    Default screen frame size for 18x24 prints?

    I'm preparing to attempt my first 18x24 inch print... what size frame do you recommend and or which size frame have you had the most success with? thanks...

    I use a 30x40 screen for that size, just because I like the extra ink room, especially when doing split fountains.

    24x36 works? won't you only have a couple inches from the sides of the image to the frame? seems kind of tight.

    I think the general rule of thumb is to take the size you'd like to print and add 6 inches to get the minimum screen size you'll need. But you can certainly have bigger screens than that.

    28x36" at least

    24x36" is way too narrow IMHO.
