What's new in the Print Shop 4? Plenty!

This new version of The Print Shop 4 makes it easier than ever for you to create stunning projects. With new features from pop-up card templates to professionally designed clip art and from new drawing and spray can tools to 3D headlines, The Print Shop 4 will amaze you with what it can help you design.

New Pop-Up Greetings

As much fun to make as they are to receive, popup cards will surprise and delight whoever opens them, and add a touch of fun to any event. The only machinery needed is a pair of scissors. Print popup greetings on any inkjet or color laser printer using plain paper or card stock from a local copy shop.

New 3D Headlines

When 2D text just falls flat it's time to round out your projects with our shiny new super easy to use 3D Text tools in The Print Shop 4. Choose materials from platinum to plastic, add rich metallic colors, and turn on dramatic studio lighting. Or wrap photos, fabric or the pattern of your choice. All to create deliciously rich 3D headline letters so realistic you'll think you can just peel them right off the page.

Bar Code Creator

Get those sales ringing by designing your own creative bar codes.

New Easy Art Tools

It might seem strange but The Print Shop for Mac has never been able to draw a straight line before. Or a curly, wavy or spiky one for that matter. But now in The Print Shop 4 you can. So go ahead and paint eyeglasses on the dog, and let your creativity soar. You can draw and paint with with dozens of brushes, shapes and spray paint with our new Art Tools palette. Enjoy!
