Question about border size for matting an image...
Dec 8, 2007

Hi everyone,

I need some advice. I'm going to be selling one of my prints to someone so that they can give it away as a wedding gift. They would like it printed as a 12x18 and they are planning on having it matted and then framed. I was wondering how much border is required around the edge of the image itself. What I'm trying to say is, what size border should I put on the image itself in Photoshop and have it printed with so that none of the image is cropped by the matting.

Just to let you see, this is the image:

Thanks in advance for all the help.
