"The Print Shop is still with us three decades later, but less relevant than ever in the wake of stiff competition from rivals like Chronos, who recently upped the ante with a major new update to its own virtual print shop application… This isn’t your father’s application: the bundled clip art is more refined, the templates more elegant." — Macworld Magazine

Start with a template or create your own design.

Custom labels per page.

When you're printing mailing labels, you probably want to use the same design for every label. However, there are times when you may want to use a different design for each label on the page. Up until now, you had to create a separate document for each of your designs and then print each document separately — a very cumbersome process.

Now you can select a particular label on a page and create a special design for just that label. PrintLife makes it easy to copy designs between labels on a page, so you can make minor changes like changing a color or graphic from label to label. You can even create multiple pages of labels where each page has its own custom labels.

Works with Avery marketing labels.

An amazing collection of artwork is included for free!

In order to create stunning projects, you need stunning artwork. PrintLife won't let you down. It comes with a collection valued at $554 if purchased directly from the iScrapbook store. The artwork was created by artists from all over the world and is it not the "cheesey" variety of clipart normally included with software products. It's over 7.6 GB in size and would almost fill two DVDs. It includes over 5,100 graphics and all are 300 d.p.i. which is ideal for printing.

Impress with a 3D headline.

Use a 3D headline to give your card an eye-catching sophistication usually only achievable by professional designers. You get to control everything: the materials used for the headline, the lighting, the reflections, the 3-dimension perspective, and more. You'll be amazed how easy and fun it is to experiment with different looks.

Map on card example.
Use maps to show your event location.

Add a beautiful map to your card to help others see exactly where your event is taking place. This feature is especially useful for remembering out-of-the-way towns on road trips and international destinations that might be unfamiliar to others. Choose from standard, satellite, and hybrid maps. Plus, you can also include routes, points of interest, and marker pins.

NEW! The amazing Photo Analyzer.

Select any photo on your design and then press a special button to see the dominant colors in the photo. You can then create a color scheme based on these colors.

NEW! Create designer-worthy color schemes.

Use the built-in color wheel to discover color combinations based on the same color theory that artists use. To make your color exploration more fun, the color wheel spins when you select a new base color and offers educational tips.

NEW! Perfect blends between colors.

Create blends between two colors to create a monochromatic look that's pleasing to the eye. Supports tints, shades, tones, and custom blends.

NEW! Snatch the color of any pixel.

Use the eyedropper tool to quickly and easily retrieve the color of any pixel on your screen — a convenient way to create color schemes from artwork or source material already on your design.

NEW! Warm vs cool colors.

Warm versus cool refers to the psychological impact colors have in conveying a message. Warm colors are frequently associated with the warm of fire and the sun while cool colors are frequently associated with the coolness of the sea, sky, and foliage. The warm/cool indicator divides the color wheel into warm and cool colors, so you correctly convey the messaging you want.
