I purchased some frames recently that came out of some old buildings but they're odd print sizes. The frames house a 10.5x10.5, a 32x47, a 38x53 and a 16.5x23.5. All the print shops I use and looked at run the normal sizes like 10x10, 32x48 and 16x24. Any easy solution without needing to cut off the edges of the photo?

Maybe reprint it with a border like a matt? (external link)

I was thinking that also. The original photos in the frames were on matts but they're in to rough of shape to reuse.

well I would always use a mat with a photo framed under glass, the direct contact between frame and glass is generally not good even for relatively short term use. If you are going to have to get custom mats cut then you could just go with taking them to standard print sizes. If you want to match a print size to the frame then Whitewall (external link) will do prints at any size you want. They generally print up to 72" wide and about 110" long IIRC, although it does of course vary with each different paper type. It seems that there is no generally standardised paper roll widths for photo printing papers. The only possible drawback with Whitewall is that they are not at the budget end of the market, quite the opposite actually, still the quality of their work is second to none in my experience.

Get yourself an inexpensive Mat Cutter (external link) and cut your mats to make up for the odd sizes.

Right on.

When one is trying to use non-standard frames, the way things are normally done is to have mattes custom cut.

Options that are both cheap and easy often don't work very well, and it is usually worth it to invest a little more money, time, and effort so that something can be done properly.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I have one of these exact Mat Cutters, it's easy to cut your own mats and they work very well. You can always pay someone to do just about anything you want, it's only money...
