The Print Shop Professional 6.4 - Instant Download for Windows
I’m not totally pleased
I had print shop add print shop years ago and I love the program but this I haven't been able to use it it's been very hard to I just wanted to make some stamp size stickers and it just wouldn't allow me to do this so I don't know what's about your product but it doesn't seem to work very well nowadays so I can't give any good review
The product is awful. Ancient software kludged to work on Windows 10. it worked for me for 3 days, then refused to load (yes I am running as Administrator). I tried to reinstall without success. And now, after several failed attempts, it says I have exceeded the number of registrations allowed for the license key. Finally I did manage to contact their support and they sent me a link for a download that was over 100 MB larger than the original exe file, and they also reset my license key. That exe installed much differently from the original one and it at least works. Also, note hat Version 23 projects do not import exactly. There is quite a bit of tweaking necessary before they can be used. Not all the V23 fonts are available in 6 Pro and that is probably the main problem with imports.
The Print Shop software received a UI makeover and now sports a more up-to-date look with the 6.0 version. However in terms of features it's not significantly different the 4.0 version I'd previously used. I agree with users who've complained the software tends to run slow or unresponsive. On my Win10x64 PC with 16gb DDR it's not awful. but certainly a bit annoying in terms of workflow. In any case, The Print Shop remains an 'old school' approach to desktop publishing. IMO, it's "pro" is a fairly easy learning curve especially in creating newsletters or text-heavy publications. Commonly used features such as wrapping text around pictures, text and column formatting, adding artistic headlines, etc., are within reach for most users. But in comparison, Serif's "Affinity Publisher" software is thoroughly professional, fast, and capable of virtually anything albeit with a higher learning curve. And of course for simple, colorful projects there's always "Canva" with it's friendly UI that anyone can master. So, assuming it runs acceptably on your computer, The Print Shop might have it's place. But I do acknowledge some potential "cons"... 1) Doesn't run well on some computers, 2) There's no "try-before-buy" version, 3) Ready-made templates, projects, and graphics must be downloaded "on demand" from the publisher's server. Doing so is a simple, integrated process (just click on whatever you want to use) however you must have internet access to fully utilize the program's features. 3) Support is virtually non-existent. I've emailed them several times with legitimate questions/concerns and have never received a reply. That's a big negative in my opinion.
