^ I've also been tempted a few times to trim a test print that I wanted to frame but so far haven't done it. Is it not done or does it effect the value? IDK. Maybe others can weigh in.

^ As Irevv— pointed out above, we have some tests that were printed off-center with larger borders on two sides. If one were to frame these it seems like you'd want to trim those two sides to center the image. But if that alteration is a breach of archival standards maybe you could frame as is. What do think?

Any time I’ve seen a poster for sale that was trimmed it has been considered a serious flaw that greatly diminished its value

If I really like it, I trim it and frame it (happened only once though). Otherwise, to the flatfile it goes , which is a shame; but I currently have only 3 prints like that, including the trimmed one, I believe. Also, I don't particularly care about test prints and don't really understand why they are sold for more than the actual print most of the time. Sperry is rather is an exception though. I remember I almost wet my pants when fallstaff posted the Dryad test he obtained a couple of years ago (edit: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=94944&p=3318094#p3318094, almost wet my pats again, when I found it :lol:)

^ Thanks for the responses. I guess it's a better idea not to mess with the tests. Here's the Dragons test (one of ricv's KAWS!) I was thinking about framing but I'll leave it whole.

Bubbie, haha, luckily I was in the right place at the right time to score that Dryad double-sided test. Generally Sperry's regular run outranks any test print but here I think that Dryad is an exception and eclipses even the panel I have on the wall at home.
