Scrapbook paper with patterns?

There are so many beautiful patterns on this site that would make incredible scrapbook paper. I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a site that could make 12 x 12 sheets of scrapbook paper.

Hi celineebeenie, when you say 'make' do you mean print 12x12 sheets or design 12x12 sheets?

If you create an overall 12x12 sheet of a pattern at 300dpi, you should be able to print it out to 12x12 on a printer that can handle that size paper. 300dpi for print; 200dpi for screen only.

Just Perfect Color

If you do not want to invest in a larger format printer, any vendor with large output graphics capability should be able to print on a variety of opaque and translucent paper and other materials for you (even someplace generic like Kinko's).

Most charge by the square inch or the length of the paper (or whatever material) you use off a roll of paper stock at whatever width they have. You will probably find you can print wider than 12" and trim several sheets out of your run---either with an X-Acto knife, trimmer or with their power cutters if you need a stack of paper.

300dpi is pretty standard but be sure and find out what file formats their systems can read and will work best and reproduce the sharpest. It shouldn't be an issue but their may be a maximum file size too. Have fun. It is not especially expensive compared to what you are probably accustomed to paying for scrapbook paper anyhow? Shop around. Large output printing is very competitive these days.

try printing at kinkos. they even have computers there that probly print straight to the printers. or you can switch over to online digital scrapbooking which can also be printed too. go to walmart or barnes and nobles and browse through scrapbook magazines and books. they are great resources with the many advertisements of businesses and websites offering an arrange of products and services.

I am all for being patient while much needed changes are made to the site, but the complete absence of communication is very disturbing.
I feel it is a lack of respect towards the community to just leave us worrying and guessing every. bloody. time.

We have sat out weeks of CL not working because of DoS-Attacks, we've experienced several (for us: surprise) shut-downs as updates were implemented, we have grappled with the buggy fallout of many of these updates - and never a comment, a warning, a heads-up, an anything from anybody in charge.

Are we not worth being informed?

And now I sit and wait to see if this comment will actually be posted. I have not been able to comment anywhere, not even my own profile, for days.

Came back after being gone for 2 years to this disappointment, Also, once again, experienced issues with Seamless Light errors. Captchas are a pain in the butt (especially when they make you click though 3 pages of pics); however, I understand the need for them.

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

TBH, I don't think I ever used Photocopa for my palettes. It never quite did what I wanted, and 90% of my palettes aren't based off photos.

I am very pleased to see that the spam problem is being addressed and agree with Edith re being patient while these changes are taking place and also concur that some form of communication by those behind the scenes would be nice and greatly appreciated.

I have to admit that the lack of badges has actually been pretty nice. At times, I'm not a fan of the flood of badges on the sidebar. It's nice to not have some creations shoved in my face over and over again.
And I second Edith. I'd love to hear some news. :)
