I have purchased two programs similar to Photoshop, however you can
only put 6 pictures per page with text.
Why is it you can only put 6 pictures per page? Is it part of the
Because I have over 200 peices in my line I need to be able to put
a MINIMUM of 12 pics. per page.....ideally 16 to 24.
If you used Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign (all Adobe), you
could put as many per page as you like. There would be a learning
curve with any of these programs, but once you learn them they are so
easy to use. You could check out any community college or adult
school in your area for classes. I'm about to do that for the
I used to do all my line sheets in Photoshop or Illustrator, but
because my line sheets are about 30 pages long it was such a pain to
print. I had to open each page individually to print, and then
collate. What a pain! So, I imported all into InDesign, which is a
layout program. This way, I only have to open one file and print
once. However, InDesign is a little complicated, which is why I need
I contacted a company that does them professionally and they told
me I would have to order a minimum of 1000 copies for $2000...
I print my line sheets from my home printer. I looked into having
them professionally done, but like you, I discovered that it was
more than I wanted to spend and more than I needed. By printing them
myself, I have more freedom to change styles, prices, etc...
whenever I wanted. It is a little costly, but I only pay for them as
I need them, instead of a $2000 initial outlay. I also try to portray
my jewelry as actual size. I think it's much more helpful for the
customers, they don't have to try and figure out how big or small
I am also going to put these on the web as pdf files that they can
download, view and print on their own. This will hopefully save me
some printing $$ in the long run. I actually have one repeat
customer who has requested numerous copies from me and my rep. I
think we've sent her 5 copies over the past year, she keeps on losing
them! Hopefully, by having them on line it'll help me to not send
multiple copies, we'll see!
I hope this helps, let me know if you have other questions...
