Need professional printing from Pages.

I can't find a professional printer in the Chattanooga area who can print a flyer done on a Mac, in Pages. What are my options? I really have no way to do this flyer, other than on a Mac, and I made this flyer for someone who lives in Chattanooga TN, and has been unable to find a printer who has a Mac. Is there a way to convert this POS to PDF or something equally stupid and pedestrian?

Will they fit a whole 5x7 photo on 4x6 paper?

You have digital pictures that are cropped to various rectangular dimensions, but you want to print each of them on 4"x6" paper without losing any of the image. Of course any that are not a 4x6-ratio image - that's most of them - will need to have some white letterboxing. Can any of the standard consumer on-line photo printing services do this automatically, as a batch request? Just print whatever I upload, but fit each one entirely on 4"x6" paper? Shutterfly and Snapfish customer service (for example) said I'd have to go in and adjust the cropping for each picture individually.

Best Choice For Occasional Offsite Photo Printing?

I'm looking for a way to make very occasional photo prints, color and b&w, in the 8x10 and 11x14 range. I've looked at buying a printer and concluded that's not cost effective for my needs. Ideally, I'd like to send a Photoshop file to someone and then drive by to pick up the prints or have them ship the prints to me. Are any of the online services any good? If so, who is the best? What about places like Costco and Kinkos? I've found a few old threads here on this subject, so I suspect things have changed. I'm looking for better than drugstore/Walmart/Target quality.

What's the state of POD printing in the UK?

What's the options for POD printing in the UK? I want to setup a small poetry press and successfully used CreateSpace in the US for a previous book, but they don't sell in the UK. I know of things like Lulu, but are there companies that will do short-order runs (i.e. 50-100 books) if I give them an appropriately-formatted PDF?

Size matters

How can I print 34 lines of text so that it takes up exactly 6.125 inches? Or equivalently, so that each line is .18 inches. I tried different fonts in various word processors but always ended up a little to large or too small. There's probably an obvious way to do this using some easily available software (preferably free) but I can't seem to figure out what it is.

I need a book printer & binder - ideally the same company - in Northern California who is familiar with photography books. The publication may involve 4-color blacks, or black/silver traditionally litho-printed photographs and text on good paper, Mohawk superfine or something like that; hard and soft bindings may be necessary. Any ideas?

Help me batch print text files on the Mac

OS X: I want to batch print all the files in a source-code library. They are actionscript files, which means they are text files that all end in a .as extension. The files are in a complex directory structure (one root folder but files in multiple subfolders), and there are non .as files that I don't want printed. When the files print, I need some kind of separator ( spaces, asterisks, new page...) between each file. [more inside]
