when you do digital - do you print them out on photo paper & put them in an album or do you just save them on disk?
if you prnt them - what do you do to mak sure they dont fade over time?? thanx! i am clueless to digital scrapping
I just started printing my layouts since I had my son so for the most part, my layouts are just saved on my computer. When I print them, though, I size the actual layout down from 12x12 to 8x8 and put it on an 8x10 canvas. The reason I do that is b/c the photo places generally crop things in weird ways if you don't do it yourself. I then upload them to the Sam's photo processing center and have the 8x10s printed on matte photo paper. They come out BEAUTIFULLY! I then put them in regular 8x8 albums. I don't really know about them fading over time and I don't think anyone really will for quite some time b/c digital scrapbooking and photo printing in general is too new to have faded I think.
If I do full digital pages, I put them on my website as a digital album. If I just embellish one picture, or have a picture with some journalling, I will print it out and incorporate it into a paper scrapbook.
Make sure if you're printing them out that you print them to acid free photo paper, and use acid free inks in your printer. The acid is what causes the photos to deteriorate over time.
