It would be great if every school photography company used the same size photos in their photo packs - unfortunately they don't!  When we started designing our School Years Photo Frames, we discovered that although there were certainly some variations in photo sizes, the following tend to be the most common size.

  • Small 3.5 x 5 cm
  • Medium 6.5 x 8.5 - 9 cm
  • Large 13 x 18 cm 

These 3 sizes worked really well together, allowing us to design our frames in layouts that look well organised and stylish.

Some photo companies provide an even smaller size photo in their packs measuring  3 x 4.5 cm (MSP is the main company that uses this size).

You can use these very small photos in our "Signature Small" range of frames, just request this matting option in the comments section when ordering and we will supply you with the matting for these smaller photos.   This information is noted on the Signature Small product information on our website.

The Large, Double, Triple & Quad frames have 12 small spaces for 6 x 8.5-9 cm photos.  If your photos are slightly SMALLER than this size (for example 5 x 7.5) We can arrange for the photo spaces to be cut slightly smaller in the matting of your frame. If the adjusted matting still fits into our standard range of frames there is no extra charge - just contact us to arrange this.

If your photos are significantly different in size - don't panic! Please email us with the size and number of photo spaces you want, and we can design and quote a custom frame layout for you. 

If your school suddenly changes school photography companies, or your child changes schools, then re-sizing your photos is the way to go.  Companies like Officeworks can help with this, or you can DIY!  Click here for our article detailing an easy way to re-size your photos at home.

Finally, if you have the option to order a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD of your child's school portrait - do it!  Once you have this photo saved, you can have it printed in any size you like.

We have very specific information about photo sizing detailed with every frame on our website. Please take the time to read this information and most importantly measure your photos to see if they will fit.
