I voted none - however I have really gotten into photobooks these past couple of years and tend to print via that format - I have three so far from Blurb. They make great presents and are ideal for showing off your work.

About 20. Some hang in my living room, some get sold, some get exhibited, some are given to friends. For me, the photographic process ends with a framed print on a wall.

2011 for me was the year in which I came to realize that a photo is not a photo until it is printed and framed on the wall. Despite this realization, I only made 10.

I agree with you totally on this, though I have thought so for much, much longer.

Time to come clean, I voted 'None'.

In my defence, the year is only a few weeks old ().

And, I am in the process of setting up an A3+ printer to finally start making prints of my work this year! I've decided to get serious about it, so ask me again in 12 months!

Well, so there are dozens of happy snaps that get rotated through various 4R-8R frames around the house. These are mostly wife and kid stuff, but three images I dug out of the archives to put into some new frames in the bathroom are below. They all share the same general location and time period (in or around Chicago in the early aughts), same film (Scala with slight blue tint in post-process) and same system (Zuiko 18, 35 shift and 85). they make a nice tryptich of simple geometry.

3 Photos I really liked and put in my office at work. I planned to rotate them every quarter or so with a new set of photos but never got around to making another set. Plan to this week! Have some photos I like from travels in 2011... reminds me never updated my blog either.

I did like the idea mentioned on "The Online Photographer" to use a digital camera like film... each week limit your shots to the amount of a roll of film (your choice) and make one print per week. Cool idea but I never did it. Maybe this year.

I framed several small B&W prints and gave them as Christmas gifts. I also have a small "gallery" in a hallway at home. Three large black frames with matted B&W inkjet prints. I print to a standard (my standard) size and swap out the three prints every three months or so. I also try to maintain a theme for the three prints, with the latest theme being a set of images I took in Egypt (around Giza) back in 1978 when I was in the Navy.

50+ B&W prints and counting. All since January 1st. It's winter in the northern hemisphere which means cold weather and long nights. Making prints in my darkroom is a great way to stay involved with photography without taking any pictures.

Five so far, actually in frames. Well, OK, three that I shot. The other two were taken by a friend, Tom Livingstone, who lives in Colorado (he's good--he'll be famous someday). But hey, it's only January, and I have only so much wall space.

I print, mount, matte and bag 2 or 3 prints (all 8X10) a month on average.

I have 15 frames hanging up here and there and I just swap out those 15 pictures when I get bored with them.

Actually print, matte and framed only three for an exhibit.

Printed a few dozen, matted several of them. Perhaps 2013 will see greater production!

I finally did it!!! I have cluttered my walls with my photos and have been asked by a few friends for prints. Original rovers are now hanging in a number of homes.

Even though quite a few folks admitted selling (commercial) their prints skewing results toward a greater number of mounted prints, the numbers are still revealing.

2/3s of us make 5 or fewer mounted prints a year. There are an awful lot of very expensive 12, 18, 24 and 36mp cameras making web shots.

I only started to print my digitals in dezember so i only printed about 5.
I could not be happier and i should have made prints much earlier! The look, the "feel" and the appreciation is much higher.
However i now need to get a new monitor with true colors and brightness

Wait, it was for framed prints, not merely mounted ones, right? If we are going to count mounted prints we haven't framed, then I did seven not five. I'm sure that will drastically alter the survey results. Besides, I'll have you know I have made close to two dozen prints already, and it's only January. They are just not mounted or framed yet! It did say "this year," didn't it?

BTW, all the prints I made this year (month) have been wet prints, made in my darkroom. No megapixels involved!

Ask us again in December. I'll probably be up to nine by then!

Yes, sorry, framed.

This poll is a year old...

This past year I have printed a lot, however only framed about 8 as gifts (11x14 and 16x20 prints in 16x20 and 20x24 frames). I still don't have a single framed photo of my own!

In this regard yes. It is nice to see my photos out for display. The ones I like. And it is pretty easy. The frames i choose, matted for 8x10 photos are $11 at Ikea. I know there are much better ways to do this, but for my ease and to my eye.... I upload 300 dpi images onto Flickr and order prints through their system. 10 minutes of mounting and measuring and the art is on the wall. I hope this helps others see a low maintenance quick way to do this if that is their barrier.

I framed around 35 or so for am exhibit I have, still going on through April. It started in November last year, so I guess technically that was last year.

This was the first time I hired out the framing. There were some circumstances that put me behind in getting ready for the show, in addition, I printed much bigger than I am capable of mat cutting and framing myself.
