Very nice Ovi. What size do you print them?

A4, I'm all out of A3 paper which is my preferred print size (if it's worth a print then print big). I have some old Kodak Glossy Premium photo paper I bought off Oxfam for a few quid.
On the subject of size, is it just me? But I can't seem to find all that many other paper sizes here in UK beyond 6x4, A4, A3 or A2 ... Like all those odd inch sizes. Are those more common in USA?

Yes, the UK is all decimal! I well remember the days when we commonly used 16x20, 10x8, full plate (6 1/2 x 8 1/2), half plate and quarter plate etc. All in inches, of course! You need to get yourself a guillotine Oli.

It's on my to do list so I can get cheaper mounting boards and make them to my preferred sizes (A3 and A4). I also have drawings I made for the last 10 years that I really need to mount them up on a wall, I am tired of carrying them in a plastic folder through 3 countries and never seeing the light of day.
Just the printing stuff is starting to take 1/3rd of my living room space.

Think you could find 7x5 too if you wanted - I'm currently on the lookout for some 8x6, given it's the same 4:3 ratio as a micro four thirds sensor (meaning little to no cropping for printing) - trouble will then be finding adequate frames 😄
 
Ovi, I've been buying frames from thrift stores to hang my photos. Mostly they're A4 or smaller, this way I can fit more on the wall!

Because my living room walls have dark paint, I get frames with a gilt finish to stand out. It's hard to photograph them without reflections, but you get the idea...

Currently my favourite paper to use is some canvas-textured laser printer paper, it gives them an interesting finish.

It's a shame about the demise of Wilko here in the UK as their photo frames came in all the various sizes. Apart from that, they sold frames with different sized mounts within them, so you could accommodate virtually any sized photo.
It might be worth a look in somewhere like 'The Range', another cheap household store, who have bought out the Wilko name and I believe will be taking over a few of the defunct stores.
I'm sure you'll find one someone near you Ovi.
 
Not many takers in sharing their prints I guess? Anywho, I have reorganized my prints on the wall:

I put my large frame prints on the blue wall

I made the left side of the wall for my drawings. At the moment I have only one framed, I need to make some hand made frames because my drawings are on unusual paper sizes. I can't wait to put them up because they've been stuck on my travel case for over 10 years now.

I moved my Sparkles pictures on the white wall above the sofa and once I frame those I will organise them a bit better, try some A4 prints as well.

On the kitchen wall I will use the space for my personal work, the images I'm most happy with, probably leave them unframed so o can shuffle them around when I add more.

I will post later this week more prints, it's been a while since I made a few and I need to have a look on how I feel with the output of OM-1 since October last year.
