I prefer books for myself. It is cheaper in the long run and such a nice finished product. I do print individual pages for hanging and for grandparents.

For books, I've print from artscow (which is not my favorite), shutterfly (definately my favorite, but a tad expensive unless I find a good coupon), and there is a newer site called inkubook (not quite as nice as shutterfly but better prices.

I print individuals through costco.

I'll print mine in book form. But I have it easy because I do mine in 8.5x11. So I can use just about any self-publishing site. DH uses lulu.com for his book/magazines. So I will probably use that as well.

Stephanie has done some beautiful books with really nice covers through one of the online photo places.

I think quite a few of the girls use Costco to print theirs and put them into sleeves.

I tend to jump around from project to project so often it's easier for me to buy scrapbooks and then print the pages off. I get my books from jo-annes, I just wait for a sale and a coupon and can usually snag a really cute one for super cheap. And the pages I just run at costco...i try not to wait until I have a ton to print because it can get expensive, I print them almost as soon as they are done that way they are a bit spaced out Smile

I print my 12X12 LOs at Sams on a 12X16 paper (about $3 a page) and put them in books. I've only just started actually printing them. My goal is to print 5-10 per month and I'll eventually catch up. Smile

I print mine on single sheets and put them in scrapbooks - although I haven't done it recently (I have probably over 70 sitting there to be done). I do this solely because I do not scrap in order - I love the look of a finished book, but since I don't do anything in order that makes it hard.

Oh, and I get them printed at Costco - they do 12x12 now as well, but I usually do 12x18 (for $2.99) and include 1, 12x12 and 2, 6x6's on it (and I give the 6x6's to grandparents)

My pages are 12x12 and I print them out as individual sheets because I don't scrap in order, and i like that it still feels like paper scrapping in that sense rather than getting it made into a book. I have printed from scrappingsimply.com 12x12 sheets are only $1.99 and shipping is a flat rate of $5 no matter how many pages you get printed. They have recently been running weekly specials. This week, if you spend $50, you save $10. Their quality is pretty darn good!
