What is the proper/preferred way to iron your seams - open or over to one side?

I have always ironed to one side but recently read that it is better to iron open.

Any ideas?

it depends what you're doing. mostly seams get ironed open to make for less bulk so that's what i do unless there is a distinct reason to press them to one side. it's kinda the default.

I press to one side cause I think it adds strength. However, I press them open for triangles/flying geese as it makes it easier to match the points with a pin.
