    Just like the title suggests, how often do you print the photo's you take? I just recently started printing some of my shots in 4x6's to put in an album. I think I'm going to start making some larger prints soon though especially with my new venture into film.

    medium or large print to be framed 3-4/year
    books :
    holidays A4 or A3 size about 3 / year
    family ( mostly of my son with assorted members and occupations..) 2x 3 ex / year ( usualy 21x21cm/ 8x8inches )

    i didnt print small 10x13cm ( 4x5 inches ) or equivalent for years as we never look at them.

    Not enough. When I do print it's typically 8x10 or 13x19. A print does give me much more satisfaction and pleasure than one posted on my photo site.

    I might run an 8x10 every month or two, 4x6 proofs more often. If printers stopped existing tomorrow, I might not care. But a well done matte photo print is nice for the handful of keepers I have.

    Rarely and mostly for other people - display is via a 15" digital photo frame these days.

    In the last year I've printed twice, each time mostly 8x10s and a few smaller images. I'm with Gary - it's more enjoyable and satisfying to look at the photos hanging on my wall.

    When somebody asks/pays me to, or I decide I need an update to my printed portfolio.
  10. So rarely print it could be considered a reportable occasion.

    How often do you print

    Several times/ week. I don't print smaller than 8.5 x 11, usually 17x22 or 13x19.
