Unless you have a printer with more than an 11-inch platen, yes.  You can buy a printer that will print 12-inch and larger (I have several friends who are photographers or who are really dedicated scrap-bookers, and they all have printers that do up to 15 inches.  If you’re going to print that size a lot, it’s a reasonable investment.

Buy the 12×12 and cut them to 6×6 and then run the 6x6s through the printer.

I had the same issue as you did.

I brought my 12×12 to Office Maw, they cut all the sheets on a 12×6 so I could fit it in my printer; it cost me less than 2$ to have them do that. You can also go to Staples, Office Depot, etc.

No I do advise getting some legal paper and hand cutting it to a 6×12. It takes a few trying and adjusting steps to get what you want printed exactly where you want it.

Do keep in mind that your printer almost always has a margin. I’m assuming since it’s your programs that you won"t have anything too close to the edge. I printed my invitations through photoshop and asked for no margin, there still was a 5mm one. Just so you know.

I’m so glad I printed things in greyscakle and on my cut legal paper first for that. I avoided using the nice paper for nothing that way.
