That is great! I really like the formatyou use.



One of the things I do is make trading cards for the kids. You can get nine on an 8.5x11 sheet and with the right program you can also do stats on back. Something you may want to consider (and I recommend personally) is a Canon Pixma Printer. I am about to buy the iP6000D for printing photos, it will replace a Canon S750. Not only do they do a good jobprinting photos but, and this is a major point I feel, they use seperatecolor ink cartridges. The iP6000D take six. The nice thing there is that when the blue runs out you replace only the blue not a multi-color cartridge that may have plenty of yellow and Magentaleft in it. I have found this system to be the most economical to use and I print a LOT of photos.

Again I think that is a really good jobyou did.

Great job - very creative. No wonder your kids love them.

I've also been trying to be a little more creative with my pics, adding borders etc (no kids to take pictures of yet - hopefullythat will change at the end of the year!) but have had trouble with the photo lab cropping them all the time.

I supply them at exactly at 6" X 4" @ 300 dpi and they get cropped, every time.

Did you ever encounter this cropping problem?

Any info would be appreciated.

Cheers

Jev

i usally try to crop them myself if i think they are close.

I use the 1hr. at walmart most of the time and i use my site on shutterfly.com

my site is www.wvshutterbug.com

i print my own cards and cologes and try to crop a little before for team so they come out better. its according to the size you are printing too.

good luck

I make cards for Florida State League minor leaguers, I usually make them for myself to get signed by the players... but so many have wanted copies that I've started to mail them out. I'll post an example sooner or later.
