Can anyone recommend some lightweight photo printing software for WinXP? At work we need something a bit more powerful then the built in windows print wizard, but not much more. Multiple photos per page with metadata (date,time, file name) is really about all we need.

Need help identifying this Japanese woodblock print
of a kabuki actor. I think the artist is Kunichika, and the print is set somewhere on the Tôkaidô Road. At the top of the page is a large box of Japanese text
-- I'm hoping someone can read this, or otherwise identify any hints about the location, actor and character. (Two more translatable things inside) [more inside]

The bakery/café I work for is looking for a good company to print our menus.
We're looking to print "tall" menus. I'm sorry this is so vague, but I don't know the measurements or name of the type of menu. If I had to guess I'd say ~8" x ~4" — you know, the kind you often see in restaurants/cafés/delis, etc, often with a trifold. We're most likely doing just a double sided piece of paper, though.
We're located in Brooklyn, so we'd be looking for a company somewhere here or in Manhattan.

I am a neuroscience student and I'd like to get my mentor a print of one of Santiago Ramon y Cajal's famous drawings of a neuron as a going away gift. Unfortunately, I can't find anywhere that sells prints or photos of these drawings online, but I was able to find a book at my university's library that has larger (12" x 24") high quality images of these drawings.
My question: what is the best way to go from book to print? Are there particular scan qualities or types? Particular types of paper/material to print onto? Places (FedEx, architecture firms) to go to? Any advice would be really helpful.

I have an idea in mind that would be centered around a fake passport-like document taken to specific, fun places around the world. Not something fake enough to break laws, but fake enough to be something fun to carry around, not look cheap, and be durable to carry around and get stamped when requested. Where would I go to get something like this made? [more inside]

I have a template I use for my grocery lists that I've made in my spreadsheet program (Numbers). Is there somewhere online that I can send it (say, as a PDF) to be printed in the form of a pad of paper? Staples doesn't appear to do this. I am in Canada.

Want to print my very own chapbook, is there a freeware printing app for the occasion? Am using an ancient version of Word, so it needs to be standalone if possible - on and it needs also to be smallish - like paperback size. Any leads, help and suggestions, please list them. Thank you!

Anyone have experience in using a plotter to cut C1S (heavier coated card stock)? What are you using? I am looking to cut some packaging die lines and create actual nice folded samples. Doing them by had is getting really tedious. I would appreciate any info on other options to accomplish this and have the samples be nice enough to send to clients for approval.
As always- Thanks in advance hivemind.

We'll be moving into a rental office on a short-term (14-24 month) basis and we need to print new stationery. We only use about 125 envelopes a year (in two sizes: letter and card) and the minimum order quantity from local printers is 500 pieces. We've thought of printing envelopes with a logo and no return address and using a stamp or stickers to apply a return address, but the results have been tacky. With the move, we've ended up with hundreds of excess envelopes from previous addresses.
Is there a way we can solve this with something that looks good and doesn't cost a fortune?
All suggestions appreciated!

I'm designing my sister's album cover for her, and I would like some tips from people with experience in print design. I've used photoshop for quite a few years, and I'm OK at using it, but have never had to print anything professionally.
What I am doing for her is going to take some time and I don't want to finish and then find I have done some small thing wrong and have to start again!
Advice for doing this? What to do? What not to do?

I need to find a great full-service business that can print and do fulfillment on thousands of 2011 calendars (they'll probably be purchased worldwide). Reasonably priced with great customer service por favor. Also, I'm a designer and the photos are going to be fantastic so I want to make sure the quality's great. Yeah, I'm demanding, I know. :) Any recommendations?
