Magazine 10
Magazine 10\" x 13\" w/UV Mylar bag

Frames are based on Mylar Bag sizes.  Magazines come in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. Customizing the thickness is no problem, but has to be done in the note section. Examples would be 1/8", 3/16", or 1/4". A 36 page comic is about 1/6" thick. 80 pages is about 1/8" thick. 126 pages is about 3/16" thick. 

Choosing the right size can be difficult. In general you need to add at least 1/2" (one-half of an inch) to the magazine width to choose a bag size.

A new Heavy Metal magazine measures 3/16" thick ( 126 pages), and a little over 8" wide by 10 7/8" tall. This fits just fine in a 8 3/4" x 11 1/2" Mylar without having to fold the top over. You could fold it over a little on the top, but the frame hides about 1/8" of the top, and you have a little extra space around the edges anyway so it makes it look uniform.

The most that will fit in a 8 3/4" x 11 1/2" Mylar bag is about 8 1/8" to 8 1/4" for a 3/16" thick mag, and 8 5/16" wide for a 1/8" thick magazine. 11 1/8" to 11 1/4" will fit height-wise. I can adjust the frame height depending on the magazine height.

I do recommend using the Mylar bags, but if there is something that doesn't fit in a bag, or you simply don't want to use a bag, you can always order your size and specify that you want a custom fit frame for your magazine without using the bag and just give me the measurements and thickness of the magazine. Please order the correct size frame though.
