Default Printing bottle cap images

I am trying to print my 8 1/2 x11 sheets of 1 inch circles at a photo place on line. Any ideas- my choices for sheet sizes are 8x12 which was too big, or 8 x10. I can't print them at home and now have all these sheets that I don't know if I can even print! ARGGHH!

I do mine on a 4x6 you get 15 images per sheet.

The seller might be able to resize the image sheet without affecting the size of the circle! I might would talk to her about it.

Yes, ask the seller to resize for 8x10 or 4x6.
I only sell mine as 4x6 for this reason.

Oh Hi, Cristi, yours were some of the 'good' 4x6 ones that I had no problem with. I love the ones I got from you, crystal clear images and great colors. Thanks!

My husband is going to print the 8x10's at work on their laser printer using glossy paper. Anyone try this?

I was wondering if your circles are 1 inch x 1 inch? I printed some and I can't figure out why they look smaller, I sent them to the photo lab. The ones I made are bigger so I don't know what I did wrong. I love the channel images, thank you.

as for printing a 8.5 x 11 sheet, maybe the images are for printing at home, I would try that and see if that works. I thought they made photo paper in 8.5 x 11 sheets? I have sold images that were full pages and no one ever brought that up, so they must be printing them some how.

I don't know why they would be smaller. I have seen many caps and tiles with the images on them and they fit good.

I think it is my circle punch, not all 1" circles are really a true 1". I have been having a hard time uploading some images at 4x6 size to Walgreens.com, sometimes the edges get cut off, but not with your images.

I don't know why they would get cut off either! I print mine at home and at Walgreens all the time and have never had a problem. As for circle punches, yes they are a pain. Here is a link to my new favorite circle punch for bottle caps. I don't know if this site is the cheapest or not, I just took the first site that came up with it.

http://store.scrapbook.com/f-7436.html

The images fit absolutely perfect on the caps! As for the 8.5x11 image sheet sizes, I do think that most people are printing them at home and that's why us sellers choose that paper size. I do not push my images to the very edge of the paper because I don't want images getting cut off while printing. I know most sellers would be happy to try to help you out!
