My HP All-in-One Printer Won’t Print Stationery

Author: Wes | Filed under: FREE Stationery, Site Information, Training Tuesday Dec 21,2010

I just got off the phone with Chris who was telling me that he was having trouble printing one of our stationeries.

Chris was working on his holiday and new years letter for the family and when he went to print it, the bottom 1/2 inch was cut off and didn’t print.

We talked about a few possible solutions after verifying that the file was not corrupted and he decided that he would play with the printer settings and see if it was a margin problem or something with the borderless print settings.

Chris called me back after about an hour and let me know that he had talked with the printer’s customer service rep and had let them take control of his computer and play with the settings in both the printer and in MS Word.

Long story short, the HP Printer was not seeing the right page size.  The work around was to choose a custom paper size and to set the paper to 8.5×13 instead of the standard 8.5×11.

Once that was done, the Christmas 54 Stationery printed perfectly on the 8.5 x 11 paper.

So, if you are having any problems printing our stationery on your color inkjet printer, try changing the paper size if things are getting cut off of one side of the page.

Happy Holidays to you and to your family,

Wes

FREE Photo Calendars as Holiday Gifts

Hi Free Stationery Friend,

Today, I’ve been working on my own families 2011 photo calendars.  I give them to both my side and my hubbies side of the family each year for Christmas. Of course, they work great for Hanakkah and Kwanza too.

I actually have to!

See, two years ago, I did it for my brother and sisters & my husbands sister and parents.  Everyone showed everyone else and the rest of the family and before I knew it, I had been tasked with creating 4 more for my aunt, my parents, my cousin and hubbies aunt.

Now, everyone in the family starts sending me their summer and fall photos the end of November so that they can have their new personalized photo calendars for Christmas.  It’s so popular in fact, I’ve got my sister-in-law helping me out this year so we can get them all done.

It really doesn’t take too long for each calendar, as I put all of one side of the families birthdays and anniversaries on one set of calendar templates, then make another copy with the other side of the families dates.

Then I create about half the picture calendar with photos from family events and gatherings that work for the whole family.  The other half of the photo calendar pages get custom images of the family the calendar is for on them.

Since the calendar templates have all the graphics and formatting done for me (I made them that way), it takes me less than 5 minutes per page to paste the family holiday photos behind the transparent openings and to add my personal journaling text to each page.  The only time consuming part is gathering all the family scrapbook photos and placing them into separate directories for each person.

So easy to do and yet so personal a holiday gift.  You can print them yourselves as I’ve created the calendar templates to fit on standard 8.5×11 photo paper, card stock or other paper.  You can even put them on your thumb drive (usb drive) or on a photo cd and have them printed at any photo lab. 

It really is the perfect gift for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or any other holiday or birthday event.  I’ve even made them for baby shower gifts using mom’s pregnancy photos and first photos of the baby after they are born.

All the common holiday dates are there for you and you can insert text to add any other anniversary, birthday or event on the dates you want. There’s plenty of extra room.

Here’s my finished page for December 2011… what do you think?
