My copy has just been framed (the quality of the print is outstanding) and it will be going on the shed walls this week.
(Can't figure out how to get a picture in)

Al, as the proud (and very happy) owner of a set of drawings I need to utter just one word of caution.
I do not think they are A0.I bought A0 picture frames and found that what I had didn't fit. Can I suggest you check measurements and advise exactly what they are?

Hi Richard,

Which drawing(s) of yours are you referring to? Do it/they have a faint line around the edge of the picture?

My print measures 1170 by 830 mm inside the frame so it's slightly larger than that.

Thanks for your reply.

A0 size is 1189mm x 841mm - all of our drawings are either cut exactly to this size (very very few are done this way, it is just for packaging purposes where some couriers require the package to fit within tight size parameters / restraints which means they have to be trimmed a small amount prior to packaging), or have a border line marking out that size for the end user to use with an A0 frame with an outside "no mans land" margin to be cut to size.
The 4 we have hung in our households all measure 1189mm x 841mm on the border line and all fit within an A0 frame at that size without issue.

Your pictures will have been slightly larger than A0 size overall (as are 99% of the drawings) but with the border on there at exactly A0 size to allow room for trimming to personal requirements. They also don't come cut to the border size (unless for packaging for certain couriers) so that there is slight space in case there is damage to the edge of the paper either in transit when getting bumped about, or when getting the rolled-up drawing out of the protective tube. Any "fringing" or damage will likely be outside of the border which can then be trimmed without going inside the A0 size.
It's a buffer if you will.

I'm sure my Dad's comprehensive handling / unpackaging notes that he gave to you with the drawings covered this aspect.

Cheers.
Al / Ron

Al,
I wish to make it clear I am an absolutely delighted customer.
My issue on the A0 size would appear to be my picture framer who may have "snowed" me!
My fault!

Glad to hear that you're happy with the drawings (we knew you were when you saw them so that wasn't in doubt!)

Thanks for holding your hands up regarding the size.

I take it they're all up on the wall then?!

Cheers.
