1.0 out of 5 stars Locks Up Windows 7 October 6, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
Today I had to print a card before my kids got on the bus for school. I fired up Printmaster 2012 and said I'll just print a card. Well I ended up hard resetting my computer twice and almost missed the Bus. Still no card. It casues windows 7 to hang when opening up a project. I patched it as of Oct. 2011 and it still has bugs and hangs. I tested it on 3 different PCs with same result. I would look for an older copy that is more stable. The QA of this product is a major fail and I recommend avoiding it until they clean it up.
Shame on you ENCORE/Broderbund!!! Using this once great product to sell online content is just wrong. When the finance people start running a company and the designers and engineers are ignored, this product is the result. Encore Software Printmaster 2012 Platinum

Update: Problems may be related to Printmaster's use of JAVA and security on windows 7.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY September 1, 2011
By PattyB
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I have used several versions of printmaster in the past. This version is awful. If I could give it zero stars, I would. I only downloaded it because I've loved the other versions. I bought a mac and had to start anew so went with the newest. Don't make the same mistake. Customer support is nonexistent. I've tried several different routes to try to get help but to no avail. This version is so different from the others. It's very, very user UNFRIENDLY.
Don't buy it unless you have unlimited amounts of time to figure it out---and then, don't expect results. Awful product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wast of time & money - you are warned January 17, 2012
By RichC

Encore should be ashamed of this product...

I have used Printmaster v8 for many years, creating simple cards and posters, but mostly for creating yearly calendars as presents for family. This year I finally upgraded my home computers to Windows 7. I originally attempted to load PMv8, but incompatibility errors stopped the installation. So I decided to upgrade to the latest PrintMaster 2012. What a mistake...

So what's wrong with PM 2012, well pretty much everything from my perspective, but here's a list of my main complaints.
- install took forever, not sure why, but 1/2 hour on a very fast Quad HP. You get one DVD.
- User interface is ridiculously difficult to understand. I hate today's trends in software, use icons instead of real words, consolidate as much as possible.
- Most images are on the Encore website - at least the 'good' images. The images that are PC resident in my opinion look like early website clipart from the 1980/90's - very cheesy. You'll have to pay extra money (yep an additional fee) for the more modern/popular images designs. I found this out the hard way in my first project. Very sneaky of Encore, and sleazy.
- You MUST be connected to the internet to have software work successfully. Encore may debate this, but with most 'good' designs only available from the website - duh.
- Functionality and capabilities that were once in PMv8 simply are no longer available in the latest software. Yes, things evolve, but I have created many years of calendars using PMv8, and PM 2012 is worthless for doing calendars. It simply removed many of the features that made doing calendars so easy. And then to top it, most of the templates are an additional cost!!!
- Encore is push installing software.

1.0 out of 5 stars maybe ok for a computer engineer to use November 13, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
This product is balky, awkward, and not at all intuitive. It's hard to believe that one would need or want a user manual in this day and age of software, but a thick book might be the only way to make this program usable. They are going backwards with this program.

1.0 out of 5 stars Printmaster Platinum 2012 January 1, 2012
By Kathylu

This has to be the worst program written by Broderbund ever. You cannot print half fold or quarter fold cards unless you use an Avery template. It's instructions are convoluted. I had a Printmaster 7.0 Premier that I loved and thought I'd update it with a newer version. Mistake...
There are also cookie issues (they want you to allow them to install tracking cookies), java problems, etc. Broderbund/Encore you are going backwards instead of forward with this product. It's going in the garbage - happily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Print Master Platinum 2012 November 15, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I have used Printmaster through almost all of the versions which is a very long time. Never have I had any problems using any of the other versions. This one is ABSOLUTLY IMPOSSIBLE to use unless are you hours and hours to spend creating anyone project. Then if you are lucky it will print out correctly. Otherwise you have wasted all your time. I have never been able to get print out a greeting card correctly. Neither has a computer enginer or spent several hours on my PC trying to get the program running correctly. Borderbund has just lost a long time luser as I could get no help from them at all with the program. The user manual online is of no help either. I wasted my money on this program and now have to buy another program to use with windows 7.

3.0 out of 5 stars PrintMaster 2012 February 7, 2012
By jrodie
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I purchased this card program as a replacement for American greetings create-a-card 3. Which will not work on my windows 7 64 bit O.S.? As most people know once you find a card program it is hard to find a replacement one that does Cards the way you like. I found this program very hard to do a quick personalized card, And the card size that I was used to using, It does work and has a lot of other gadgets that I don't use but I can make cards if I plan ahead as it will take an hour instead of just 5 min compared to my old program. And be prepared for doing your cards over a few times as it does not always print the same way depending on what card you make. I am not real happy with this card program and if you do the down load don't download the complete program as it will never finish, there is no download manager to continue were you leave off form. You will have to do it right from the beginning only to have it stop and try all over again. My advice buy the disk don't download.
