Framing Photography – 24×30 Prints

Dick Blick frames for 24x30 photographs

I really recommend having 24×30 inch photographs professionally framed, in fact any image over 11×14 inches should be handled by someone trained to do specifically that. But, if you dare do it yourself, the standard size frame that you’ll find to work the best is 30×40 inches. There isn’t a huge selection of frames of this size out there but we’ll cover the basics here.

All frames here, except the Dick Blick 5″ Simplon Frame, will require additional matting. The Dick Blick frames will need mats for 30×40 frames with a 24×30 window which may be available pre-cut if you hunt around, while the Ikea frames will require custom mats be cut.

These frames use acrylic/plexiglass/polystyrene instead of glass because it is lighter and more durable for shipping, be sure to inspect the glazing to be certain it is going to work for you.

Where to Hang a 24×30 Photograph

24×30 photographs are a nice size for a large space such as above a couch, sideboard, or fireplace, or alone on an otherwise empty wall.

      Thanks for leaving us information for another framing resource. I haven’t purchased from Blue Dot Picture Framing so I can’t attest to their products.
