Default Help! Which to print 3x5 or 4x6 for scrapping?

I am ashamed to say I haven't scrapped anything since I have had a digital camera (2 years!)

We just took a trip and I am going to scrap it. I always ordered 4x6 prints from 35mm film but would crop a lot of the background out to focus on whoever/whatever was in the picture. In the pictures I took on the trip, I want to keep a lot of the background in.

Can I have your opinions on what size prints to print out?

Thanks a bunch!

I generally do 4x6 for that reason so I have a larger size if I want and I can always crop out to fit.

I also do 4x6 for my books. The only exception is for some 6x6 albums I prefer 3.5x5 pics. Happy Cruising!

I print my own photos from digital and do the focal pic slightly larger. Depending on the page and layout, I would print wallet as well.

Thanks for the ideas!

Wallets sound cute and I would never have thought of that!
