    Well, do you have Quark Xpress or Adobe Pagemaker or Indesign? They are layout programs. You can use them to set up your page. Just make a new document the same size as the paper you are printing them on and then tile them away. Make sure you get the back pictures right. Remember, they are mirrored. So if your front was .5 in from the left edge, your back will be .5 in from the right edge. Second idea. Did you just use Adobe Photoshop? If you did, just make a new canvas in the correct diminsions and then move (with the move tool) your picture on to the new canvas. Only problem is you'll have a hell of a time getting them to print out where you want them. If you need more help, email me (see below) or AIM: Vestaxboy. Peace,
