My freelance business has just launched, and my first clients are parents of dancers at a dance school. Let me know what you think of my current "white border default policy". I consider what I do art prints, and recommend maintaining the integrity of the image by not having the image cropped (the composition altered) to accommodate the variety of aspect ratios of standard print sizes. I explain in person that having white borders of varying sizes is a standard for art prints and that if the image is cropped in order to become a full bleed print, parts of the image will be clipped and it could be parts that they like. Also I state that an uncropped image with a white border gives the image some breathing room, gives the colors within the print a neutral, tonal reference point and visually allows the image to sit comfortably in a defined area. Plus it sets the prints up nicely for matting. After my hard sell, I do offer full bleed, cropped prints as an option. -------- 1. This is the norm right? All professional prints I have seen have borders. I thought I might have encountered some resistance or confusion since I am guessing a lot of my clients normally deal with borderless snapshots processed at their local Target or drugstore. But everyone has been cool and understanding. 2. What are your policies for printing?
