Frame Talk: What Does “Overall Size” Mean?

Frame Talk: What Does "Overall Size" Mean? | Delta Girl Frames

You love our frames? Check.

You know just the spot (or a billion spots) for our pieces? Check.

And you’ve got something cute to put into the frames? Check.

But now you’re trying to figure out what the HECK are we talking about when we list the size and ‘overall size’ of our frames.

Oh friends, let me help break it down one glorious nerdy detail at a time.

Delta Girl Frames are made of either 4″ or 6″ solid high quality pine. Our beautiful wood we have milled just for us – no Home Depot trips here – just smooth, perfect(ish), quality grade Pine.

Our frames are made from two different widths of wood. This means that while we make a frame based on the inner dimensions (translation: I want a 5×7 frame), the OVERALL size of the frame itself will be 12×14″ for a 4″ frame, or 16×18″ for our wider 6″ frames.

Same framable inner size (5×7), but two different overall options based on the width of frame you select – either our 4″ or our 6.”

So naturally, the next question then is, “how do I decide?”

Easy. Just answer two quick questions:

1. What does your space allow for?

Can you go bigger, or are you trying to fit a narrower space?

2. What pattern or overall look are you in love with?

Love a big bold pattern or that chunky big frame with a big pop of color? Then you’ll want the larger 6″ frame. Easiest way to understand it is to remember the the smaller the width of frame (4″), the less of the overall pattern/color you’ll see.

Granted a 4″ frame looks great in most of our patterns – but there are a few (Sevilla, honeycomb, wide stripes, henna, and mod floral just to name a few), that look best in our larger 6″ width.

Either way? We’re here to help! You can always send us a question via email at: info@deltagirlframes.com. Or DM us over on Instagram: @deltagirlframes.
