8×10 photographs (20×25 cm) can be framed quickly, easily, and inexpensively using readily available off the shelf frames and mats. We typically recommend an 11×14 frame for your 8×10 prints, they’re easy to find and typically come with a pre-cut mat. A 16×20 frame can be quite eye-catching with a nice wide mat, plus it’s an inexpensive alternative to larger artwork. Lately I’ve been hanging our 8x10s in a 12×16 frame, they aren’t as common as some of the other sizes and they require a custom mat to be cut, but I like the extra inch or two of mat that it leaves around my image.

Here are some of our favourite frames for 8×10 photographs from Black’s, Michaels, Ikea, Pottery Barn, Umbra, West Elm, Crate & Barrel, and CB2.

Some companies label their frames with the image size they hold (the size of the window opening) while others mark theirs with the actual size of the glass or even the exterior dimensions of the frame, so always double check that you’re purchasing the right size frame for your print.

For standard size frames that require matting, Michaels offers pre-cut window mats.

Where to Hang an 8×10 Photograph

8×10 photographs typically look best in smaller spaces such as powder rooms, narrow hallways, nooks, or as part of a larger grouping.
