why does a 3½x5 cost the same as a 8×10?

I can think of two valid reasons:

— It’s the same sheet of paper and the same time to print; even if sending to a lab the effort is the same, though the lab may charge more for a larger print.

— To discourage smaller print sizes.  Little prints get hidden away in a book, or a drawer.  Big prints look better and are more apt to be framed.
