Default bottlecap problem

what do you do about images that are too big for the punch, I am so frustrated, I bought images , had them printed at snapfish, I have the punch that Cristi suggested, but so many of the images have parts of the picture cut off, or if it has a word part of the lettering is cut off, I am centering it ok, they were just "made" too big
any one else run into this problem

Linda,
Have you got the setting right in your printer to print the correct paper size? I have customers call me sometimes saying the images are too big. So I walk them through changing the print size and it works great.

I am not printing them myself, I would think if people are selling images for bottlecaps they would have them sized correctly......

Have you contacted her to tell her the problem your having maybe she can fix them for you??

I know some poeple who've bought from me tried to print as a 5x7 when they are 4x6 and that will of course make them bigger

CVS and other printers (even my professional printer) enlarge the image slightly before printing. If you can resize the image to make it slightly smaller that should work! I've been making bottlecap images and make them just under 1" before sending them off and they come out just a smidge over, which is good for me since it leaves a little room for error when punching.

You should contact whomever you bought them from. Many times they can and will fix them for no extra fee.

I have had a problem with them being too small. I agree it is so annoying too buy them and they are not the correct size.

I had that problem and it was my fault. My setup was not at 100%. Once I did that it came out just right. Hope this helps.
