  • what am I doing wrong

    When I send the page through the internet to wal-Mart and 8x10 the heads were cut off so I went bigger 11x14 and pictures were all there but some of the page design was cut short as well as embellishments. Am I doing it wrong. It is costly by to many mistakes. The 11x14 is almost $8 to do. Can you come up with an answer

    I’ve found an affordable way to print 12x12 pages, without having part of them cropped off by the developer.

    I've gotten samples from Scrapbooks 2 Share (sbtoshare.com). The samples were very good, and cost about $1.75 ea, plus $5 shipping per order (I think.) However, I'm very picky about my photos, and the photos on the page just aren't as good as ones I have developed at my local photo store.

    So I tried an online photo developer (fotki.com). Because these are actually photos, the whole scrapbook page is on photo paper (archival paper and ink). The photos on these layouts are every bit as good as photos from my local photo store, especially the one on glossy paper. The cost is $2.50 ea, plus $2 shipping per order. You must also be a member at $30/year to be able to send big enough files that will print out high quality at the 12x12 size. The catch is this: I had to print on 11x14 paper. To keep from having parts of my layout cropped off in the printing, I designed my page at 11Hx12W. When I was done designing the page, I then had SBM change the size of my page to 11Hx14W, telling it 'no' when it asked if it should re-arrange my page to fit the new size. It simply extends the background paper to 2 inches wider. I sent it online to Fotki to print as an 11Hx14W. When I received it back, I just cut off the extra 2 inches from the side. I put it into my plastic protector, and I have an 11x12 page. Not quite 12x12, I know, but I can live without that extra inch of height.

    I also received samples from ezprints.com. (They are also excellent, but I think Fotki's colors are closer to what I saw on my computer screen.) I did the same thing with them as I did with Fotki, as far as the size of my pages. Their cost is $3.47 ea, with $2 shipping per order. I see they also have 12x12 (they call them panorama prints) for $4.50 ea. I'm not sure it's worth an extra $2 per page to me to get that extra 1" height.

    Just a note regarding all 3 printer places: You have to lighten up the pictures you're putting into your layout. They print darker than what you see on your screen.

    I'm really excited about this! I can have all the flexiblity of digital scrapbooking, yet still get as high of quality photos on my pages as I've been using on my paper pages

          There won't be any duty as it is coming from the USA and made in the USA. The post office would charge you GST and PST as usual, plus a $5.00 handling fee. Since you always have to pay GST and PST, the only difference is the post office handling fee. Shipping rates are the same for both USA and Canada - $4.95 per order.
