    Common Sizes for Fine Art Papers

    What are the common sizes of fine art papers used for printing "11x14" and "16x20" negatives?

    I'm trying to decide on tray and contact print frame sizes, and sometimes it's best to be able to have something large enough to fit the entire piece of paper, versus just the negative.

    I appreciate all the information that I've received to get going in this new endeavor. Thanks.

    I have found I need at least 1.5 inches above the neg size to comfortably coat the paper, and in fact choose to use 2 inches on each side. So for 12x20 I use papaer of dimensions 14x22 and for 8x10 it is 10x12. If you are planning to do 16x20 IMO your best bet is to have 20x24 trays, there is not thing more annoying than a tight tray.

    Jorge,

    Just checking. You indicated two inces on each side. Is that the long and short side, which would be more like one inch on each of the four sides? Except for the 16x20, that's what's indicated by your dimensions.
