This is probably more relevant to the digi scrapbookers but very happy to hear from anyone - do any of you print your own pages at home on a printer? IF so do you do the full 12x12 or print at 10x10 ?

When I print -- I normally send them out because it's easier -- I print 12x12.  I happen to have a frame with a 12x12 mat in it -- bought from IKEA for some other purpose but never used -- and my albums are also that size. I have a Canon printer and I use their 13x19 paper.

I don't print at home. I send mine out to be printed 8 X 8.

Kristy I notice you're from WA.   Do you print from home because of a cost issue or a quality issue - with Australian printing companies?  Because if that's the reason, I get any of my pages that I want printed at Persnickety Prints and pay a flat fee of I think it's $10 or $15 for postage.  The quality is amazing and it's way cheaper than Harvey Norman or other such places in Australia.

Yes, if I am caught up. Twelve by twelve. I am thinking about getting some printed, though. I am behind on printing at the moment.

It's too expensive for me to print at home when you take into account ink and larger format printers that will print full bleed. MyPicTales or Persnickety are the industry leaders in printing, though Persnickety is the one with flat rate international shipping.


If I did print at home, though, I'd look into the Epson line of larger format printers. We used them at the prepress department to do color proofing and they were very good quality and quite accurate with color. The Epson papers were also top quality.

I bought a big epson printer many years ago and hardly ever used it.  Really need to get rid of it since we are trying to downsize extraneous items.  I guess I should fire it up, clean the print heads and see if it still works and try to get rid of it.
