Ordering Frames for Small Images

Do you have a miniature image to frame? Maybe even a postage stamp? Using a mat and one of our custom-cut frames, miniatures can be beautifully displayed.

American Frame can provide mouldings as small as 5”x5”. (Due to safety considerations, our craftsman can’t cut anything smaller than that.) If you have an item smaller than 5”x5” a 
custom cut mat board will bridge the difference and provide a dramatic backdrop for your image.

Here’s how to go about designing a miniature treatment.

Choose your frame, which starts the framing engine.

Enter your art size. In our example it’s 1” x 1”.

Now enter mat border measurements. As you do, pay attention to the INSIDE frame dimensions (found under the image of the treatment). Keep increasing your border measurements until your INSIDE frame dimensions are at least 5” x 5”.

Holly, it's pretty easy once you decide what you want to frame. Small pieces can have a huge impact once framed!

I do have a few items that are small, I never thought of framing them.
