Most creative printing software enthusiasts that were around back in the mid 80's still remember the pixelated banners printed out on perforated computer paper! Broderbund's ever popular Print Shop still proves to hold the market in a very affordable, production powerhouse multi media printing/graphics software. It seems to also get stuffed even more with quality layouts, multi purpose, banners, improved quick photo editing apps every year!
As most users of Print Shop know, there is always an extensive and rewarding array of diverse newsletters, resumes, cards, presentational layouts, etc. that one can create with an added shared interface that is much appreciated by the Broderbund developers.
I'm currently using this affordable software in my own freelance work (version 3.5) along with the 'professional' and very pricey photo applications such as Adobe's Photoshop & Corel to name a few. My clients cannot tell the difference! *Shhh* so don't say anything either, as it's also a graphics industry secret.
Some have complained about the installation time of this otherwise great software that has still stood the test of graphic printing time, and also when using it sometimes it tends to also slow down depending on which applications are currently being used. I have noticed this too, when say, trying to work in the shared interface which can tend to become a little heavy, but not much. It never slow down to a noticeable crawl which is cool!
Other than that possible issue for people that are pretty picky, DON"T BE. The benefits more than outweigh the tiny glitches of this still amazing printing product after all these years!
I would also recommend a small program such as 'SpringPublisher' which is free unless you want to spend a little more to get the upgrade (though there is not much else in the latter to probably warrant that) Also, there is a 'Print Shop Deluxe' one can upgrade to also for about 10 more dollars which is still a bargain considering even more added graphics presentation features galore too! Thank you. :)
