What's New find out more.
The biggest upgrade for The Print Shop for Mac in a decade, our third edition has everything you and your students been waiting for — and then some. You will find dozens of new features including a new project type (Crafts), and our new QR Code Maker. We also have added three new kinds of text (circle, spiral and photo fonts), a powerful "smart snapping" layout tool, and a clever new cropping option that lets you cut out the inside of a donut! And of course there are lots of new templates, more than a hundred new fonts and the most extensive art collection we've ever offered.
An Academically Appropriate Art Collection
Less is more as they say in this new Academic Edition. We have gone carefully through the greatly expanded art collection in version 3 and removed any image that would not be considered appropriate for a third grade classroom - since that's about our youngest school user. So while you will find breathtaking new photos of life from the rain forests of Brazil to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, you won't find wine glasses, cigars, or romantic encounters of the adult kind in The Print Shop 3 Academic Edition.
Spin a word spiral with our new Circle Text tool ... it's so much fun, you might never type in a straight line again.
Get in touch with your crafty side with our newest project type, with colorful templates from bookmarks and garlands, to gift bags and party hats.
Poster, Wall, and Planner Calendars
Make 12-month flip calendars with faces of the birthday boy or girl taken directly from iPhoto.
New Photo Workshop Artistic Effects
Amazing new artistic effects can transform even the most humble snapshot into something rather extraordinary.
QR Code Maker
QR codes on your invitations let your guests scan your party info into their mobile devices!
Place a single photo inside a headline making it into a word picture!
Three New Crop Tools!
Three handy new cropping tools include the inside out crop that lets you cut holes in graphics (rather than just around their edges) so you can make, say, a photo frame out of an airplane picture!
Lots of New Templates
Our artists have been busy creating great looking new quick start templates for every project type, from calendars to newsletters and crafts.
Thousands of New Photos and Graphics
New Design for Every Application Area
We've crafted a beautifully upgraded interface that we think will surprise and delight current users. Most effects now happen "live" on the design desk (no more popup windows) – including shadows, glow, color and texture, and various special effects. And you will find lots of handy touches like a palette launcher in the bottom toolbar that makes it easy to find what you're looking for.
