Frustrated by Print Shop 23's problems under Windows 7, I ordered The Print Shop Deluxe 3.0 direct from Broderbund. The redesign efforts are wonderful; it acts like a Windows 7 native. Except for a few things:

In windows 7 64-bit, it crashes about 3 or 4 times per hour. Even something as simple as "start a new project from scratch" can make it crash. I never did bring even one project to completion before losing it in a crash.

In Windows 7 32-bit, it does not crash ... instead it gives a spurious "out of memory" error message about 3 or 4 times per hour, and does not complete the operation. This is on a 4 GB machine with nothing else running, and only one project open!

If you use a type size of 125% or larger in Windows 7, you will not be able to see or click on the entire Print Shop screen. It erroneously assumes that it can use the space behind the system taskbar! Of course, while you may be able to see the space behind parts of the taskbar, you cannot click on it. The largest type size that sort of works in 120%.

There are also the usual assortment on random bugs in software that has been released prematurely. For example, selecting clip art or photos only works after you have selected your first photo or clip art. It takes about 5 tries before your first selection "takes"; then it works correctly about 80% of the time.

Broderbund Support is very good about letting you submit a request for Tech Support or Customer Support. Unfortunately, after two weeks, they have not responded to ANY of my four requests.

This software as of September 2011 is great for masochists. The rest of us will have to wait for the first bug fix release ... or maybe the second.

I've used print shop programs for years. So when we got a new computer, I decided to upgrade to the newest. I didn't read reviews b/c I like their products. I haven't even finished my first project b/c you can't copy and paste things and it's just hard to use in general. I haven't heard a thing from tech support or customer service. I was hoping they'd just let me use the next older version but I haven't heard from them. Very frustrating!

I suggest that unless you have a ton of patience, you wait until this software is debugged. It is totally dysfunctional. I purchased it on the release date of Aug 23 and have been unable to print anything from it. It crashes, locks up, and will not print. Giving it a print command closes the program and it won't start properly again without a system reboot. Broderbund/Encore made a severe mistake by releasing this software in such a poor state. They say they're working on it...but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the cure!

It is really difficult to review something that you can't do anything with. I'm running windows7 with 64bit and having about the same difficulties as all of the other reviewers. I downloaded this product directly thinking that I couldn't go wrong for the price--wrong! It doesn't seem to matter what I click on because it crashes every time. One time I managed to open a blank project and even managed to import one file picture into it but that was it! As soon as I attempted to import any graphic images, all I could ever get was a "server error". I was unable to open any "headline" text, so I tried to enter plain ol' text and then I couldn't edit it in any way. After reading these other reviews, I haven't even attempted to contact customer service. Maybe they'll eventually provide updates/fixes, but I won't hold my breath and I certainly won't be purchasing any Print Shop software in the future. Shame, because there was a day when this company produced some great software, and as long as I can keep my XP going on the other computer, I'll keep using the old reliable stuff.

If I could give it less than 1 star I would. I can't believe they even released it. It is exceptionally slow buggy and crashes.

Fool me twice, shame on me!

Like the other people who reviewed this product it keeps crashing. And crashing. And crashing. I didn't buy it from here. Instead I bought it from the company itself as a download and have asked for a letter of destruction. Twice. So far...nothing. However, I'm here to critique the product and not the manufacturer's LOUSY customer service, aren't I?

They tried to make it look like Office 2007/2010. It does but it won't stop crashing. I tried it on a 2 week old machine and an 8 month old machine. Both run Windows 7 premium home, 64 bit. Both handle other creation software without a problem. When it didn't crash one time I did create a project. There was a slight problem: it only saved PART of my project. That was rather irritating.

I also don't care for their search methods. It isn't specific enough.

As my title says I keep wondering who their developers are. I wrote a review on another product that also had issues. It's almost as if they don't beta test their software enough or just ignore feedback.

If I had the money, ability, back-up and resources I'd create my own product and shut their business down because instead of getting better, they're getting worse.

Wake up Encore/Broderbund! Your reputation stinks!
