Find picture frame sizes and formats

The new picture is there, but the matching picture frame is missing to put the piece of jewelry in the limelight. Simply choosing a frame between the standard sizes on suspicion is not always recommended. Because there is a great risk that a picture will literally fall out of the frame or, conversely, that the picture will disappear in the frame.

The right size for the frame and passe-partout can be found out with a few simple tricks. In our shop for picture frames in many different sizes and formats, you will find the right frame for your picture object.


Below you will find an overview of our frame sizes and formats. If we do not offer the right standard size, you can order almost all of our picture frames made to measure. To do this, use the customization configurator in our shop or simply order by phone. We are happy to help you personally with your framing.

Determine the frame size of the new picture frame

A picture can only develop its effect if it is framed in the right frame size. The picture size 20 x 30 cm fits into a picture frame with the same frame size. All dimensions of our picture frames refer to the picture size. It should be noted that the visible image size is slightly smaller (usually 1.2-1.5cm). The actually visible image is also referred to as the light measure. The format or the picture frame size is determined by the size of the picture. On request, we can also manufacture your picture frame to a different size.


We have explained the different dimensions for the picture frames here: rebate dimensions, clear dimensions and so on, the right dimension is what counts.

A large selection of formats

The frame size for picture frames is always based on the size of the picture. For smaller formats, such as photos, the standard formats are 9 x 13 cm, 10 x 15 cm, 13 x 18 cm and 20 x 30 cm. The standard formats also cover poster-sized images. There are also formats that are based on DIN sizes from DIN A6 to DIN A0. There are also standard formats for square formats. They start at 9 x 9 cm and go up to sizes of 80 x 80 cm. Incidentally, within the standard formats, the size 30 x 40 cm is the front runner among the picture frames. This is because this size is very flexible for the individual formats. Pictures in DIN A4 format can be staged in this frame just as well as smaller photos. Popular materials for standard formats are wood, metal and plastic. Depending on the furnishing style and personal preferences, subtle accents that match the picture can be set here. If none of the standard formats fit, the picture frames can be made individually in all sizes according to the formats.

Passe-partouts increase the effect of a picture

Passepartouts can complement a picture in a harmonious, yet unobtrusive way. But here too, the sizes have to be right so that there are no surprises. The formats of the passe-partouts depend on the sizes of the picture frames. In this case, the frame size corresponds to the external dimensions of the passe-partout. The back of the picture is attached to the mat and is then positioned between the glass and the back wall of the picture frame. A passe-partout should always cover a picture by at least half a centimeter so that the picture does not fall through the cutout. With small pictures, passe-partouts look very special in wide formats. Posters and large pictures look better with narrow formats in subtle colors. Passepartouts matching the frame size of the standard formats are available from specialist retailers.

American picture frame formats - no problem!

Sometimes it can happen that formats for photo prints, posters or other framing objects are specified in "inches". This inch (abbreviated "in") is the American unit for inches, where 1 inch is exactly 2.54 cm. This information can be confusing when framing your property. That is why we translate our picture frame sizes into American inches for you. You are guaranteed to find the right picture frame format for your framing.
