I have a Mitsubishi cp-k60dw-s dye sub printer and I can not get my photos to print properly. They are only printing on one side but cutting like I want. Paper is 6x8

    ok. I played around with the settings and I'm now printing on more paper but not cutting.

    That printer does not have a trim option for 3 X 8

    Any suggestions on getting the most out of my paper.

    I am not familiar with that printer. I would recommend posting your
    question at the Sparkbooth Users Group where there are other people who are
    using that printer.

    Well, your printer has a standard 6 inch roll. The normal way most American PB companies work is printing a split 4X6 for the traditional two '2x6' strips.

    Try this...
    attached is a ZIP file of a layout I created
    using the 6X8 paper format
    Unzip and Import the sbl file in your layout creator
    you will need to manually cut the double strip
    your printer doesn't have that feature.

    see sample attached
