I have had mine printed at www.scrapbooksplease.com. They are having a sale right now for .99 cents a page and they go to $3.49 a page, depending on what quality of paper you pick. Recently after starting off with 12x12 prints I decided to go with 8x8 prints instead and I can print those right off of my printer. The 12x12 books are just so big and I don't have a place to leave them out, so with the 8x8 books they can be left out on coffee tables or fit on shelves without sticking out, plus grandmas like that size too, so I go ahead and design on a 12x12 page but then have the option to print off 8x8 or 6x6 pages too.

I recommend Creative Memories - i love them so much that I joined the company! Amazing selection....they have free and then packages that you can buy too. The free software is great the more advanced software that you busy is out of this world...it is virtual scrap booking and can do everything you can with paper scrap booking and more. My favorite effect right now is the 3D effect that actually makes it look like your paper is popping out of the page - very cool.
check it out www.mycmsite.com/sandranorthmore you need to go tot shop products - even for the free stuff - digital - and then free templates - free software! Happy Scrapping!
Creative Memories started the scrap booking industry over 22 years ago so they know their stuff when it comes to woriking with precious photos!!

Creative Memories has around 40 different themed packages all free...and the basic software is free to create an album...any pages that you create with all this free stuff you can save as a 12x12 and yes get printed at costco or where ever. Creative Memories also have calendars that you create and when the month is over the 12x12 portion perforates off and you can add this to an album. You can start your calnedar any month of the year - which is great and it is an awesome gift for grandparents.

If you create it yourself you can have Inkley's or Ritz Camera stores print it. They will print it however it will be printed on photopaper. They print stuff at the size you bring in. I have made my own stuff in Adobe Photoshop and InDesign and I am still trying to find something that I can print exactly the way I want for a good price. Some of the companies who have photo books have some decent layouts. Good luck!

I use Shutterfly to store all my pictures online and you can make alblums any size you want. They have templates , papers .They print it in a book and you can have as many pages as you want. You have to sign up to be a member but it's free and you can also make your own website for free and when you upload your pictures to your alblums you can email them to your family and for being a member they will give you free prints for sharing , you have to pay the shipping .I just got 75 free pictures plus I ordered like 15 more and it cost me $ 7. 52 for all of them to ship and they mail them right to your house within a couple of days. I use it all the time .If you'd like to see a sample of my website you can go to http;//ziolkowskifamily.com . I have 3 websites and I love it . You can do a lot on your website. I set it up for my family to stay in touch . If you want more info send me a message and I'll get back to you. Ive also used SmileyBox. I like it but you cant save all your layouts. They have a lot of prmade papers and they're nice and it's easy to use.

smilebox.com is what I use. It's free! (There is a monthly fee that gives you a few more options) but if you don't have to sign up for that. I've used it for about a year now and am content with the free options. I'm going to check out these other ideas too though. Good luck.

Hi Alexi, My name is Diane St.Martin. I am a Heritage Makers, Personal Publishing Consultant. I can set you up with a free basic membership. The company will then print your 12x12 pages (we have a lot of other great products also) for a fee. Send me an email and I will tell you all about it. firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my website at www.fotocreations4you.com If you go directly to the HM website you will pay much higher fees for printing. I have consultant pricing and sales I can offer you.

ScrapGirls.com and DigitalScrapbookingExperts.com have a daily free download and FreeDigitalScrapbooking.com has free kits you can download. StuffToScrap.com also has free kits to download. All the sites also sell stuff and/or have memberships too. I found these to be pretty reliable sites. All their downloads are 300dpi, so they're printable quality.

Heritage Makers offers a free Basic membership to their online Studio. This gives you the ability to upload up to 1GB of photos and create in the Studio as many projects as you like, from books to scrapbook pages to calendars, etc. They have a large quantity of artwork available, templates if you don't want to start from scratch, and more. When ready, you request to publish the 12x12 pages (or whatever projects) and they ship it directly to you. The pages are just a couple dollars each and are fantastic quality. I recommend creating more than one to have published at the same time to save on shipping costs. This is the best online site that I have found and as a result, I did join their team. Check them out for yourself, no risk @ www.heritagemakers.com. If you decide to create a free Basic account, please indicate that I referred you (Liz Thompson, White Lake, MI). Thanks and good luck. ~Liz
