Paper Sizes

We are often dealing with various print sizes though there are a few that pop up more often than others. In particular A-sizes. A-sizes tend to be popular due to the standardised mounts and frames that can be bought relatively cheaply compared to custom framing.

A few things to keep in mind when ordering an A-size print:

Is your image file the right dimensions for an A-size? If not it may be a case of cropping your image to fit or going for a non A-size print.
