Everything you ever needed to know about print sizes and frames but didn't know where to ask!
All prints have a border.
This is to make handling easier as the printed surface is susceptible to marks and fingerprints. It also means that if you get the print framed there is some 'extra' space to help the framer when mounting. The border also has my initials and the edition number of the print you have bought.
Apart from handling with care may I also suggest keeping the print out of direct sunlight. This will greatly prolong the life of the print.
