You can rotate framed prints. Change them out periodically. Metal frames with spring steal clips make this easy to accomplish. If you go for better quality wooden frames, then all you need is a framing point driver:

My father in-law used a couple of display easels, with a stack of matted and backed, but unframed prints on each. He would put the top one to the back every few days. And, if you wanted, you could easily flip through them. There are lots of designs:

And while we are there, you may want to consider 17 x 25 inch paper. It is a much better ratio for most things. It gives you a 16 x 24 inch (2:3 ratio) image with 1/2 inch borders all round. 13 x 19 inch paper does the same for a 12 x 18 inch print.

Brian, rotating framed prints was one of the first thoughts that came to my mind, but I did not know enough to judge if it was practical. I have been reading your informative posts in this forum and do value your opinion. So, as you have suggested, I will start with a few metal frames. I would need matte and backing and tape or corners along with the frame, right?

17x25 paper would be ideal and I do not understand why Epson does not have a selection like they do for 17x22. I saw Red River has some, but none seemed exciting. Do you have any suggestions, and are profiles for these available?

Thanks.
