For many photo labs, 12 x 18 has become the standard photo print size — even wholesale stores offer twelve by eighteen 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 12 x 8 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 12" by 18" 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 12 x 18 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 these print dimensions.
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 size that matches the 13x19 size. Each frame for 12 by 18 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 twelve x eighteen images in a picture frame. Each frame includes a hanging kit — all you need to supply is the photo!
