In my opinion it seems like trimmed border less pages of photographs are found on more gritty photozines. Large white borders are found more on those looking to be more artistic. Borders obviously work better on larger formats. The first photozine I made I tried to model it like a coffee table book with lots of white space and small blocks of text to identify photos. It was half letter size. I ended up with small photos that begged to be printed bigger.

With my 8 page 1/4 letter zine I print borderless front and back and no trimming is necessary. But with laser printing I doubt borderless is an option. I these kind of zines still look better without borders, but thats me.
