Is there a formula for setting margins?

Hello,

 

I have been experimenting and reading through this forum about proper margin settings and borders. I understand that the size of the border is based on personal preference as well as the ratio/size of the image. Is there a formula or a set of guidelines that can be used to determine margin settings based on a chosen border size? I am about to print 13x19 and would like to take the guesswork out of setting margins in Lightroom or Photoshop.

 

Thanks.

Here is an approach a noted fine art printer uses.

Thanks, I had forgotten about Martin's blog. This will be great starting point.
