Does anyone know if and how you can do custom 4x8 photo cards at walmart....all I see is templates. Is there a way anyone has found to upload your own design?

If not where do you all get yours printed and how long does it take?

I don't know if you can upload a custom design for the 4x8 cards there, but here are some other options:

If you really want a full 4x8, you could always just get an 8x10 and fit 2 on a page. Then, just print it as an 8x10 and cut at home. They would cost $1.42 each that way. (Using Wal-mart's prices for in-store delivery)

If you can make do with a 4x7, you could print a 5x7 and crop off the extra inch. This would be $0.58 each.

If you can make do with a 4x6, they are only $0.15 each.

Thanks Cherise, I think we decided to go with a regular 5x7 it gives a little extra room anyway! :D

I do mine at Sam's club.
Their prices are good and they are pretty fast.

I just asked at Sam's the other day and they said just to bring your media in and if the jpg was 4x8 they'd print them :) I thought that was pretty cool, because I hadn't been able to find anywhere online to upload my own locally.

I ended up going with oversized postcards this year. Ordered them last night... hopefully they turn out nice! I thought it would be a fun way to send our greetings this year :)

Last year I did my 4x8's at walmart - two on an 8x10 sheet like was suggested above. This year, I found that Shutterfly, even with shipping is cheaper than walmart. I ordered mine yesterday and can't wait to get them!

I just do 5X7's at photoworks.com. They send me free envelopes, so that's a bonus :D I like freebies!

I usually design my cards and then buy the cardstock already sized at Walmart or Staples and print them at home. It works great for me.
