I also print largely 11X14, but I usually have a pretty healthy border of at least an inch. I have found that I can just cut the a print down and lose very little to get it to 8.5 X 11 so that it will fit in my scanner. One inch on each side brings you to 9X12 anyway, so you are close. I usually have a print that I am not going to sell because it has more dust spots than I want to deal with in spotting, and they are so easy to clean up in Photoshop. (Is that cheating?)
