Choosing the right print size

30x40 print size example

The session is done and you are looking over your gorgeous pictures. How do you decide what print size(s) you need? What print size will look best hanging in a hallway? What about hanging above a couch or fire place? Typically the best print sizes for hanging in a hallway or elsewhere on a wall (other than above big pieces of furniture) are 8×10 and 11×14. ┬áIf you plan on placing it on a desk, then a 5×7 is the way to go.

For pictures that will be hanging above a big piece of furniture or above a fire place you definitely don’t want to go lower than a 16×24. To give you a better idea between all the different print sizes I offer, here are some visual examples:
