    Ditto 14x16 here. I just like the ratio and looks and feels right to me.

    Contact Printing Frame

    My current frame, from Photo Formulary, has interior dimensions of 9X11 & front opening of 8.5X10.5. I'd prefer something more snug so that I could lay both the paper & negative in place without adjusting one to the other. This would be especially nice if I ever produce large numbers of prints from same negative.

    i don't know about you, but i have matted and framed a bunch of 8x10s (some even smaller) in 16x20 mats and frames. matts usually are 4ply but some are 8ply and they look really nice. its not for every print though, some look better not floating in a sea of snow white matt board. i asked the gallery that was displaying them if they would go smaller they looked at me, smiled and said: " they are perfect "

    I would rather use one size up. It allows me to use a larger piece of paper than the neg I have have the otion to print a bigger neg in the future. My 8x10 frame is 9x11 and I print 5x7.

    I find it funny how people are really talking about TWO totally different things here. Half the people are talking about what size they mount, mat and frame there finished 8x10 prints, and the other half of the people are talking about what size CONTACT PRINTING FRAME is right for 8x10 negatives.

    Just to reply to both topics- I like an 8x10 CONTACT PRINTING frame for 8x10 negatives, because then you dont have to deal with the negative moving or anything like that. You just slap the negative and paper into the frame, close it up and expose. There is not worry about if the negative drifted away from the paper.

    About what size to MOUNT, OVER-MAT, and FRAME your 8x10 photographs, I prefer 14x17.
