.
Measure each dimension twice to double check for errors.
Have a pen and paper handy to note down each measurement.
If you order a frame from us, the frame size will always relate to the internal size of the frame from the back.
It NEVER relates to the visible area from the front of the frame and it NEVER relates to the external size of the frame.
The lip/rebate of the frame will always overlap the glazing and artwork by a few millimetres all round to ensure it doesn't fall out.
I am buying a Picture Frame only....
Measure the physical size of your artwork from outer edge to outer edge, including any white border or existing mount you want to see, for both the width and the height. You would enter those measurements into our custom picture framer application.
We would manufacture your frame so your artwork(including any mount/white border you have included in the measurements) will fit into the opening at the back of the frame.
So if your artwork measures 320 X 470mm, you would enter 320 X 470mm as your frame size - Easy!
I am buying a Picture Frame & Mount...
Measure the exact image size of your artwork from outer edge to outer edge. If your artwork has an existing border that you want to see you would include these in your measurements. If your artwork includes a border that you do not want to see you would not include these in your measurements. The size that your enter will relate to the actual opening size in the middle of the mount.
We will make a small 2mm adjustment to each mount width to ensure the artwork doesn't fall through the middle of the mount aperture.
So if you artwork measures 250 X 190mm, you would enter 250 X 190mm in the size fields. We would manufacture the mount so the actual aperture would be 246 X 186.
The frame size will be calculated by our software and depends on how wide you set the mount widths to be.
Picture Mount Only
If you are purchasing a mount to fit an frame brought elsewhere you need to know the internal frame size(the opening at the back of the frame) as well as the size of your artwork.
Simply enter the exact sizes of your artwork into the size fields on our website. You then have the option to enter the width for each side of the mount, top, bottom, left and right. You will need to calculate manually how wide the mounts need to be to fit your frame opening size.
Please ensure the "External Mount Size" measurements on your order review match the actual opening size of your own frame from the back.
Replacing an old frame
We strongly recommend you remove the artwork from the existing frame before attempting to measure the item. However if this is not possible please remember to measure the opening of the current frame from the back. Do not measure the visible area from the front or the external size of the frame as any replacement frame would not fit.
You should measure the exact external size of the existing backing board or glazing and enter those sizes into our website.
Important Tips & Information
The lip/rebate of the frame will overlap your artwork by a few millimetres all round. This means that the actual visible area from the front of the frame will be smaller than the opening of the frame at the back. The amount of overlap varies from moulding to moulding.
We will manufacture your picture frame to be between 1-2mm larger than the sizes quoted on your order confirmation. This allowance ensures the backing and glazing can be removed when fitting your artwork.
We recommend that the back of the frame is taped up to add a professional finish and additional security.
