    Hey, I'm new here, but this looked like one of the best forums to ask for help on this.
    I am putting up a photography show at a local concert hall, and am working on captions and price list. I am selling all of the prints matted, with optional frames. Should I list matted dimensions, or photo dimensions? I have seen both.
    My mattes are standardized, for standard frame sizes, but the internal dimension vary per image. For instance, I have:
    8x10 print in 11x14 matte
    8x12 print in 11x14 matte
    12x16 print in 20x24 matte
    12x18 print in 20x24 matte
    16x20 print in 24x30 matte
    16x24 print in 24x30 matte

    I want to keep it simple and price it by matte size, but I don't want to "deceive" people with the size.

    I am leaning towards saying for example: "20x24 matted photo $100, framed $175"

    What do you all think?

    Matte size. They can see what size the pictures are. They just need to know what size the final is to put it in a frame.

    While I think specifying the matte size is a reasonable option, I think your chosen wording is confusing and could be considered deceptive. It very easily could be taken to mean (and I think the proper reading is) that it is both a matted photo and a 20x24 photo. Something like "photo in 20x24 matte" would be more proper.
