    Re: What size paper do you print the most? What's the biggest print you've made?

    My portfolios are printed mostly on 11x14 paper (various aspect ratios). I like 16x20 on a 28x32 board really well for exhibitions and display in large enough rooms. I print detail subjects and some still lifes on 8x10 paper, but for most work, 8x10 is too small for me (one reason I've never moved to an 8x10 camera and contact prints...). I've got capacity in my new darkroom for up to 20x24 but have yet to make any that size. Soon...

    8x10 contact prints.
    7x7 "enlargements" from 6x6cm camera.

    In a darkroom, most prints were 8x10 for ease of distribution, with some 11x14 and rare 16x20 for exhibiting. Most digital prints are 8.5x11 with some on 13x19 and few on 17x22 paper.
