Hallmark Card Studio 2013 Deluxe | 7.17 GB
Hallmark Card Studio offers over 7,500 cards you can customize to create personalized greeting cards for friends and loved ones. Not only does Card Studio provide the digital designer with an abundance of professionally constructed templates, but with over 9,000 carefully crafted sentiments, you don"t have to possess the verbal prowess of Shakespeare to effectively express yourself.
While some creative printing programs retain a starker and purely functional user interface, Hallmark Card Studio welcomes you with soft pastel backgrounds and soft blue borders. The application"s home screen provides thousands of greeting cards to choose from, and the cards are organized by category, including birthdays, holidays and special days. You literally have thousands of greeting cards at your fingertips. Clicking on Birthdays opens up a browser featuring numerous categories and subcategories. The Kid subcategory, for example, offers various birthday cards designed for children of differing ages. After choosing your card, you have the opportunity to add text, greetings, shapes, clip art, photos and even photo frames.
Hallmark"s catalog has over 18,000 graphics, representing a wide range of categories, including animals, entertainment, religion, science, seasons, etc. While the images offered under the landmarks and landscapes categories are high quality, many of the images and clip art contained within this software take on a more playful tone.
You can add numerous shapes to further customize your greeting card. Circles, squares, octagons and triangles can all be used to great effect. If you prefer to work with your own images, you can import them into Hallmark Card Studio via your camera, scanner or USB drive. Once you have added your image, you can edit them with effects such as oil painting or stained glass. While these and other effects are useful, Card Studio doesn"t boast the array of tools found in more substantial photo editor.
Although Hallmark Card Studio specializes in greeting card customization, you have the ability to personalize other projects for print such as invitations, calendars and scrapbooks. To access these other projects, simply click on Event Planner, located at the bottom of the home screen.
Hallmark Card Studio has made a concerted effort to keep things simple and direct. While some creative printing programs require you to wade through layers of tools and features, Card Studio"s enhancements, such as text, clip art, shapes and greetings are all accessible from one single panel. To add clip art, for example, you simply click on the text button located in the left panel of your screen.
Should you find yourself in need of any clarification, Card Studio provides helpful on-screen instructions, along with a comprehensive user manual and video tutorial. Hallmark"s website offers telephone and email support, in addition to live chat support. If after using Hallmark Card Studio, you find it isn"t for you, you have 60 days to return it for a full refund.
