Re: mat it to a standard picture frame size

12x18 and 13x19 are not standard picture frame sizes. However, if you get a mat that takes them to an 18x24 frame size then you have a large choice of inexpensive off-the-shelf picture frames. Such mats are standard at my company, but you can get them custom from just about any online DIY framing supplier. You can also get the entire frame package from an online DIY supplier although the cost may be a little higher than the Chinese imports since they will most likely be American made. If you are concerned about conservation you may be better off going with DIY supplier since most of the imports are seldom made using archival components.

If you leave the mat off and go with a DIY supplier you can save some money since not only do you eliminate the mat board cost but all of the remaining components (moulding, glass, acrylic or mounting board) are now smaller.

Cheers,
Mark
