Currently, What Are The Best Printing Services?
Posted 17 February 2012 - 10:44 PM
Thanks in advance for any help! I was about to have a few more LOs printed, and some photo cards to use.
I am so tired of businesses I love closing! Enough already.

I've used both SnapFish and Shutterfly - both offer free storage of photos and will print up books and other photo items. I've always been pleased with their products and the few times I wasn't they easily refunded my money or redid the project. They both have frequent sales and promotions.

For my landscape format book, I used MyPublisher. We were blown away by the superb quality and fast turnaround.

scrappingsimply does a twice yearly 25% off sale, and if you get on their mailing list (or perhaps after your first order, not quite sure), then you are invited to a pre-sale which is 35% off.
Oh, thanks for the info!

So I am a newbie who knows nothing but I do know I won't be printing my own pages. I am thinking that I will go with 8 x 8 although I have always done 12 x 12 in paper. My question is (and I know it probably sounds stupid) - once you have your pages in psd form - how to you get them printed by one of these companies that you are talking about? I have looked and it looks they they are geared for printing photos. How do they know to print on the right paper, bleed to the edge, etc.?
You save your layouts as jpg files for printing. That is the same type of file as the photos. After you've created the page, choose "Save As" and choose JPEG. After you choose that, another box will pop up asking you to choose the quality. This is how much it compresses the file (the more compression, the more quality loss). I always choose 12-the highest number.
My Gallery I scrap with Photoshop CS6, but can help with older versions: PS7, CS2 & CS4.

They also print letter-size, and it's about the same price as an 8x8. Individual 4x6 prints are 13 cents.
They recently started offering photobooks at $24.99, though I have not ordered one yet.
I have also done a little home decor digital scrapping, and just last month, I printed a really large print to mount on a canvas (20x24 print size or something like that) and it was less than $8.00. It was not mounted (they offer that, but at a substantially higher price).
I can send the digital files to Costco from my computer (or bring it to the store on a thumbdrive or CD), and it's almost always ready to pick up about an hour later.
Just a little more input for you....

I am looking at options to print 8.5x11 since my printer just died, but few companies print the 8.5x11 size. Scrapbooks Please and Scrapping Simply are the only 2 I've seen so far.
