My usual frame size is 50x60cm (divide this and the following numbers by 2.54 in case you prefer to imagine inches) which to my mind fits 28.5 x 28.5cm squares as well as 28x35cm rectangles.
Now I have some pictures asking for a print size of 24x19.2cm (just fits 25.4x20.3cm / 8x10" paper). I made some drawings and I think that they *could* look good using 50x60cm frames but could as well look exaggerated and artsy. I have some 30x40cm frames at hand but they look thin and small. The logical choice would be 40x50cm frames but adding 40x50cm to my repertoire of frames would mean another size to stock in frames as well as mattes, backboards etc. Subjects are landscape details, stone structures, some wrecks/ships/boats, megaliths...
Should I leave my usual frame size to accommodate this series or should I try larger borders? I will have to order precut in a volume of 10 or more mattes to make it economical and will most likely *not* sell these pictures but exhibit them for some time and then get them back.
Thanks in advance
