Have you ever bought a darling photo frame, only to realize that it held a photo size that does not exist in the real world? Well, I did, with a cute little green, red, and gold frame from Hobby Lobby. The photo size was a very strange 2.5×3.5 inches. And it’s not the only frame like, in fact, stores are littered with adorable frames like this one that utilize oddball photo sizes.
I was ready to march my little Christmas frame back to Hobby Lobby in a huff! In my defense, there was no label on the frame indicating an abnormal print size. Yet, I really, really liked that little frame.The last few printing places on earth, Costco and Walgreens, did not support oddball sizes. I considered printing it myself but I knew I couldn’t trust my ghetto Epson printer to do the job.
And then I stumbled on OddPrints, a service that does exactly that: printed in whatever odd dimensions you wanted. Within a week, I had a high-quality print of a photo I had digitally cropped to the magic 2.5×3.5 inch size. OddPrints was very responsive and I highly recommend them for all your odd printing needs.
One caveat: they do not trim the print. You will have to painstakingly trim or cut the print yourself. I used regular ole’ scissors for mine, but if you have a collage of many odd-sized photos, I highly recommend a craft paper trimmer like Fiskars SureCut Deluxe. If you don’t trust your trimming skills, you can always order some duplicate prints at OddPrints exceptionally cheap prices.
