"The Print Shop 4.0 vs all other graphics software for beginners "

What do you like best?

The quantity and quality of the Print Shop template selection are so good .

What do you dislike?

You can't create graph or tables within the program unless you use custom guides to align your content !

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are or your company is just startup and you are having less work related to graphics then I should recommend this software to you .No courses required to use it . Easy to use , easy to go !

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was chief editor of our university magazine .We were going to launch our 15th continuous issue .But when the all proofreading and all was going on the main person who had done all graphics in our magazine was absent . One of us has found some issues with designs so we call back to him asked to send a new file with this many changes . But he was not well to do work so he just sent his file to us and told to change whatever you want . But none of us were having knowledge of how to use publisher . At that time someone said she is knowing how to use the print shop if she can get a file in that format.So that designer guy sent a converted file and after that all gone smoothly as it was very easy to use services of print shop .At that time we don't have any softwares available of The Print Shop so we downloaded crack version . But after use of it now our whole magazine work is doing in this software only .Also now we are having 60-70 systems having licenced version of it !

What do you like best?

Number of templates and it's designs are so good that one don't need to create his/her own template. Also , they are now providing good customer support , they have solved our problems in 30 mins to 1 day period which is good .Hope to see them growing and keep upgrading their support and quality .

What do you dislike?

Their is nothing to be disliked .Still customer support needed to be improved .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Surely . Anyone who is knowing how to use paint can use it .means it is that much easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One employee had newly joined our company .She was not knowing how to use coreldraw .So one of her colleague suggested her to use print shop .After that she is now able to do some basics graphics operations and also learning for coreldraw .

"Broderbund's 'The Print Shop' is Back in Business! (*version 3.5 - 4.0 / standard & professional )"

What do you like best?

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.

What do you dislike?

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!

Recommendations to others considering the product

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. :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Once in a awhile you can definitely use a quick program that is quick on its toes to deliver a fast acting professional graphics presentation on the fly and where you can also quickly choose from a variety of stock images that The Print Shop has!

"Good graphic tool for small projects"

What do you like best?

The best thing I like about this software is its templates. This software offers the similar functionality of adobe photoshop, however, it is much easier to learn. It is easy to design smaller projects and proof of concepts. It offers a nice and easy interface to design labels, birthday cards, business cards and calendars. Another best feature of this software is all the templates available are of high quality.

What do you dislike?

As I said, this software is good for college assignments and small projects. It lacks layer editing, layer manipulation etc. which are present in the famous photo editing tools like Photoshop. Since it is less famous, there are no proper tutorials and documentation available to learn this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is best suited for small projects. Before considering this software for large projects I recommend to choose evaluation copy and try out few samples.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business cards, banners and photo editing

"Print Shop review"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use. There are lots you can do with it, but it very user friendly. A beginner with computers can make very nice print for cards, invitations, business fliers, etc. Its a great starter program for printing.

What do you dislike?

There were a lot of professional images but I wish they had more to choose from. It would have been nice if online they had more. I used it a few years ago so maybe they improved that now. Hopefully.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It was great for making simple adds. I used it for promo and advertising. I used it to make fliers with it and it works well.

"The Print Shop"

What do you like best?

The Print Shop comes with many things that are typically needed to produce anything from a greeting card to a business card already installed along with layouts.

What do you dislike?

The Print Shop is to centered on greeting/business cards and calanders, you would be hardpressed to make a complex ad or even a simple magazine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The Print Shop is a wonderful program for making cards, calanders and simplistic things, but with more complex items like magazines, books and things you would want something like Adobe InDesign or the likes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Print Shop makes it easy to throw together cards, invitations and even calanders.

"Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

I like how versatile The Print Shop is. I've been using it for years, it is so much easier than Microsoft Publisher.

What do you dislike?

The clip art could use some updating. It's very dated, it seems like many images are the same ones I used when I was a kid.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great program simpler than Microsoft Publisher not as professional as Adobe Printmaker.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use The Print Shop to make flyers, brochures, even worksheets. It really makes it easy to make professional looking publications quickly and easily.

There are too many choices for clip art.
