I did a TFP shoot with a model, and I was fortunate enough to have a makeup artist. Anyway...The makeup artist and I agreed on some prints for her portfolio. She says the standard size print for a makeup artist is 9x12. Has anyone heard of this? I shot 35mm negative film, which is not proportionate to that size print. They can be custom made, but it would cost a fortune per print
Would it be possible to scan the images to roughly that size, then burn to a CD and give it to her to have printed? Any insight would be appreciated.

In the major markets -- 9x12 is the standard. This is the full-frame print from a 645 medium format frame....

You'll have to crop from 2:3 (35mm) to 4:3 (645). You could also buy one of the new Olympus E1's that use the FourThirds standard for sensor size and lens configuration...

The aspect ratio of 35mm film would yield an 8 X 12 print. Maybe that is what she meant and had the number confused. You might double check.

Problem with printing a 9 X 12 from a 35mm is that after sizing for the 9 inch dimension the long dimension will be approximately 13-1/2 inches. Thus, 1-1/2 inches from the long dimension will be lost to cropping. There is no way around it.

If 9 X 12 is what she wants then explain the cropping limitation. And, that might be fine with the images you created. You can size and crop the images and burn them to disk and let the makeup artist secure their own prints. Although most respondents here prefer to control that output also.

Just some things to consider.

There is nothing wrong with black borders on the sides to make up for the proportion difference. Then you crop nothing.
