    Somebody gave me some 32x50 (or so) trays a while back. Waiting to actually have a darkroom big enough to use them.

    I wish the 12 x 16 size was a common size here in Canada - prints of that size seem to appear significantly larger than 11 x 14, yet that are relatively easy to handle and display (when compared to 16 x 20).

    Ah, great! Since my Forte Bromofort is down to a few 8x10 by now.

    I couldn't wait so I built my trays to fit in a 7x8ft darkroom. And they do - just barely :

    That's a 20x28" sheet in the last tray.

    i used to like printing 16x20 ( or 20x24 ) but stopped
    and made a lot of 8x10 and smaller prints.
    i like small images sometimes

    I agree. MGIV is special order in the US and MGWT not available.

    Out of interest, what mount size would you use for a 12 x 16? 16 x 20 seems a little small, I'm using 18 x 22 at the moment, but wonder what others do with a 12 x 16.

    16 x 20 actually works very well for competitions or displays that include multiple prints from multiple photographers - the sort where prints are expected to be mounted but not framed.

    The prints almost seem to be straining to jump out of the mat, which can be positive in the right circumstances.

    For framing, I'd probably lean toward 18 x 22 or 20 x 24.

    Mostly 8x10 and 12x16 (Image sizes on these sizes papers vary though) I don't have fresh smaller sizes paper, so all the old Kodak and Agfa papers in 5x7 (and smaller) get lithed.....I doubt I will buy these sizes again.

    Why?

    I find it easier to work with these sizes and I like the results better.
