: I would like to have my digi layouts printed...but, where and how?
Answer : This is also a very popular question. I find that one of the main reasons many paper scrappers are hesitant to try digi scrapping is because they are so used to having BIG pages to put in their albums…and do not want to lose that! I’m with ya! I HAVE to have my pages printed – LOL! I scrap in 12”x12”…occasionally creating an 8x8 or 6x6 gift album. Although...I have recently started working with 10x10 and am really loving the size!
All Shabby Princess designs are created at a high quality resolution so that you'll be very pleased with your final print.
For printing - I send the layouts out to a digital lab - WHCC - they are for professional photographers and amateurs as well :) They are AWESOME! The pricing for a 12x12 print is under $4...and under $3 for a 10x10 (I go with the lustre finish) and I cannot tell you how beautiful they look! I have also heard that Kinko's will print them for a little less...or you could crop to 11x11" (and mount to cardstock) and it will cut the cost a bit at Kinko's! Of course - you could opt to go with a wide format printer...Epson's are WONDERFUL! But, I still send my layouts off for printing! Finally – I have also been told that Costco will print them for under $3, and their quality is fabulous, too.
Then – I just slip the prints into a traditional scrapbooking album and VOILA!
There really are so many options when it comes to printing layouts! And, remember that you can always resize your 12x12's down to smaller layouts for easier and less expensive prints :)
