Hey all, the subject of my recent HM, would like a 12x12 of that image. However my usual go-to site - henry's.ca - doesn't offer that size, nor does Vistaprint. Any reputable online print services that do produce prints in off-sizes like that?

Costco will print a 12x12 for USD$3.99 ...

However, I suggest doing what I do: make a copy of your 12x12 and resize it to 6x6. Enlarge the canvas of your original to 12x18 and slap a couple of copies of the small one into the blank space -- most places print a 12x18 (and for the same price at Costco!) and just trim the print down.

Hmm that sounds pretty labour intensive. A trip to Costco may be the best way to go.

ETA spoke too soon, you have to have a Costco membership...which I don't. Back to square one. Already had to eliminate my go-to sites cause they either don't print that size, or you have to pay exorbitant shipping fees - Adorama is quite happy to sell me a 12x2 for $3.89, but then $12 for *international shipping*...and I wouldn't get it til the middle of November...N.F.W.

ETA part deux: found posterjack. Going with that. Thanks for your help, Paul!

in photoshop, just extend the canvas to 12x18 and then cut it down. or, like GeneralE suggested, add images to the extended space and then trim them out. little bit of work, maybe, the first time, but once you get used to it, no big deal.
