Chart Legend Explanations
Standard A formal, legal, internationally recognized, set of Standards such as the S.I. and I.S.O., or an informal one, such as the American photographic frame sizes, used widely both here in Australia, and the United States.
Name or Size The legal, recognized, generic, or most common name a photo frame, picture frame, or piece or paper, is known as, such as an A4 document picture frame copy paper sheet or an 8"x10" photo frame.
Size in Cms. The size in centimetres a photo frame, picture frame, or paper is measured at. With photo frames and picture frames, sizes are always measured at the back and inside of the frames and never at the front and outside the frames. If unsure, check by measuring a frame's glass size. For measuring practicality the conversion of the measurements are rounded to the nearest 1/8th of an inch rather then the available, but unpractical, 128th of an inch.
Size in Ins. The size in inches a photo frame, picture frame, or paper is measured at. With photo frames and picture frames sizes are always measured at the back and inside of the frames and never at the front and outside the frames. If unsure, check by measuring a frame's glass size.
Area in Cms2 The total surface area a photo frame, picture frame, or piece or paper is measured at. Obtained by multiplying in centimeters heights and widths. Useful to know when comparing the sizes of photo frame or picture frames so as to ascertain which is the smallest, or largest.  
  The data sorting arrows. Click to sort the sizes and data from big to small or vice-versa. Useful when wanting to know which photo or picture frames are smaller or larger than the others. For example, to check if A2 is bigger or smaller than 16" x 24", click any arrow to sort the data numerically and see that A2 is bigger because its area size is larger than that of the 16" x 24".

§ This chart lists all the common, photo frames and picture frames sizes that we stock and sell via our online store. While there may exist other paper, print, art or frame sizes, listing these would be beyond the scope and purpose of this chart since such sizes are either not readily available off-the-shelf, or we do not sell them. That said, almost any photo of picture frames size can be made as a custom-made frame. If you are interested in knowing the cost of a special-size, or custom picture frame, use our Prices Estimator page.
If needing to convert Metric sizes to Imperial ones ( or vice-versa ) you can use the Convert Sizes and Measurements calculator at the left hand side of this page.
