The frame will take about an hour to print, each stand about 30 minutes at 50 - 70% fill. A higher fill percentage makes a sturdy frame with a good base weight. The stand slot is designed to be a tight fit, you may need to trim and manually finish the print. Wallet size photo prints are easily home printed or ordered online, Amazon has a great overview of options for this task: http://uplink.to/7ei

The slot can be cleared of any overhangs by inserting a corner of the frame and sliding it across. The frame inserts at an optimal desktop viewing angle. If you want to wall hang the frame use a small nail or hook to fit the rear mounting hole on top side for the orientation.

Wallet size photo prints are usually delivered as a set of four on a 4" x 6" sheet with no white border separating the photos. After you cut the sheets yourself, each of the four wallet-sized prints will be 2"x3". The frame is printed with overhangs on each side, horizontally bend the photo print slightly and release into the the frame. You may need to trim the photo to fit.

it looks great, just maybe my printer didn't print it so well, can't connect two parts easy, almost break it. But still it is great!
