PrintMaster, I want my "Boo Thang" back!

Updated on July 9, 2015

Printmaster Desktop Publishing Software

Software EASY enough for me!

Many years ago I purchased a program so I could create art, posters, flyers, graphics, banners, t-shirts, newsletters, general business forms, and advertising information.

I needed to earn a little cash while my kids were growing up and with limited time, get things done quickly and easily; I had no formal software training.

PrintMaster was my choice. Once I learned to navigate myself around the system I was hooked! Then they came out with PrintMaster Gold....I was never the same! I became a Printmaster JUNKIE! needing my daily PM fix.

Over time, my priorities changed and being a mom and raising kids became my first priority so I put away my toys. (I secretly missed it though. Did I say that out loud?)

I loved PrintMaster Gold, this is Platinum 16.0.

If you want an easy and quick professional looking graphics program that can do anything from banners to newsletters, go ahead and click the orange button.

If you're not sure, keep reading the rest of RitaAnn's~ Review

About a year ago I quit my job, took my grocery money and got a new computer. While at the store, I looked for my old friend.....Print Master. There it was, on the shelf, waiting for me! (angelic music playing in my head) I grabbed my old friend, held it close and hurried home for the reunion. I set up my new computer and didn't even stress over all the new things I had to learn, I quickly installed the PrintMaster and BANG! It can't be used without internet.

Seriously?!

I knew things had changed and more people were online, I was okay with that, but what I wasn't okay with was the fact that I just paid for a program I could NOT use.

Let me say that again.....

I paid more than $50+ that had been set aside to put food in my refridegerator for a product that was useless to someone who had no internet! I know I should have read the package carefully, I got too excited! I knew it was my fault. BUT "I WAS IN LOVE!" I shouted internally. Doesn't love count for something? "What's love got to do with it" is now singing in my head (in case you didn't know; Tina Turner)

Through it all-

*The store would not refund my money because I'd already installed it on my computer.

*Printmaster was unreachable unless I was online.

My hard earned money was gone. I was crushed, broke, and unable to do anything about it.

Printmaster was my original plan for bringing in some money.

I quickly went into gear and found something free online but the learning curve was slow and I still don't use the product, though free, very much. It's just not the same as my "first love". Girls, you know how it is, nothing compares to your first love and your never quite the same after.


So, PrintMaster people, if you're out there, please keep in mind that you've forgotten one simple thing:

*The customer. (Me. sad face)

You've forgotten that NOT everyone can purchase a product they can be stuck with.

Not everyone has internet access all the time (many don't have it at all)

Money is too hard to come by-

Maybe you can come up with something on your next update so that we can use it offline and while we travel. If you do, I'll love you forever!

If you have access to internet, if you like graphics, being addicted, and will tell PrintMaster to visit this site. Go get PrintMaster Mega Version! (My title)

You'll be glad you did.

If you're still not sure, carry on...

"PrintMaster Boo Thang"

Comes without warranty of addiction.

Sorry folks, you'll be hooked too,

A Junkie for UR "BOO".

Templates, Graphics, Designs Oh My!

Now, if you're doing anything online, you'll have need of a product that has easy to use templates and graphics galore that you can scroll through, and easily navigate, it'll walk you step by step through to a beautiful project. You'll need graphics, web designing tools, banners, flyers, buttons, newsletters, envelopes, stickers, cd/dvd covers, all kinds of announcements, templates for anything and an easy program. This software has it all and it's EASY enough for a BEGINNER. Whew! I said all that in one breath. I almost worked myself into a happy dance thinking about it.

If you need a product that you can open, throw a template up, add your thoughts, a photo or two and BAMB! It's ready to print, then you'll appreciate this software. , ...Oh, NOTE only if you have internet access, can you use PrintMaster 2012 Platinum version or newer.

I almost got excited about it again. I need to calm down.

Anyway, if that's what you need in a product then go for PrintMaster, it's everything I've mentioned and more. I'm not sure how it compares to other similar programs, I never strayed from my first love, I might have flirted with others 'a little'. I just keep coming back to PrintMaster though.

I have seen the company grow since the last time I used it on a regular basis. It appears the Printmaster family has grown and is doing well.....without me. I do use the program occasionally and it's wonderful. I still love it, but I don't get my daily 'fix', which is not only heartbreaking but you know how women get when they miss that 'boo thang'. So yea, I'm a little phsyco at times....yelling at people, sometimes I even poke them in the eyeball, but I can't help it, I'm in love!

Printmaster, hurry fix me! I need this to work without internet. (did I say that outloud?) Sorry, it wasn't lady like but I need my boo back.

Every day, anytime, all over the house, inside, outside, in the living room, on the floor, on the couch, traveling.......


I need my fix!


See people, what Printmaster will make you do? Just wait till you start using it.

I'll be quiet now.


Go get UR "Boo Thang" now

RitaAnn~

...who is not taking this thing well. I want my boo thang back.
