Canvas Frame Size Chart F P M S Sekaido

after shooting my friend's wedding and mounting some canvas prints i ordered from AliExpress i decided that there are a couple of things that would have been really useful. A list of standard sizes of stretcher frames and a size chart for a real(ish)-world comparison. 

So I made them. I'm sure I'm missing out on some of the nuances of (the very French named) Figure, Paysege and Marine canvas types. I've noticed that some of the sizes are similar to others but as Sekaido doesn't have all the sizes on stock, I forwent (grammar?) color coding the spreadsheet. 

If you, too, want to have a print made and mount in in Japan, I present to you some of the things you might want to know. Feel free to reproduce and/or reuse as you see fit but credit where credit's due, please ;)

Size in millimetres:

 

Price in Japanese Yen as of June 2015:

Available sizes from the store on AliExpress in inches (Note: the international A size is only there for comparison purposes, also when I originally made this in Illustrator, I actually sized the male and female figure to the heights of the bride and groom 5'3" and 5'9" respectively.
