Clip frames in inches not cms?!

It's doing my head in: all of DD school class photos are in inches (mainly 6x8 and one 8x10 inches), but any cheap clip frames, be they acrylic or glass fronted, are in flippin' cms...except that they don't exactly tally and a frame that is 21cm would mean I'd have a gap because the corresponding 8 inch side wouldn't be long enough.
Wanted to avoid sticking bits of white paper in behind the photos to bridge gap, or start chopping bits of photo off.
Really annoying that school photo companies still working in inches, but hardly anyone else is!

everything should be in inches.

And pounds and stones.

It is the proper way.

Last night, ds (9) asked me if I had any groats? grin

Tesco sell cheap frames in inches - I just bought a load

Ah thanks Dean. What is a groat even?!

Good old maligned and often hated tesco- but at least they still have the inch!

Btw, do you happen to have a link at all? Just had a look on and couldn't see them. Maybe they're just in store in the large stores? Thanks again.

Does it have to be a clip frame?

Lots of cheap ones here

Or Boots for clip frames

Not necessarily, but it's only for a few kids' school pics, so wanted to keep it simple. Ideally acrylic fronts even, rather than glass, but not essential. Boots are in cms too grr....will have a look at your other link thank you.
Are your tesco ones inches and clip frames?

Boots do inches too.

Have a look down the left hand side and you can select by size. They do a clip frame in each of the "x" you mention in your post.
