That's about 4" top and sides and 8" at the bottom -- really looked strange. I definitely prefer the optical centering.

As many threads do, this one has wandered a lot. It was started about the framing, not the printing, but hey, it's all good clean fun.

Just another data point ...
I've very often seen square prints framed this way, with top and side equal and the bottom more than the other sides. Personally I like it.
