First off, I'd like to preface this with a SORRY if this topic has been discussed before. I tried to do a "search forums" but it doesn't seem to be working for me (on work computer..)

I have yet to start my Project Life, and I'm wanting to use the baseball card holder method.

I am trying to print pictures off of Persnickety Prints, but I'm having some issues..

I have Instagram pics that I'd like to print. There's an option for 2x2 Instagram printing, but it says it has a 1/2 border?! What option do you do for Instagram printing?

Also, what size do you print your pictures? I've been really good at taking pictures more vertical to fit the pockets, but some pictures I've taken are horizontal. How do you print those pictures to fit and look good into the pockets?

I really tried to figure this all out myself, but I was going bonkers on the Persnickety Prints site and didn't want to pay for an order and be unhappy with the pictures I received because I ordered them wrong.

If you have other photo printing sites, please recommend them too!

Thanks for all the help peas.. I hope to start my PL soon! I'm obviously behind already!

Well, there's been a little Persnickety controversy up in this joint the last couple of days so that may be hindering your responses


The baseball card type holders I have are 2.5x3.5, they're from WRMK. So the 1/2 inch border on those instagrams would be fine with my page protectors, they'd fit ok.

As for the horizontal pics I think what I would do is print them as 4x6 and crop them so they're 2 pockets wide, then cut them in half to slide into the actual pockets.

Another possibility is one of the Canon home printers that prints business card sized prints, then you wouldn't have to fuss with funny sizes, just send them all to the home printer.
