    11x14 is the largest I print now. My washer can only handle up to this size. But most of my work is on 8x10. I would love to get into 16x20 but I'd need trays and man is the paper expensive! $4.00 a sheet for my favorite, Ilford warmtone.

    My favorite too, and my feelings exactly re: price! I don't understand why it is so much more expensive than regular MGIV. It's nearly twice as much!

    i can print up to 16x20 but the largest print i regularly make is 11x14,
    or a 11x14 sheet with a large white border and 8x10 image in it.
    i also enjoy making very small prints on 8x10 paper, and if given the choice
    i would print small all the time.

    I voted 8x10. All of my work prints from 35mm, 120 & 4x5 are printed to 8x10 for evaluation. If I like what I see I can go as large as 16x20 but rarely do so.
    8x10's & 11x14's fill up wall space fast enough.

    The majority of my prints are 12x9.5 from 120 film with the occasional 16x12.

    11x14 can be handled easily. Larger is often a problem.
    Besides that for an exhibition i own 40x50cm frames, buying 50x60cm frames costs a lot more.

    I enlarge both from 120 and 4x5 to 11x14.
    The 120 is enlarged 11x11 (hassy) or somewhat smaller to fit nice in a 40x50 frame.

    So max size depends on:
    1) what you can handle in the darkroom
    2) what frame size is the destination

    8x10 is the largest I have printed but have got a stack of big trays now and some 12x16 paper ready to go, can't wait!!!

    Prolly get a MF capable enlarger before I venture into 16x20, it might be a tad large for 135...

    I use paper ranging from Ilford postcard stock, 10x15cm through to 12x16", but the majority of paper used is 8x10".

    The ratio so far this year, January to July, 2½, 100 sheet boxes of postcard paper. Nine, 100 sheet boxes of 8x10" paper. One, 50 sheet box of 12x16" paper.

    All RC.

    One box of 100 sheet fibre paper and half a 50 sheet box of 12x16" fibre paper.

    Mick.

    I shoot 4X5, and medium format both 6X6 and 6X7. I print on 11X14 paper in my own darkroom. It works great for the square format. I do my own matting and framing and 6X6 gives me a finished, framed and matted piece 16"x16", and for 4X5 and 21/4" X 31/4" framed and matted gets 16"X18". I go for the larger size mostly because my eyes are not as young as they used to be, and I don't have to squint as much to see what I've done.
