Sorry Another Question

If I were to provide patterned or designer papers to print for cards, how would you prefer them?

8" x8"
4.25" x 5.5" - standard US quarter fold cardfront
Full page 8.5" x 11" ( your printer may crop this to make margins/ or will be slightly cropped if you are using European sized letter paper.
Half Page 5.5" x 8.5"
or 5 x 7?

Any other related opinions would be helpful as well.

Thank you for you input :) To answer please do it via my actual blog in the comments section.

background papers, preference would be 8.5 x 11 inches.. easily printed or cropped smaller.. and your work is divine!!

I'm with Penny! I like to have a larger size of image - easy to reduce it, or print out a whole page and crop into pieces for more projects (depending on the design of course).

Oh - and big :) right back at ya! Thanks! I'm so pleased with my stamps - although I have only got round to mounting that one so far . .

I think l/2 sheet size or full sheet

I agree with Penny and Joanne. The 8 1/2 x 11 is easy to work with and can be cut down for smaller albums or card fronts.

I like 8.5 x 11 as I can then cut them as I like.

Jo said...

I'm all for big full page too...I like to make big cards sometimes!Thanks for sharing your marvellous work!

I agree with everyone on the full page but the 8.5 x 5.5 was my choice when I started --- could use it for 5.5 x 4.25 card or would be big enough to use for the front of a 5x7. Love your stuff and am looking forward to what ever you do.

I love the idea of the larger 8.5 x 11 inches, for the same reasons Penny has mentioned.
