Software Review:    Hallmark Card Studio 3

Related Links

 

If you own a print program, you probably have already learned how to customize greeting cards to send to your printer. You may also find the options and styles limited and generic, respectively. This dedicated program will provide you with a lot more styles, sentiments, and designs to play around with. 

This program features the Hallmark name, and a nice variety of Hallmark cards for practically any occasion conceivable. The numbers sound rather impressive -- 2.500 Hallmark cards, an equal number of Hallmark "Sentiments" (professionally-written text that can be mixed and matched), 8,000 clip art images, and over 20 special Hallmark fonts to choose from.

Besides creating cards, the software also allows users to customize envelopes, stickers, invitations, stationery, and more.

People who love cards will be thrilled with the program's tools, easy interface, and inspiring samples. 

The software also contains an Event Planner that allows you to keep track of birthdays, anniversaries, and any other day that might call for a card! It also gives users the ability to easily create mailing lists. E-cards, complete with sound and/or animation, are another option.

A color printer is pretty much an artistic necessity with this program. A Deluxe version is also available -- it includes more cards and sentiments to choose from, and, of course, costs more.
