****** We are now closed for Pre-Christmas Orders. New orders will be dispatched in the New Year *****
We have been selling Instagram frames since 2012. We produce a comprehensive range, which are available for 4 x 4, 5 x 5, 6 x 6 and 8 x 8 prints. The larger the number of apertures in the frames, the smaller the print size available eg. 30 aperture is only for 4 x 4 prints.
The images show the different layouts we offer. There is colour coding to show the sizes available for each layout.
I use ArtBak Conservation backing board in the frames.
Art-Bak fluted backing boards have a slight bow for flatter artwork and to help hold your prints against the mount.
White lignin-free conservation quality facing paper. and a water resistant coating on buffered twin-wall brown core. Water resistant coating works with most gummed and self-adhesive tapes should you wish to seal the back of your frame to protect against dust and insects.
The aperture size is the opening width & height. The apertures in the Instagram frames are smaller by 5mm all round to allow the mount to hold the prints in place.
4 x 4 print size – 92mm
5 x 5 print size – 117mm
6 x 6 print size – 142mm
8 x 8 print size – 192mm
The border width – which is the ‘visible’ mountboard surrounding the apertures, is approx.40mm.
The space between the apertures is approx. 23mm – 28mm depending on the print size.
The frame or moulding width is the distance in mm’s from the outside of the frame to the inner edge or glass. Most of the frames I use are approx. 28mm wide x 20mm deep, but this can vary slightly.
The frames are pre-drilled for the hanger screws.
