    if I'm doing some prints (8x10) that I'm just going to tac on my wall, should I put a border on the picture?

    border/no border... black vs. white :dunno:

    1.99 for 8x10 prints from mpix
    14.00 (give or take) for a frame, matte, and glass from www.framedestination.com

    and they will look so much better mounted on your walls.

    unframed pictures taped to the wall look like complete fucking garbage.

    Why would you spend the time to print out one of your photographs, just to make it look like trash?

    buy a fucking frame. Or leave the image on the computer.

    :werd: looks cheap like a college dorm room, wal-mart/target has inexpensive frames that will look fine.

    We have tons of old tan ones that we're going to sand and stain, which Ikea sells, so they'll all match. Now just to find new stuff to put in them :hs:

    the most expensive ones are the ones that hold a ~16x20 which are only $25
