How to Print

Postby jovialjosh » Oct Wed 12, 2022 2:59 am

I am considering getting a subscription but I'm unsure on how to go about printing the covers. Is there a type of paper that works best? What are your guys' process for printing a cover from this website? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Josh

I use Epson Presentation Paper MATTE 8.5"x14" paper. My covers looked great with it. I also use an Epson inkjet printer to print them. I print my covers from Photoshop. I'm a MAC user and printing can be done from the application called Preview. It comes with the MAC. Just make sure that you turn off the "scale to fit" option before printing. It works great.

I use a Canon G3260 Pixma printer, matte photo paper from Red River paper, print all cover images with Photoshop.  I use both a PC and Mac to print covers.
