I always send commissioned paintings with an iced white mount. These are available in three difference sizes, depending on the paper size.
For an A4 painting, I am able to provide either an A4 mount or a larger mount measuring 16″ x 12″.
A3 paintings are accompanied with a mount measuring 20″ x 16″.
The diagram below demonstrates the difference in visible painting area for each mount to help you decide which size to order.
A4 Standard Mount
Unless otherwise specified, the prints and originals in my shop are A4 in size and are provided in an A4 mount. These are perfect for framing in an A4 sized frame – also known in the UK as a Certificate Frame.
As shown, the outside measurement of the mount is A4. This means that the visible image area is slightly smaller than A4 and measures approximately 23cm x 15 cm.
A4 Painting with 16″ x 12″ Mount
To give you a little more painting for your enjoyment, I am pleased to now be able to provide a larger mount for the A4 paintings.
This mount measures 16″ x 12″ (approx. 41cm x 30cm). Many frames are available to buy online or on the high street in this size.
A3 Painting with 20″ x 16″ Mount
If you have a larger wall space to decorate, the A3 painting will be perfect for your home.
The outside edge of the mount measures 20″ x 16″ (approx. 51cm x 41cm) and leaves almost the entire A3 space for your image.
