What size to print?

I'm not sure what size I should print out my digi pages? I went to the photo place on Saturday and the biggest size was 20x30 cm. But I think I want it 30x30 or somewhere in between 20 and 30 but even on all sides, kwim? Wouldn't it turn out kind of funky if it got printed 20x30? The album that I am buying has 33x33 clear sheets in it that i'm going to put the pages in. I guess I might have to ask them myself if they can do it the size that I want? It was too busy in there Saturday and one kid working the counter so I didn't ask. What size do you print our your pages? I don't think I want them 20x30 because either it will look squooshed or part of it will be cut off. I can't wait to get these printed. I'm going to try to do it this week. Her first year album is about finished. Just two more pages left. Smile Just in time for the MIL to see them. I just hope they turn out the way I want them!

I get mine printed 12"x12" because that's what the books I use are. is there another place you can have them printed so you can get the 33x33 size? did you make the square? that's the big question. if they're square on your computer, then you should find a place to print them square to preserve your aspect ratio or to preven extra white space.

well yeah i could go to another place but its like miles from here lol this place is really close by but i think i can ask them personally if they can change them to the size i want them. i have to ask first if not then i might have to go somewhere else. i want to send it in to get printed cuz its much cheaper that way. so we'll see

Yep, find a place that will print in the size of your book. Office priting shops will usually do it. They are used to printing different sizes.

I make square pages too and you want to stick to square prints or you will lose part of your page.

Can you find a place online where it can just be shipped to you?

umm not sure.. norway is really bad about having things shipped to your house. There aren't very many websites out there that actually ship to your house. You have to go to the actual store usually Smile sucks..
