it's not the paper you use, is the printer, ink jet printers bleed laser printers don't so if you have ink jet you have to seal your image first, micro glaze works great!

Can I ask why you use 4x6 and not a 8 x10 sheet, do you print them out on card stock and or photo paper?

Thank you
Marcie

How do you print images like tv characters, team logos, etc.? I'm looking for somewhere to print mine as well, but I'm not sure how those types of images are handled, even with online printing.

If you have photo paper it will give you a glossy print out. My first trial run was regular computer paper. When it printed, I thought "oh dear!" but I used Triple Thick and it's glossy and clear as can be. I see the same cute bottle cap bows off etsy and I was determined to do it for myself. I used mac's "iwork" and mask the image into a circle and then I can move my photo within the masked shape and never have to recrop my images. Also, you can go to the disney website and select your movie, go to characters, and save the wallpaper images. That's what I did for all my cute toy story image files.

I'm seeing lots of cool ones on Etsy like the Barbie profile and Cat in the Hat and SSC, Princesses, etc.

Thanks for any help

I use this great photo sticker paper that I got off of amazon.com because it goes on even and looks a lot better. You can download photoscape and combine and image or even two 4 x 6 images sheets so you aren't wasting paper. When you punch out an image though, you have to punch a plain piece of paper after or the glue get all gummed up in the hole punch.

Here's a link to the paper I got: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VKV2H4

Then, I just print them at home with my printer. They work really well, you just have to let them dry for a few minutes on the darker images or you will get smudges.

Also, a lot of times you can find sites that have stock images that can be used for free. I know I saw a post somewhere on the forum about it. Just search for bottlecap images and it should come up.

If you're looking to make the images yourself, you make your designs inside a 1 inch circle in a photo editing program. Otherwise you can buy the pre-made image sheets. If you make the images yourself, make sure to keep it at 300dpi for a good print out.

Some ladies will make their sheets 4x6 and other will do 8x10, it really depends on how many images you want to fit on a sheet and how you're printing them. I personally take mine to office max and have them printed on 8.5x11 sheets of glossy paper and it works out great. And then i use the epoxy stickers, which won't cause your images to run.

Hope this helped.

You will need a photo editing program of some sort to make the round images. I use photoshop elements personally, but I have heard of people using gimp too.
I even think the new word (latest version) will do shapes for you and you might be able to use it, but I haven't tried it.

Use a xyro sticker maker to stick the circles to the bottlecaps. Have them printed at walmart, walgreens or target and they shouldn't bleed. Most of those machines use laser printing so there is no ink to bleed. I found Walmarts machines don't give as clear an image as Target, but that may just be at my stores locally.
