"I never changed my marketing from show to show. My small size was only available matted unframed. 8x10 matted 11x14 and I sold them for a decent price. I hung large framed pieces but only sold them unframed also. That way my display was always full.…"

"Went back and re-read your post and have one more thought. I don't like to offer the wall art in smaller versions. I have wall art and then bagged different prints in various sizes. But, as Larry said, I don't like to undercut my premium…"

"I assume you're matting to 8x10 and 11x14. If so, the small size, I think it is 5" is perfect for the 8x10 and the large size (9" deep I think) for the 11x14.  Larry has been selling massive amounts of images for 40 years at…"

R.C. Matteson commented on Chris van atta's blog post Print Bins | Photography | Anything I need to Know?
"I use propanel bins that attach to (hang from) the panels for 8x10,11x14 and 10x20 prints.  Very clean and effective and take up much less space in the booth and the truck.   "

Larry Berman commented on Chris van atta's blog post Print Bins | Photography | Anything I need to Know?
"The first thing you need to know is that if you intend to use a bin(s) in your booth at a show, it should be reflected in your booth image for jurying. Pro Panels has nice bins. I have a 30 inch bin for my light gray panels. If you have smaller…"
