Turn your personal computer into a personal print shop.

Now with only a few keystrokes, write, design, and print like a pro. Everything that you produce will be as unique and personal as your own signature.

What are you going to make first?
Maybe you'll begin with personal stationery, or perhaps a letterhead or an original logo. But don't stop there! Create invitations, greeting cards and flyers. Print and frame your favorite quotation. Announce your garage or school sale. Make advertising materials for your business. The hardest thing is knowing where to stop!

What used to be work, can now be just plain fun.
Everything you need is in the program: typestyles, border designs, background patterns and a wide range of pictures and symbols. No knowledge of computer graphics is needed at all. The Print Shop will guide you every step of the way, and print out every masterpiece automatically. Need a greeting card? Make one in minutes. How about a jumbo banner? Simple- make it thirty feet long if you like. The Print Shop is as unlimited as your own imagination. And the complete, illustrated manual is filled with examples to stimulate your creativity.

Design elements include:

  • Eight typestyles in multiple sizes.
  • Three type formats: Solid, outline and three dimensional
  • Nine border designs, ten abstract patterns and dozens of pictures and symbols.
  • A graphics editor that lets you create original pictures and logos, or modify the ready-to-use graphics in the program.
  • Text editing features: Automatic centering, right and left justification.
  • Capability to super-impose text over any picture or design.
  • A special "Screen Magic" function allows you to freeze kaleidoscopic patterns to create an endless variety of geometric designs.

Mix and match elements from the menu and use them like building blocks.
