How to add a white border to your print

We trim to the size you select. If you require a border around your image the best solution is to add it when creating your artwork file. However, if you are selecting any of our Wall Art & Photos papers or our Fine Art Giclée papers, we can add the border for you.

A2: includes a 10mm border

A2: 10mm extra border/material

Include a border in your file yourself

By adding a border to your artwork file yourself you have better control over the final size of your print. This is important if you want a standard size print to fit into a pre-made frame. For example, if you are ordering an A2 print for an A2 frame and want a 10mm white border around your image, add a border inside the dimensions of the A2 area. This will mean your image will be smaller than A2. It will be 277mm x 400mm.

We suggest using an editing application such as photoshop to add your border, make the dimensions of your file A2 with a white background and reduce or crop your image to fit to border size you want.

We add a border for you

You may want extra paper around your image to make it easier to handle the print or so you can trim the print yourself. An extra handling area is beneficial when taping to the back of a Passepartout (the framing Matt) and for handling, but also it avoids cutting through ink. You can ask us to add the extra paper for you. Your final print will be the size you order plus the extra paper (or border) you ask us to add.

On the order page of the Wall Art & Photos papers or our Fine Art Giclée papers you will see a button:
