    For framing, I'd probably lean toward 18 x 22 or 20 x 24.
    Thanks for the useful suggestion. I also noticed that a 12x16 mounted on 16x20 looks just about fine without a window overmat, but seems strained when overmatted and framed. So while convenient, matting 12x16 to 16x20 makes it hard to frame it later, meaning that a reprint would be necessary, hmm... Ideally, I'd settle on one print and mat size, and deciding that gets even harder when I think of square prints.

    When developed with Rodinal 1+50, I normally print the 35mm negs on 8"x10" ADOX MCC 110 leaving 1.5cm on all sides.

    For casual prints I use the MCP 310 of same size.

    I usually do 20 inchesx24 inches, although I have done 30 inches x 40 inches.
