I had a problem with that and then put it on the backburner because it was driving me CRAZY!!! Try to add a margin of .25 and see if that works.

Let me see how much I can help you – I would choose a "text" paper and not a "cover" paper for printing on. Some cover papers because they are thicker have a hard time in printers period. 

Text paper is usually about 81lb.  I’m printing mine ona laser printer and I know that a benifit is that it tends to not smear….because it’s applied with heat, there’s no ink to dry leaving the ability to smudge it, like I so often do on my home printer. As for Word, I can’t help you with that I’m sorry. I’ve done all my stuff in photoshop – in fact yesterday I treid to set something up in Word and almost chucked the computer out the window I was so frustrated….I then went back to photoshop which I can work easy as pie….lol.

I know that places like Kinkos will set up your items for you so you can print as many on a sheet as possible I just don’t know if they will do it for you if you’re not printing with them….either way there is a small charge for it. I have to print 8.5×11 because thats all I can get through the printer and it turned out to be cheaper and easier as well, then the 12×12 with little scrap (I have uses for all my scrap!!!) 

I too am doing pocketfolds so if you need anything else, let me know – I’ll try my best to help you out!!
