How do I calculate the price of a frame?

  • length + length + width + width + (width of moulding x 8) = total inches
  • Divide total inches by 12 to get the number of feet
  • Round up to the nearest half foot and multiply by the price per foot
    **min 4' per chop frame
    Example: 16x20 of 1" moulding
    16"+16"+20"+20"+8" = 80"
    80"/12 = 6.7' (which rounds up to 7')

How many feet do I need for my job?

What are thumbnails or wedges?

  • A "thumbnail" or "wedge" is a frame joining insert that will allow you to join a frame without an underpinner
  • Omega will route one, two or three wedges out of the corner of your chop frame depending on the width of the moulding. We will provide thumbnail inserts so all you have to do is apply glue to the mitre and insert the thumbnail to secure the corner

What are inside vs outside dimensions?

  • The inside dimension is the art or mat measurement
  • The outside dimension is the size of the frame from the outermost edges of both the width and height of the piece. Think of it as the amount of wall the finished piece will cover

What is the standard allowance?

  • Standard allowance is 1/8" which means that we will add 1/8" when cutting your frame unless you specify a different allowance or "exact" size
  • If you specify "sight size" we will cut exact
  • If you specify "outside dimensions" we will cut exact
  • Floater frames are cut to exact size ordered
  • Fillets are cut to exact size ordered
  • Canvas allowance is 3/16"

  • Yes! Just call the office and we will be happy to assist you 1-800-289-6634

Clogged Nozzles

  • Regarding clogged nozzles on spray adhesive cans such as
  • 3M Super 77: We occasionally get calls from customers that their cans of spray adhesive worked only for a short time; there is adhesive left in the can but does not come out when the nozzle is depressed. This is a common issue caused by not cleaning the nozzle after each use
  • 3M directions: After each use, invert the can and depress the nozzle until no adhesive comes out. This will clear the nozzle of the adhesive that will cause any clogging. 3M also recommends removing then cleaning the clogged nozzle with adhesive remover or acetone, or take a nozzle from another can to try on the clogged can
