| p.1 #4 · Best print size for lap viewing |
For portraits (let's say head and shoulders), what would be the best 2x3 print size for someone looking at art prints while holding them? I'll use high end matte paper.
I typically print at least 20x30 or 16x24 for exhibits and want to try a smaller size for someone holding them and shuffling through say 6-10 images.
With less than a dozen, I would go with 12 x 18 on 13 x 19 with half inch borders. Or borderless 8 x 12 or 13 x 19. For larger numbers, A4.
Would spraying the prints make them feel better in the hand?
Depends on the paper. With fine art papers, no. With lacquer sprays, the surface is harder and stiffer, more abrasion resistant, UV resistant, moisture resistant and finger resistant, but it doesn't feel quite as good. With fibre papers, spray adds protection and there is little discernable difference to the feel. With RC papers, who cares anyhow?
