When you have more photos than your current frame collection can handle, there are two options. Invest in more frames or combine what you have into one unique display to house a collection of photos together. Nearly all multi photo frames are designed with pre-cut layouts to fit the majority of standard photo sizes of 6” x 4”, 7” x 5”, 10” x 8”, 12” x 8” and A4 prints.
In many cases, the prints you favour will be enlarged, and the ones you are keen to frame with it will be smaller standard sizes. Fitting different sizes into the one multi photo frame can be a difficult task as you would have to order the picture mounts, and then cut the apertures (the windows to sit the photos behind). Cutting picture mounts is not as simple as it sounds as the best cuts are precise and bevelled, and done with a mount cutting device, not a Stanley blade or a pair of scissors.
When you have multiple photos you want to frame, space can be limited, and that is another advantage of using the one frame. In a collection of single frames, you would usually be looking at leaving 2-inches of white space between the frames to separate them. This gives a gallery display on a wall a cohesive look where all your photos look like they are supposed to belong together.
Multi Photo Frames are Designed for the Photos that Definitely Belong Together!
When you are framing multiple photos there is no doubt that the best collections will be themed. Examples of themes can be many things from relationship photo boards used to showcase multiple couple photos at an engagement party right through to a wedding photo album of sorts showcasing the best of the wedding photos within the one frame.
For the best results with a multi aperture photo frame, planning is paramount. Take your time deciding on the photos you want to frame, and then consider the sizes you want them to be.
You can order prints online or use kiosks that are in quite a few stores on the high street. Most print kiosks and UK-based online printing services will offer all the standard print sizes that are straightforward to find a frame to fit your prints.
The vast majority of multi photo frames that come complete with the mount boards have pre-cut apertures of the same size. A simple trick to find a frame to fit different sized prints is to search for an odd number of apertures, such as a 7-aperture photo frame. The reason for using the odd number is because then it is near impossible to have all the apertures the same size. They can be if they only use one row, but you can find some with a large aperture in the centre of the frame surrounded by a half dozen or more smaller apertures to fit complimentary photos around your centrepiece.
Different sizes of apertures in a frame can make a staggering difference to your display as it’s able to put the main piece front and centre with surrounding photos complimenting the theme of the display, turning it into a professional, and artistic storyboard.
