I'm using the greeting card templates from Red River Paper and trying to print them using Elements 6 on a Canon Pro9000MkII. I wonder if anyone here has done it because I'm having 2 problems:
1) I can't get vertical cards (ones that open like a book) to print so that they're positioned properly on the paper. Red River has demo videos on how to do this, and it should be so simple (They're even using a Pro9000 and PSE in the video!), but it's just not working. Sometimes the layout is sideways on the paper, sometimes it's half on the paper and half off.
2) I can print cards that are oriented horizontally. But using their template and the grid in PSE, I position the photo exactly on the template, but in the print it's off-center more than 1/16 inch in both directions.

If anyone has any experience in this regard, I'd really appreciate hearing about it.
Thanks
John

Update Re: printing greeting cards on Pro9000MkII

I found out that when using a custom paper size in the printer driver it insists on using "portrait" orientation.
Does anyone have experience using custom paper sizes in the pro9000?
Thanks

Well, I found my answers.:) I'll post them here in case anyone else needs them.

1)The problem wasn't the printer driver, it was PSE6 that wouldn't allow landscape orientation for custom paper sizes. And to be fair I have to say that I have elements+ installed and that could be the problem; I'm not willing to uninstall it to find out so I don't know.

2)The non-centering problem is actually because of RRP's template; it shows the printable area to be within 1/8" of the card when, in fact, the printer leaves a margin of about 13/64 when you set it for "normal-size" printing. That was causing parts of my photo to disappear and it never occurred to me that the margins weren't the right size.
