I printed some 8.5x11 photos the other day and am having a rough time finding frames for these. What size frames should I look for? I am looking for something that is black, simple, and relatively inexpensive. Thanks.

I would look for 10x13 or 11x14.

Buy a larger size and get a custom cut matt.

Or reprint at 8x10 - those frames are pretty easy to find, I think.

For 8.5x11, look for "Document Frames."

They're meant for framing certificates and such that have been printed on standard, plain printer paper.

BTW, 8.5x11 is not a "standard" photo aspect ratio (but I gather, since you've had issues finding frames, you probably had that nailed...)

Good Luck... :)

I have been buying Diploma frames at Hobby Lobby that work very well. Pretty basic with a 2" mat. If you have a Hobby Lobby, you can catch them half off a lot of times also.


Canon 6D gripped, Canon 50D gripped, Canon 24-70 F/2.8 L, Canon 50 F1.4, Canon 70-200 F/4 L IS, and the list goes on!

I've used these for cheap, easy display frames.

I use them unmatted, with the print against the glass, so I don't expect long term, archival display, but I've had some prints up for several months and they still look as good as when I hung them.
