With the above information, we hope you find it a breeze the next time you decide on printing photos. You could always print them in a larger size, and cut them neatly with a pen knife and ruler on a flat and firm surface. Do ensure to ensure a 3 percent recession as a tiny border of the picture may be covered by the frame.

Even with the invention of digital photo frames, the business of conventional and traditional picture frames are still a huge hit. Sometimes, nothing beats having a beautifully printed frame on your wall.
