    I'm looking to get a couple of images printed so I can display on the wall. I am looking at something along the lines of 30"x20" size. I am after advice/examples on a number of areas; paper to use (will be done by a lab, probably DSCL), do I print in a boarder?, do I mount? how do I frame?

    If anyone has got links to sites for examples or images of what you have done to display on the wall them please share.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I have used DSCL numerous times but have yet to try their pearl finish. Mainly lustre is my choice with gloss on a few occasions.
    Printing in a border is down to personal choice really, how do you wish the finished article to look? I mount my own prints but nothing as big as what you are looking at. The largest print I have mounted is 16"x12" these have gone into mounting board 500mmx400mm bought from Cotswold Mounts. DSCL can print with or without a border, your choice but it's only around 5mm, just enough to overlap a mount aperture.
    Framing, again personal choice. I have had a few bespoke frames made but they are expensive. Alternatively you could source a frame ready made, probably with mount board already cut and print to the ratio accordingly. HTH.
