1.0 out of 5 stars Regarding: American Greetings CreataCard Platinum 8 March 18, 2004
By A Customer
I currently have American Greetings CreataCard Gold 3, and I love it. It has been so easy to use, and I like the fact that I can create an envelope, which comes up with my return address already on it, and address it with a single click of the mouse. Then I can change the font and add an image. With the Platinum 8, I have not been able to do that at all. I tried to do their "Mail Merge", even had the instructions in front of me, but it would not work. The setup is not nearly as handy to use, and it is always trying to send me to the Internet for images. I am very disappointed with this product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Upgrade February 13, 2004
By MarieL.
I have Create a Card Platinum 5 and really like it. I haven't upgraded for some time because I thought it was good as is. But I decided to buy the Platinum 8 to check it out. What a rip off. Hardly any upgrades at all in the format. A few new graphics, but what was available to me before is now only available on line. I felt taken buying this and think this company should be ashamed of themselves.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay away from broderbund software July 7, 2005
I wish I could give them zero stars.

Broderbund pulled support for software I owned only 2 years after it was released.

I was unable to install it because it required internet registration which was no longer supported. To solve the problem, they offered to SELL me a different software title.

They must have thought I was stupid. They expected me to give them more money???

This company has second rate software and third rate customer service. Do not buy anything from them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware! Included a virus! April 7, 2005
By Person
I don't know what the heck is up? Has anyone noticed that W95.CIH.Damaged was included with this CD??? Great. I pay all this money, and now I have an (considered to Norton) "unremovable" virus, and that the CD was infected.

Want a virus? Try this CD.

2.0 out of 5 stars Broderbund program October 3, 2005
A Kid's Review
Disappointing! Had used AGC 7 for a couple of years when somehow it started to log out during the middle of a session. I hoped upgrading to AGC Platinum 8 would elimnate the problem. Still have the same problem. Broderbund offers no solution.

2.0 out of 5 stars CreataCard Platinum 8 February 9, 2004
By CS
I've been using CreataCard for eight years. This is my third updated version. The previous version was Gold 2. I have to agree with the other two who wrote their reviews, in that I was disappointed. What I really missed was the rotating screen saver. Another feature that was changed was the art format, which you could open like a book. I'm fortunate in that I still have the Gold 2. If this is your first version of CreataCard, it's worth the buy. If you have, as I do, Gold 2, save your money. In all fairness, since I didn't pay full price, I have chosen to keep the Platinum 8 version, but I will not buy another update.

2.0 out of 5 stars Creatacard Platinum 8 November 5, 2003
So far this is a real dud, much less then I had expected. I have used creatacard 3 plus in the past and this can't come close to being as nice as that one. Platinum 8 does not have the calender with all of the holiday capabilities. I am having trouble printing out my calender in the landscape mode. "Forget me not" will not appear when I turn on my computer which I miss a lot.

This program is an oldie but a goodie. It works with my Windows 8, although it may crash if you don't save it frequently during a project . Easy to use and plenty of options.
