"I am not familiar with that printer. However, every decent pro printer I have ever heard of allows for custom sizing.  I would think even lower end printers would allow custom sizing. You could just print your 11x14 using the setting for 13x19.…"

"Thank you for the tip re: keeping an eye on water damage. And yes, I hope you are right that I am missing something. The Pixma Pro 100 does not give you 11x14 as a printing option, although it does odd sizes like "A" 11.7 x 16.5, and I…"

"How can your printer do 13'x19" but not be able to do 11"x14"?  That does not sound correct. Look at your configuration settings. I believe you are missing something. I did not have to raise my prices when going to archival…"

"@Larry, Thank You very much for the names of companies to prioritize when buying mat sets. I'm definitely looking to surround my images with excellent quality products. Question: when you started using archival products (that is, unless you…"

"There are 2 types of framing thoughts. A) The matte and frame are complimentary to and add to the photo. They work as one and framing enhances the overall image. Although this seems like a very good idea, if the matte is large and does not…"

"First off, I appreciate your input. Personally, I'm confident in my photography, but certainly the "business" side of mounting and selling has been an interesting hill to climb. Personally, I've never really printed paper photos…"

"If you have time go to an art fair soon and take a look at what the other photographers are doing. Larry’s advice is spot on. If you’re framing your work you might consider mounting."

Hello all!I'll be taking the leap into my first art show next month, and as I'm hustling to try and get all my inventory and supplies ordered/ready, I have some questions:1) All my photos are 8x12. I can find mats with windows that are meant for my size, but they all trim 1/4" off of each side of my photos. Some photos this isn't a big deal, but in other cases, it cuts off enough of the print that it just won't work. I do like the window look better, as opposed to just mounting the photo on a…See More
