View Full Version : 12 x 12 printing

08-16-2005, 12:19 PM
I am new to the Digichick forums and am having a great time. I have learned all kinds of helpfull things. Thank you for such a great site!

I am trying to find out where to get paper to print my layouts. I have a 13 x 19 printer and when I first got it Office Max had 13 x 19 presentation paper. I really liked it and it wasn't to expensive, but they stopped making it. I can't print a 12 x 12 edge to edge so I have to use bigger paper and cut it down. That's fine, but I can't find any that is not really expensive. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have tons of layouts just waiting to be printed! Any information would be great!

Some suggestions:

Try printing on white or cream cardstock, if you still have a stash from paper scrapping days.

Resize your 12x12 layouts to 8x8 for printing.

I use Costco to print mine. (They print 12x18's) so I get one 12x12 and 2 6x6 layouts printed at once. Or you could try the 8x8's, too. I really like that size. (It's actually my size of choice. I only printed the 12x12's for the MMM contest...)

I just printed my first 12x12 at costco... it came out so good. I did the same as Marsha. I would highly reccomend Costco if you have one nearby. Only $3 for one 12x12 and 2 6x6's.

I also recommend Costco for 12x12 - I did all my entries for MMM with prints from Costco. Earlier, I was just trying to provide options that you could print from home.

Thank you for all your input. I would print them at Costco, but my husband will kill me if I don't use my printer. It's big enough to do 12 x 12 and it wasn't cheap! :retarded: I have the ink and everything already. I just need to paper. I am looking around at a few printers and that sort of thing. Hopefully someone will have what I need.

Thanks again.

I can't get my printer to do edge to edge yet. So 12 x 12 cardstock is out. I have tried it, but I really don't like having to have a border all around it. And it doesn't always print perfectly straight.
