I don’t remember when I bought The Print Shop app, but it was years ago. Think of everything you can get from a print shop– cards, flyers, labels, graphic design– and you get that in The Print Shop app for the Mac.
Indispensable, My Dear Watson!
If you wanted to go into the print shop business this is the app to have. It makes short work of most printing projects yet is sufficiently sophisticated that it even does QR codes.
Think of this as a subset of desktop publishing; that part of the business which needs to print labels, CD and DVD covers, flyers, posters, calendars, business cards, advertisements, pamphlets, greeting cards, envelopes, banners, and more.
It’s like having a print shop version of Photoshop, complete with graphic design options like text in a circle, templates for printing projects, photo effects and even photo fonts.
Graphic elements drop in to place and can be resized on the fly. The real strength of The Print Shop is the selection of templates for nearly any project you can think of.
I have much love and respect for The Print Shop because I’ve used it for years, but it’s also representative of a dying art. Printing.
That The Print Shop is a valuable tool to the small print shop, a home office, or a small business is a given.
The learning curve is even less than a typical desktop publishing app, and the most recent upgrade brings new photo cropping tools, font and text options, to the 21st century.
Yes, it’s a package which has few equals, but it’s also not exactly a screaming fast tool even on my 27-inch iMac with 16GB of RAM. The only Mac app that is similar is the equally capable Swift Publisher, which actually costs less.
