Inexpensive Picture Frame for 12x18 Prints

For many photo labs, 12x18 has become the standard photo print size — even wholesale stores offer 12x18 picture-printing capabilities. Not only can professional photo labs print these sizes, the home photographer can print it as well, usually on 13x19 paper.

The 12x8 print size is the first 3:2 ratio compatible with most SLR cameras to become available since the 4x6. However, photographers have become frustrated at the lack of a standard frame size for 12x18 prints — even though the print size had become so popular. Some were advised to crop their images to better fit standard size frames or get them custom framed in a shop by an expensive professional.

Standard Sizes for 12x18 Photos

Some of our standard sizes for picture frames for these prints are 16x22, 18x24 and 20x26. You can also order a custom picture frame and create a frame of any size that fits a 12x18 print.

We’ve always carried picture frames for 12x18 image sizes, but they were exclusively higher-end frames with mat boards included in the package. We have since added new ready-made metal picture frames in the 12x18 size that matches the 13x19 size. Each frame for 12x18 prints uses high-quality aluminum moulding with glass and foamcore mounting board to create a simple, elegant frame, making it an inexpensive and easy option to display 12x18 images in a picture frame. Each frame includes a hanging kit — all you need to supply is the photo!

Please refer to our instructional video for a guide on how to order your custom picture frame online.

  • I am a teacher and we are trying to re-decorate the front entry hall of our school. I am trying to find inexpensive 12x18 frames and I ran across your site. I was wondering if you still sold them, and if so, how much they cost? [email protected]

  • Yes, we certainly do and we have added a few new sizes in addition to the 12x18 and 13x19. They are on our website here.
