Oooooooooooh, Granny, 8x8 is the ONLY size I print out for myself and what I have been doing all along since starting with SBM. I buy the cool little plain 8x8 albums when they are on sale at Walmart for $1 or $2 dollars, some extra filler pages (also on sale), and the photo paper (when it's on sale, too, of course), and away I go! I decorate the outside of the albums myself -- I've used stuff from my sewing/quilting, my "real" scrapbooking, etc., etc. And the pages I print out I have even added a "real" embellishment here and there. I have never gone for the bigger sizes and don't plan on it as I don't have that much shelf or storage room. I've made a few 4x6 bragbook albums for my family, but for myself I prefer the 8x8 size! And I print at 200dpi, that's the "Normal" setting on my printer (looked EXACTLY the same as 300dpi), and it looks exactly like it was professionally done.
So sorry we didn't let you in on this earlier. ROTFL!! Live an' learn, huh!

Be good to your favorite designer (I used to be one!) by LETTING THEM KNOW how much you appreciate their work!
