I remember years ago, before I started down this venture, when I ordered prints I thought an 8×10 was HUGE, perfect for my walls. I find that often times, my clients think the same way. Did you know that an 8×10 is a desk print? Desk print you ask? Why yes, nowadays, I wouldn’t consider putting an 8×10 on my walls, they are in a frame at my desk where I work, because they just do not seem to make the right impact. It is amazing how quickly I have become spoiled to larger print sizes. In fact, I recently displayed a 16×20 of my newest little guy on the wall, and even my husband commented that it kind of looked too small!
In order to provide you with an example, let’s take a look at what the difference can look like on a wall.
Kind of shocking isn’t it??? I think it is important for my clients to determine exactly what it is they want out of their photographic prints. Identify where exactly you plan on placing your images before you order… use a tape measure to demonstrate how that size would look on your wall. I would hate for someone to end up disappointed in their prints because it doesn’t make the proper statement that it should on a wall!
