You can't go wrong with Print Shop. My wife and daughter use it for cards, banners, and invitations.

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll pass them on to my wife. I totally forgot Printshop. Used to use that years ago on the PC.

Oh, and as for Easy Card...yep..as advertised...easy...makes cards.
Maybe we'll upgrade to Difficult Card Pro once we've mastered the simple stuff.

As a side note. You know whats most encouraging? Not that I found the switch to Mac so easy, but that my wife did. I really expected push-back from a long-time PC user but she really seems to like it. No complaints. Always a good thing!

I used Print Shop back in the day with a Panasonic dot-matrix printer. We would make banners for our fraternity. Laughing

I think I may have a copy of this. On a 5 1/4 inch floppy disk.

I have a huge box of 5 1/4" BASF and Elephant Memory disks around here somewhere. Actually it was on like ten 3 1/2" disks. On the subject of 5 1/2" disks. Do you remember using a one-hole paper punch to notch out the other side of disks to cheat the man? Laughing

I am old enough to have personally used a 10" floppy drive, along with a cassette recorder.

So the answer is yes.
