How to Make a 4" x 6" Document in PowerPoint

I don't know where it originated but a while back some genius blogger talked about saving color ink by making 4"x6" items and taking advantage of one of the deals on a photo printing website. Genius!

I'm not surprised that this was so popular on the poll!

Before I get into the tutorial I have to ask a favor of everyone... I need more ideas for these technology Tuesday posts!  I have a list of things I want to add to the poll... but this 4"x6" idea was one that someone submitting on the Technology Tuesday Request Form.  Please head over there and submit an idea that you'd like me to blog about and I'll try to add it to the poll soon!

Anyway... here's the tutorial!

It's a lot easier to explain how to save the photos as images since each printer is a little different, but I hope that helps!

For next week's poll I added another option that someone had requested on the  Technology Tuesday Request Form. Please be sure to add some ideas there for me so I can add your personal request to the poll!


  1. I have thought about doing this before, but never for small things- but bigger pages like 8x10. This would be really inexpensive for smaller game pieces. Thanks for the info

  2. I have a HP officejet pro 8610 and the problem iv'e found is there it no option on print properties to select the size of paper/card i'm wanting to print on so my printer still thinks its printing on a A4 sheet and will not print with 4x6 index cards it dispaly's an error stating the paper is not the correct size and refuses to print.

    Is there any was around this other than getting a different printer. As im using this to make revision cards i can't keep sending them off to a photo printing website and awaiting delivery!

    any suggestions?

    I am able to print from word on the 4x6 index cards but the presentation i have is in powerpoint.

  3. Thanks for the great post on your blog, it really gives me an insight on this topic.
