No, no, no, Diane Victoria has it RIGHT about #36 (maybe I'm the 37th
person to mention this. but I'm going through the weekend's mail FIFO)
It's 10 x 10 inches, so 9.89 x9.89 will be PERFECT (better too small than
too large) Least that's what I wrote on the web site and in the intro
maybe it's changed???

Hey, Victoria 25x25 is close enough to print on the good paper and don't
worry about an eighth of an inch -- that's why we call it "about" -- give or
take a half-inch is fine -- but an INCH (as some people seem to always do is
TOO MUCH, especially if it's an inch too big -- then the coordinator has to
fold or cut the prints down to size or send them back (but I don't think
we've EVER sent any back)!
