Mr - Contrary to the other reviews, I believe the application works great and does what it is intended to do which is make projects easily. I have used a PC for years and have always used Print Shop and loved it. I just bought my first Macbook and wanted to make some business cards. It is impossible to do easily with Pages or Word, but very simple with Print Shop. I don’t believe there is a significant difference from the PC version.

Review by Hyperblast16

Incredibly Disappointed - Let me start off by saying that I have been using The Print Shop products for YEARS - since The Print Shop Deluxe Version 20 came out - which was over 10 years ago. I got a new Mac and cannot install my PC version of The Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe 22 on it, but needed to create some postcards - so The Print Shop was the first software I thought of. I didn’t think twice before purchasing the software (as I had always had success with my projects in the past), but I am so gravely disappointed that I did. I purchased this software less than an hour ago and I already want my money back. The Avery templates that are available for postcards are disgraceful - not to mention that you cannot rotate the project so that it is vertical - you can only work horizontal (or at least that’s the case with the template I need). Want to have two projects open at once? Not with this version. You have to close out of the project you are in before you can open another one - which is a HORRIBLE setup, as I have always worked on multiple projects at once. The print settings are very limited and overall the software isn’t worth $0.01, let alone the $29.99 that I paid. I am heartbroken and saddened to be writing a review on a product that I loved the older PC versions of, but I regret ever purchasing this for my Mac. I WANT MY MONEY BACK! Anyone looking for software to create projects on - save your money and look elsewhere.

DON’T BUY THIS CRAP!!! - This software is a complete waste of money. It is nothing like the one I use at work. I will not be able to use it even once.

Review by feeling frustrated!!!!

Mrs. - I purchased this download in order to make our church calendar on it. It will pull up a calendar but will not let you input in information on a daily basis! And then try and find help. Forget it! I should of looked at the 1 1/2 stars it received before I purchased it. I have been using Print Shop for years but this one for the Mac stinks!

Review by Qizqdz

The Print Shop - The app I was looking for was The Print Shop by MacKiev. I thought this one was it, but it was not. I think others have made the same mistake, thus the bad reviews. Some of the graphics used in the advertising for this one look the same as the graphics used in The Print Shop by MacKiev, thus the confusion. After a lengthy process itunes says they will refund my money.

Review by Horsefeed

Pip - Very similar to a former Print MASTER program I once had…nothing really easy to use and just lacking in choices. I find it very user un-friendly, struggling to find options that were once very obvious on a former Print Shop edition I once had. What did they go and change for? Applying pictures to address labels takes major contortions to bring them down to size. Font selections are missing that I use to use on a regular basis. The opitions for text are either missing or miss-named so it’s hard to find the details that you want. Nope, not worth it.

Review by Bannerattempt

Needs much Improvement - After using this software, specifically for banner making, I wanted to pull teeth. Would ask for a refund. Couldn’t move my images around without tons of spasms of ads that wouldn’t be there but its a glitch issue. Best way to be described as winning a game of solitare on the computer. You know how the cards jump off and theres like a constant layer by layer of where they’ve been every millisecond? its like that. I could not work because the ads on the side layered themelves into the work and I couldnt see what I was doing. To be super specific it was when I wanted to “Match” another color and paint.
