    I bought a box of 11x14 Ilford FB MG with the idea of cutting it and printing 7"x11". Then I started printing on 8x10 Polymax single weight and never got around to it.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Flotsam's approach is the correct one. Any 4:5 ratio (all papers are) when cut in half come VERY close to 2:3. Your full frame 35's will fit perfectly onto a half sheet of 11X14 ie. 11X7, or 8X5 or 16X10.

    6x9 is the size for 8x11, that leaves a 1" margin in each side, which is great for toning.
    You'll find after a while that cropping a bit here and there is the way to go

    when you cut 30x40 cm paper to two halfs, you take two 20:30 pieces - and that the ratio you are looking for.

    Just like Ann and Titrisol said to try, we printed 35mm @ 6x9 on 8x10 sheets in night class. No cropping required. If you want to trim the paper, you have handy test strips...

    I always print the full frame on 10x8 paper, aiming for an image of approx. 7 1/2 x 5. I usually mount in a 400mm square frame and i'm happy with the final results.

    This was my first post, and I appreciate the great response. I'm probably going to have numerous "rookie" questions about printing, and there seem to be a lot of very helpful people here. I have only used fixed easels, and am not familiar with the adjustable type. Is this what you would use to print some of the sizes suggested above, such as 6x9 on 8x10 paper, or on an 11x7 sheet cut from 11x14?

    Robert, I notice that you're in Kaneohe, Hawaii. I grew up in the next town over (Kailua). I've been gone 14 years, but sure miss it now and then!

    When I print 6x9 on a 10x8 I hold the paper flat in an fixed easel but size and focus the image on the paper so that it doesn't touch the easel borders.

    Nige,

    Does this method give you sharp image borders? I would have thought they'd be a bit fuzzy?

    a bit fuzzy. Depends on your neg carrier. If you want sharp edges then you'll need to mask the paper at the easel, and to do that with the paper/printing size we're talking about you'll either need a 4 bladed easel or to make up a mask out of cardboard (matt board with a beveled edge would work well I think).
