I started printing 16x20 and 16x24 a while back and I am addicted to the size. I'm thinking getting some even larger. After seeing a really good image printed really big it is difficult to look at small prints now.

I don't really make small prints very often any more. I do the occasional small print on my modest home printer, but not for hanging or much showing. If I want small prints of a vacation or something I make a photo book.

For the large prints I use Mpix and WHCC.

Printing: the bulk are 8x10 or 11x14. My printer maxes out at 13x19.

Enlarging: again, mostly 8x10 & 11x14, but sometimes I'll do 16x20 or 20x30. Getting harder to source papers in the larger sizes...

Print sizes

I like making large prints, at home I'm limited to a 13" x 19" printer but at work we have a 60" roll printer at our disposal.

For dye inks I usually use Ilford Classic Pearl. For pigments inks I like Museo Silver Rag, Ilford Gold Fibre Silk, or Hahnemühle Photo Rag Satin.

I would vote for 8 x 10 and 5 x 7 but most of these listed are not common US sizes. So I didn't vote
