  • Printing companies

    Hi again. Another newbie question. I was wondering if anyone has used the company whcc for printing their scrapbook pages. I did a test and they came out great.

    I have also heard of sbtoshare. I haven't tried any testing prints with them yet. But has anyone tried any of these companies and what are your thoughts. I am looking for a company that is cheaper but will print on real photo paper and not photo quality paper. There is a difference.

    These are the 2 that I have found. Any other suggestions???

    Now, no hard feelings as I see SBM has this possibility but I don't want to pay that much for one printout.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    The prices for Scrapbook MAX! prints are very competitive. You can see the details at The big difference compared to any "cheaper" places is the quality. Each print is on actual photographic paper - "developed" rather than inket or laser printed. The quality can't be beat. As you mentioned, there is a big difference, and you definitely get what you pay for. Try it!
    Scrapbook MAX! 2.0 is here!. It's simply better digital scrapbooking software!

        PS: I have just used my 25 year service vouchers from my employees on a laser printer *have I wasted my money?* I thought laser was superior to inkjet?

          other printing options

          I’ve found an affordable way to print 12x12 pages, or almost.

          I've gotten samples from Scrapbooks 2 Share ( 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 ( 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 (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. I don't know if they a membership fee.

          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

            I don't know if they ship to Australia. I guess you'd just have to check out their web sites.
