    Default Hybrid Help

    So.

    I love banners, duh.
    Of course I'm going to partake in this month's Hybrid Challenge.

    BUT

    When creating Hybrid stuffs, I mean, like, how?

    Do you create then print, or do you actually PRINT elements and glue, tape whatever?

    I'm so ignorant of all this hybrid stuffs and any help would, well, help.

    For right now, I'm creating in PS(CS5) and my thought process was create, print, hang (because I'm making a full on banner, heck to the yes).

    Is there some key things I need to remember when creating, or printing? I mean WHERE do you print? (if you don't have a working printer at home) Is there certain paper, whatever you use?

    See, really ignorant.

    Help? Please?

    I design, print, and I'm done. Sometimes I add some gems or whatnot, but not often. I do all the designing in Photoshop

    I use my regular printer (an all-in-one), and basic cardstock paper.

    You can print everything as one or print a few elements separately then glue or tape them on. I like to add something with dimension, like real buttons or string. I was a paper scrapper, so I'm always trying to use up my room full of stuff.

    I print on cardstock at home, but you can also get stuff printed at an office store, like Staples/Office Depot.

    You should also be able to get it printed at any basic box store that offers same-day printing, like Walmart, Costco, etc ;)
    I wouldn't know because I've only printed at home and via Persnickety Prints

    I've done both design all in Adobe and print without glue and design in Adobe, separate the layers, print, cut out, and glue. ;)

    I made a birthday banner before, but I want to say that I didn't do any glueing. I would look at the pictures, but they are 1900 or so miles away! ;)

    Sorry for highjacking your thread mamaape but I just thought of a question. Is there a way to use this on a cricut if you don't have sure cuts alot? Cricut takes cut files.

    I don't think so, and from my understanding, Cricut sent updates or whatever that blocked that from working

    I'm pretty new to hybrid projects - have done mostly cards and a few banners.
    I design things to print in PSP X4 and then save the files as jpegs and open them with my Silhouette software and work them in to my project - I guess that really doesn't answer your question though April, except for the fact that I print and cut ... I can't answer about the Cricut machine and cutting files ...

    WOOOO, Thanks April!!! I didn't want to ask all these important questions for myself... SO glad you asked, because I wouldn't have. (And my daughters party is on Saturday, and I want to make a banner!)
