Mount Aperture Instructions

Need help in choosing the correct mount size?

1. A 200mm x 300mm certificate will fall through an aperture 200mm x 300mm.
2. Mounts are measured width x height, so a 200mm x 300mm aperture is 200mm wide x 300mm high.
3. Mounts are cut by hand, and so a tolerance is required of +/- 2mm.

What size aperture do I enter for my 200mm x 300mm portrait (upright) certificate?
Answer : 195mm x 295mm
This is called the' visible area', 'aperture,' or 'cut out.' It may arrive from 197 mm x 297mm to 193mm x 293mm, but either way, your certificate will not fall through.

When will my order arrive?
Mounts may take an additional seven days to be manufactured depending on our staff workload.

How do I attach my certificate or picture to the mount ??
Usually, customers use a small piece of masking tape to attach the certificate or picture to the back of the mount board.

What is the 'size' of a frame?
Wherever you buy a frame in the world, the 'size' is the size of the piece of glass which fits in it. So - if you can fit a piece of glass 70 x 100cm into a frame you can also fit a poster 70 x 100cm.
