Uncut Sheet Frame Size??

Unread postby pstaehlin » Sat Jun 18, 2016 3:10 pm  

Hello everyone,

I recently got a new uncut sheet of playing cards that I'm thinking of framing. Who's done this before? Do you have photos to share?
And what is the frame size to best fit the uncut sheet?

Thanks for your time!
Paul

Hello Paul I think uncut sheets should be somewhere around 22 x 24 inches. This is a uncommon frame size so you're gonna be spending a little more if you wanted a frame fitted to the uncut sheet. This option was too pricey for me because I had so many uncut sheets I wanted framed so I just went to my local Michael's and they were having sales on 22 x 26 inch frames. The 22 x 26 inch left some space but I didn't mind it too much. You can see how much space it left on my instagram @54_cards. However I know some people that have gone all out framing their uncut sheets. They would get a custom border around the uncut sheet around 2 inches and a custom frame.

Thank you guys for the inside about this. Trungbreezy: Checked out your photos on Instagram. Your framed uncut sheet looks great! I think I'll go that route.

Sorry for the cross post and digging up an old thread, but in case this helps somebody else in 6-60 months - I just completed framing most of my uncuts and have tips and sizes here:
