Good proxy maker site

I suppose it's a bit of a taboo subject, and I know it's been asked before but I'd like to ask again.
Are there any good sites that can align cards at appropriate size for printing off?
A lot of the old threads on other sites all have their websites shut down. I did find one, MTG Press which works pretty good (103% makes it just a few mm's shy of full size), but it fails to communicate to the printer that they are page breaks, so many cards are pushed off of the ends of pages and end up overlaid on top of one another as progression continues.
I know I can always just click-copy into Word / Paint / Photoshop but I'm getting tired of having to constantly align one card after another and change their individual sizes one by one. Takes hours to do.
Is there a site where I can just upload a decklist and click print? I really don't want to spend $300 - $1,000 on a deck just to find out the balance doesn't work for the meta. I can always playtest in my group and if it survives well enough I can send it on it's way to FNM or whatever. I've got no problem setting aside money to play the game, I just want to be sure I buy the cards right the first time. Especially if I am getting into EDH.
I use deckstats.net whenever I want to print out proxies. If you follow this link (https://deckstats.net/deckbuilder/en) you can make a deck, then hit the 'Analyze Deck Now!' button. Then there's a 'Deck Tools' button that has an option for printing proxies.
Some of the proxies vary in size a small amount, but they're always able to fit into a regular sleeve. And I've never had any problems with the alignment on the page.

magiccards (https://magiccards.info) has a pretty decent proxy maker! tho i usually just make my own proxies by resizing them in libreoffice since i like to have pretty alt art for all my cards

FYI, Wizards is totally fine with proxies for pick-up games, even in stores.
Here's an excerpt from their official statement:
Cards used in DCI-sanctioned events must be authentic Magic cards ... Wizards of the Coast has no desire to police playtest cards made for personal, non-commercial use, even if that usage takes place in a store.
