Default Bottlecap Questions..please help!!

Ok...I thought I was going to print my images out on photopaper at walgreens but it seems expensive. I ordered some images online and it seems that I need to print them on 8x10 to get all images..my question are..

1. Do I have to use photo paper?
2. Is there a way to print on 4X6 ( I know I would have to do more than 1 for each sheet i have but its cheaper)
3. If I use just regular paper does the final bottlecap look as nice..can you even tell?

I would appreciate everyones input on this..

Thanks in advance!

i find for best results to use photo paper. I buy mine at the dollar tree for $1. It comes in a pack of 8 size 8.5x11. The brand name is Special Moments. I have tried with regular paper and my image aways runs. I hope this helps.

If you don't use photo paper the image will most likely run. You can get a pack of pretty good quality photo paper at CVS for around $6.

I'm the odd one out. I print them at school on a big laser printer and use regular paper. I've never had one bleed and they all look really good. Can't imagine it would look any different with a photo paper.

I do mine on 4 x 6 photo paper. The ink bleeds on regular paper for me.

I have used on the full sheet sticky label paper on a color laser printer, and the turn out perfect. I have never had one bleed.

Did you make your images or buy them from someone? If you bought them, contact the seller & they will usually change them to a 4X6 format. It will cost you a fortune to print anywhere on the 8X10 sheets.
