I have a very exciting and different sort of giveaway today. That’s because a lot of us are stay-at-home parents, work-at-home parents, or entrepreneurial sorts. We’re always starting something new, whether it’s a business, a kid’s project, or yet another blog. So when I had the opportunity to test the Broderbund PrintShop 23, I thought, “It’s very different for dkMommy Spot yet it’s so perfect!”
The PrintShop 23 can help you do everything from designing your own greeting cards to starting your new business. I’ve been trying the Pro Publisher Deluxe, which has been a whiz at designing dkMommy Spot business cards and other dkMommy projects I keep putting off. But the PrintShop is very easy to use with premade templates you can tweak and alter to your heart’s desire. And the best part for me is, I don’t have to go get 500 business cards printed at an exorbitant price, then wonder how I’m going to get rid of them all. I can print as I go. Saves money, saves paper, saves a lot of headaches for me.
There are three versions of PrintShop: The Standard ($29.99), Deluxe ($49.99) and the Pro Publisher Deluxe ($99.99). All three contain hundreds of thousands of images and graphics, hundreds of fonts, project templates, a photo workshop with editing, and lots more fun stuff. I spent a large chunk of my weekend playing with the program and found it endlessly enjoyable. Tutorials can be read as a PDF, printed, or watched as video. The layout is simple, the tools are self-explanatory, and the end results are very professional. Overall, no matter what you’re looking to print and design yourself, you’ll find PrintShop will be a great timesaver and a whole lot of fun.
Want to see for yourself? I have one Standard version of PrintShop ($29.99) and one Deluxe version ($49.99) to give away to two randomly chosen winners just in time for preparing your own Christmas cards. Or get that business off the ground you keep putting off because it all seemed too complicated. Or surprise your boss with a great PDF document, or design your own family newsletters or stationary or slideshows or postcards or…
