Timmie Print Test Print


I'm working on some prints for my shop. Not quite there yet, they are coming out uber-contrasty and dark :(. I will keep tweaking it.

What do you think is a good size? Right now the painting is at 100% with approx 1.5 inch border on 8.5 x 11 matte fine art paper. Should I trim it down to 8 x 10 so it will be easier to frame? Also, I was thinking making small 5x7 prints with a tiny white border, what do you think will be best?

I've seen sellers that leave the sheet as you have it here so that it can be trimmed however they decide. Personally I think bigger is better :)

i often wonder about this esp with images that are full bleed. say you did trim it to 8x10, would the 8x10 frame cover a little of the image anyway? is the border for people using a much larger frame?
i agree, best to try to give more options for the person doing the framing.
cute work too

see, i would prefer that the print be perfectly centered so i can go to aaron brothers and buy a cheap frame and pop timmie into it without hassle...

i think smaller is better, a group of timmie prints in 5x7 would be cute

What about doing a 5x7 with a white border that will make it 8x10? I always think prints look nice with a crisp border. :0)
