DOCUMENTATION

How to use this application.


  • Introduction:This application should be used in conjunction with a Logan® 450-1 Artist Elite Mat Cutter. The calculator streamlines the mathematics by calculating precisely where to place the parallel mat guide for cutting the mat's border widths and heights to the appropriate size. I Was Framed Picture Framing and Matting Border Calculator assists amateurs and hobbyists to make the necessary calculations for any project. All user inputs must be made using inches (").

SINGLE MAT

  • Step 1:Enter the Frame Width.
  • Step 2:Enter the Frame Height.
  • Step 3:Enter the Picture Width.
  • Step 4:Enter the Picture Height.
  • Step 5:Determine how much you want the mat to overlap the picture. Enter the Mat Overlap.
  • Step 6:Click the Calculate button.
  • Step 7:The calculated figures (width and height) are the inches where you place the parallel mat guide to draw your lines for the cut. This is represented by the 6" ruler found in between the aluminum channels which slides the parallel mat guide:

    Ruler

  • Step 7:Make your cut.

DOUBLE MAT

  • Step 1:Enter the Frame Width.
  • Step 2:Enter the Frame Height.
  • Step 3:Enter the Picture Width.
  • Step 4:Enter the Picture Height.
  • Step 5:Determine how much you want the mat to overlap the picture. The Bottom Mat becomes the Mat Overlap. Enter the Bottom Mat.
  • Step 6:Click the Calculate button.
  • Step 7:The calculated figures (width and height) are the inches where you place the parallel mat guide to draw your lines for the cut. This is represented by the 6" ruler found in between the aluminum channels which slides the parallel mat guide:

  • Step 7:Make your cut.

TRIPLE MAT

  • Step 1:Enter the Frame Width.
  • Step 2:Enter the Frame Height.
  • Step 3:Enter the Picture Width.
  • Step 4:Enter the Picture Height.
  • Step 5:Enter the Middle Mat.
  • Step 6:Determine how much you want the mat to overlap the picture. The Bottom Mat becomes the Mat Overlap. Enter the Bottom Mat.
  • Step 7:The calculated figures (width and height) are the inches where you place the parallel mat guide to draw your lines for the cut. This is represented by the 6" ruler found in between the aluminum channels which slides the parallel mat guide:

  • Step 8:Make your cut.

MATH EQUATIONS

Presented to you are the manual mathematical equations to determine the cuts for Single Mat, Double Mat, and Triple Mat respectively.

Single Mat Equations

These are the equations for the "Single Mat" cut.

  • w = Width
  • h = Height
  • w f = Frame Width
  • h f = Frame Height
  • w p = Picture Width
  • h p = Picture Height
  • o = Mat Overlap

w = 1 2 ( h f h p + o )

h = 1 2 ( w f w p + o )

Double Mat Equations

These are the equations for the "Top Mat" cut.

  • w t = Top Mat Width
  • h t = Top Mat Height
  • w f = Frame Width
  • h f = Frame Height
  • w p = Picture Width
  • h p = Picture Height

w t = ( h f h p ) 2

h t = ( w f w p ) 2

These are the equations for the "Bottom Mat" cut.

  • w b = Bottom Mat Width
  • h b = Bottom Mat Height
  • w f = Frame Width
  • h f = Frame Height
  • w p = Picture Width
  • h p = Picture Height
  • m b = Bottom Mat

w b = ( h f h p ) 2 + m b

h b = ( w f w p ) 2 + m b

Triple Mat Equations

These are the equations for the "Top Mat" cut.

  • w t = Width
  • h t = Height
  • w f = Frame Width
  • h f = Frame Height
  • w p = Picture Width
  • h p = Picture Height
  • m m = Middle Mat

w t = ( h f h p ) 2 m m

h t = ( w f w p ) 2 m m

These are the equations for the "Middle Mat" cut.

  • w m = Middle Mat Width
  • h m = Middle Mat Height
  • w f = Frame Width
  • h f = Frame Height
  • w p = Picture Width
  • h p = Picture Height

w m = ( h f h p ) 2

h m = ( w f w p ) 2

These are the equations for the "Bottom Mat" cut.

  • w b = Bottom Mat Width
  • h b = Bottom Mat Height
  • w f = Frame Width
  • h f = Frame Height
  • w p = Picture Width
  • h p = Picture Height
  • m b = Bottom Mat

w b = ( h f h p ) 2 + m b

h b = ( w f w p ) 2 + m b
