Can you upload these pages to some place to have them printed?? I know you would think I would have a printer but I always use my sister's. I am pathetic. I am pretty good with photoshop but never tried to do scrapbooking. I didn't even know people were doing this until recently. I am sure that I could make some cute pages but I don't see the point of it if I am just going to save them on my computer. Anyway, just wondering if anyone has any ideas on this. Or should I just fork over the money for a printer. LMBO.

there are many places that can print. Depending on your size. Costco... Wal-Mart... Target... I have heard great things about Costco. I have a friend that does mini albums. Does 6X6 pages and can print like 6 pages to a sheet at Costco on a 12X18 for like 2.99 or something...

Thanks Nicki! Now I am going to squeeze in time in my life for a hobby. I really think this will be fun. Going to try anyway.

It can get really pricie if you print at differnt places. I think in the long run getting a printer would be cheaper.

Patty you will love it!!!

I think if you are doing a page or two a month getting them printed is a better way to bo but if you do a page or two a day. Then definitely a very very nice printer is needed.

I agree that getting a printer will probably be cheaper in the long run.

I just wanted to say that if you're going to print the pages out, and you're making them in Photoshop, make sure that you set the resolution of the page to be about 450 pixels/inch in order to render the image for printing so that you get good quality prints.

It sounds like you're really creative, I can't wait to see some of your pages!

I know that you can upload to kinkos and pay online and just go pick it up, but I agree this can be very pricey and if you plan to do a lot of this investing in a good printer would be cheaper in the long run.

I would suggest getting a printer... it sure will be worth it in the long run. Until 2 years ago I use to get them done at stores. But my sister works at Cannon and I got a sweet printer! Id say just say go for getting one.

Actually, most digital scrappers I know upload and have htem printed ... when you factor in ink, paper and the cost of hte printer, it isn't that much cheaper to print htem yourself, especially if you use a high quality photo printer, ink is so expensive!

I upload mine to Sam's and have htem printed 8x8 (on 8x10 paper) for about 1.50 per page.
