    8x20 print materials

    I'm currently just trying to get my arms around using my Korona 8x20, so I'm not currently up to the challenge of learning alternative processes at this time.

    My question is, those of you shooting 8x20, or 7x17, etc., what do you print to when not doing an alternative process? Seems like I could cut down 16x20 print paper, but this leaves no room for a border. Same with using 20" roll paper from Ilford, etc.

    I'm looking to use a fiber-based paper, would like to have at least a little border to make matting easier, but don't want to waste huge amounts of paper, for economic and environmental reasons.

    Would 10" roll paper work? 1" borders.

    The only 10" rolls I've been able to find are RC, not fiber.

    Terence,

    I just cut some 16x20 in half and some in 10x20. You can use the 6x20 stripes for testing.

    ... or use 20x24 paper, cut into 2 12x20 sheets and you have a 2" border top and bottom.

    Cut down 16 x 20. The actual image size should be less than 8 x 20 anyway. The actual size on 7 x 17 is more like 6 1/2 x 16 1/2 for actual image size...

    I cut down 20 x 24 for my 7 x 17's as well. Don't see why this wouldn't work for 8 x 20 too. I use MUCH smaller sizes for test contacts....to mazimize paper. Pick a small area with lots of tonal range..

    I always cut 20x24 into 10x24 sheets which gave a nice borders for handling.
    I made trays to fit the 10x24 paper and save sink space out of plexi.
    works great.

    for 8x20 storage I get a 16x20 box and divide it in two sides. I get 16x20 acid free paper from light impressions, fold it in half, and keep the negs in there.
    More on trays and stuff later.

    Peter,

    I'm new to 8 x 20 myself. Just today I got my order from clearbags.com - you can get film storage sleeves pretty inexpensively ($13.00 for 100 clear bags that are 8 7/16" x 20 1/4". I plan on making a storage box or two out of foam core so I can make it to just the size I want.
