details about merchandise

Ron's selection of product sizes and product types for these images was determined primarily to reflect an aspect ratio of 3 by 2, and also to ensure high quality enlargements for the larger sizes. these formats also influence the selection of images for photo merchandising on

as some print industry practices yet reference legacy inch measures, some of the sizes of print or canvas products might be named in terms of legacy inch measures. any such reference to legacy measures however doesn't detract from the quality of the images. yet unlike metric measures, legacy measures are not as readily comparable with other measures.

supposing that many photographic production systems can be configured with reference to millimeter or meter, designers who metricate can save time and improve quality across a variety of typical design scenarios. consumers can also compare different measures more clearly if the measures are metrically related.

Ron says 'way to metricate!' to those industries and consumers who are proactive in using metric rather than legacy measures. serious consumers can also let companies know that metrication can be more valuable and doesn't have to be approached remedially.


shopping for a mug photo product?

because Ron is strongly committed to offer quality image merchandise in ways that can reflect the use of best practices, the following information is provided about mug sizes.

because a scale of fluid ounces cannot be so readily compared with other measures, Ron likes to think of the mug sizes as large or small.

as the liter (as well as the milliliter) is a metric measure, it is readily comparable with other metric measures. throughout the world many people are for a long time familiar with liter or milliliter measures. thus,

the large mug can hold a good 350 ml (or about a third or more of a liter) [legacy size name of 15 oz]

the small mug can hold a good 250 ml (or about a fourth of a liter) [legacy size name of 10 oz]

please also keep in mind that the mugs are quality drinkware or photo collectibles, and are not intended for purposes of measurement.

a modern consumer or merchant can entertain the valuable fact that the only measures that anyone really needs are metric measures! so get to know the liter, milliliter, kilogram, gram, meter, kilometer, and any other metric measures that a serious shopper can really use better!
