Printing on 8x8 cards
I have an A4 printer but I wondered if I could print on to 8x8 card stock and yes you can! Although I do like to put inserts in my cards, there are times I like to print the verse direct onto my card stock and using A4 card is ok but I like 8x8. Well tonight using MCS I tried it out and was really pleased by the result! I just measured the card and in my printer options/preferences I changed the measurements and after a couple of attempts I finally got the verse where I wanted it. And I even put the scalloped edged 8x8 through with success! There may be some of you who already do this but it's a first for me and I couldn't be more thrilled. Hugs Sonia x
Don't presume tomorrow will be as good as today. it will probably be better.

Re: Printing on 8x8 cards
I think it will just depends on the printer, some can be temperamental! Good to hear you managed it

Re: Printing on 8x8 cards
If you have a scanner try scanning in one 8 by 8 bit of card and then you can place your verse exactly, but don't forget to delete the scan before printing!!
