    I print singles images on a sheet. I cut the paper to pieces a bit bigger than the image, then I mount and frame.

    It is what I try to transmit when I thought in my frames, thick and more like "luxurious":

    But with 35mm I want to make it more affordable. Still in a nice frame but not in a such expensive one.

    Nice framing! I'm looking at doing contact prints of all my 6x6 and 6x7 work as I don't have room for a full enlarger at the moment.

    Marciofs I say go for it and see how it turns out

    What might work is the system that was used in nightclubs in the 1970s where you'd get a contact print of yourself and a friend at a table by the end of the evening. It was presented in a key ring holder which had a small magnifying effect so it seemed to be bigger. It was a bit like looking into a small slide viewer but with smaller magnification

    By itself a contact print of a 35mm neg is so small as to be of no interest to most people except for maybe a head and shoulders portrait of a "loved one" that fits into a tiny frame.
