How to measure your artwork
Lay your artwork out fully on a flat surface. Measure in mm from edge to edge, for both the width (left to right) and the height (top to bottom).
The minimum picture size we frame is 100 mm x 100 mm.
The maximum picture size we frame is 1500 cm x 1500 cm.
Measuring in mm
As an example, the width of a R100 note is measured to to be 146 mm (which measured in cm is 14.6 cm) - remember to always measure your picture exactly in mm.

All of our frames are hand-made in South Africa to the highest standards using materials that are assured to present and preserve your artwork or photograph to highest visual and archival standards.
Each frame is handcrafted and made to order by our experienced framing team at our workshop in Boksburg, East of Johannesburg.
All of our frame moulds are profiled in house, and sourced from locally grown clear pine.
Pine is a sturdy yet lightweight timber, which has low impact on the environment since it is grown sustainably right here in South Africa and is therefore the perfect material to construct beautiful, environmentally friendly picture frames!
The addition of a matboard or mounting board to a picture frame can give it the distinct finishing touches it needs to accentuate the art piece or photograph.
Here at Frames Online we use only Peterboro mat boards, a producer of acid free papers known for their exemplary performance and archival abilities. Peterboro boards are constructed to the strictest standards as set out by the Fine Art Trade Guild.
For the glaze, depending on the size of frame, either glass or a synthtetic glass acrylic* is used, both have excellent visual properties, with acrylic having excellent UV preservation performance.
*For larger frames that require shipping beyond Gauteng, acrylic is used to prevent breakages.
