Subject: [Leica] How to hang prints

I have 30-40 prints hanging all over the house. I have frames in three 
sizes, which have detachable backs so that you can change the prints, and I 
have mattes made to fit the frame, and show the standard sizes I print - 
A4/Letter, A3+ and A2. This way I can change the prints around as often as I 
want. I use museum quality materials for framing my collection prints, and 
use inexpensive stuff for my own - after all, I can always print another 
copy if need be!
