Guide to Picture Frame Sizes

Although most standard picture frame sizes match the most common photo printing sizes, picture frames come in a wide variety of sizes, orientations, and dimension styles to fit any size picture, allow for different styles of picture frame mats and sizes, and help you achieve your ideal framing look.

The most popular size picture frames naturally match the most common photo printing sizes. These standard sizes include 4x6, 5x7 and 8x10:

The most common or popular size of larger picture frames is 24x36. The main reason for this is that most standard movie posters are sold in this size.

Choosing Frame Sizes With Mat Board

If you order a picture frame that is the exact size of your print, there will be no room for a mat and the photo will take up the entire frame space. If you'd like to offset your photo with a mat or several mat layers you'll need to get frame sizes that are larger than your printed photo.

Frame Destination carries several pre-set frame sizes that fit common photo sizes while allowing for a mat board. If your desired size picture frame is not listed below, we make it easy at Frame Destination to get your own frame dimensions and order a custom frame.
