I am debating on buying either PrintMaster or PrintShop.I will be using them for banners,brochures,cards etc. Nothing fancy. Are they basically the same or which do you recommend and why? THANKS

I've been lurking and waiting to see if someone who knows about these programs would answer. I guess nobody wants to recommend one.

I know Elaine, I've been waiting and waiting. I haven't bought either one yet as I want to hear what others say. I guess we'll just have to wait longer. LOL

Have you taken this question to 'COMPUTER HELP'? Go to that area and see if someone can help you. That seems to be the place to ask computer, software etc. questions. Some very knowedgable people get on that. Good luck.

Well I have both programs, and it gets very frustrating to have to constantly be switching cd's.. so I gave in an bought PSP (Paint Shop Pro) and have been taking lessons on the internet.. it is the way to go!

Linda, What kind of lessons are you taking?

I use PrintShop and really like the program. The old versions required changing cd's, but the newer versions give the option of downloading the information and no cd changing is needed. SeniorNet programs use PrintShop as the program used in their Graphics and Imaging classes and the students find it easy to work with.

I have both and i like print shop best.
Another one thats good for cards and banners
and things like that is create a card. It's easy
to use and has lots of templates.

I have Print Master Platinum and I love it. You do have to change discs sometimes ( not always) but it is well worth the effort

I've tried many different programs, and love Printshop the best out of all the cheaper programs.

I have PrintShop version 6 and like it so much I bought a second set of CDs so I'd have a set for each of my computers. I've only made 1 banner, but use mine mostly for labels, cards, letter writing and photo manipulating. I've heard that some versions aren't as good as others, you may want to check at epinions.com or a similar site to read customer reviews before buying. I got my second set off eBay.
