RE: TTM Help
Hey, nice to see other folks getting into this part of the hobby. Personally I use Ulead PhotoImpact 12 or X3 to do mine. Other helpful programs are Gimp or Paint.Net (lots of add-ins available). I print on glossy photo paper stock and use a small cutting board to get 2.5" x 3.5" size. In the program itself I use 300 dpi and size it 3" x 4" and add in .25" margins.

Good luck!

ms image composer 1.5

it's a dead program, but you can get it on piratebay for free

super easy to use, has a lot of the same capabilities as photoshop

dance like no one is looking, but also, dance like everyone should be looking at you.
truthfully, one leads to the other

RE: TTM Help
Hi i will bump my TTM thread for you to help.
But i tend to use.
100 lb cardstock and a sticker back to make it a bit thicker printed on a laser printer. I create my cards in CS6 using photoshop.
I like the card seems most people like my original design kinda based off press pass its simple and looks good.

RE: TTM Help
Thanks for the help gents... I'll be looking into all of these programs.. As far as the cardstock, that would be more of a matte finish, correct?
