4.0 out of 5 stars great for some, not for others September 14, 2003
By A Customer
Even though there were a lot of negative reviews I bought this product mostly because PC Magazine rated it one of the best (5 stars) and the price can't be beat with the discounts. Here's my take if you read the other reviews like I did.
This program tries to make it easy to start a project (with a walk through wizard) but with any publishing software, you have to know what you are doing. That includes understanding your printer settings, etc. Yes, printer settings can be changed with the program (as with most any software) so it will take some time for inexperienced users to understand how to use it properly.
I must say, this program offers a ton of nice clip art, photos, etc than most other programs in this class. It has 2 CD's full of clipart but you'll need a lot of disk space to install it all. The broadband version of PrintShop accesses the clipart from the internet but with big hard drives available these days, save yourself some headache and buy the regular software, not the broadband one. If you don't have a lot of harddrive space (a few gigs to spare) I wouldn't suggest buying this.
There is no user manual included and the help files are not as in depth as I would like. I find it hard to believe that a complicated program such as this does not have at least a printable copy of a user manual. So be warned, if you not an experienced software user this product might not be for you.
I also saw some negative reviews on photo editing/printing. I haven't tried it so I can't compare. (I use other software for photo editing and printing). There are a lot of great photo editing software packages available. If you're purchasing this for that reason, you might want to look somewhere else.

1.0 out of 5 stars The last piece of Broderbund Software I will ever buy October 13, 2002
By A Customer
This is the 4th or 5th version of The Print Shop that I have owned. The last few have been very buggy, causing my computer to freeze up, generally at the worst possible time. But this version is the worst. This one froze up my computer during the install.
I was lucky. Windows XP repaired itself for me. I looked at Broderbund's web site for information on how to get the product intalled and decided not to even try their work around. I've simply run out of patience with a product who's audience is the average user, which demands guru-level computer skills just to install the software.

1.0 out of 5 stars Broderbund Print Shop Delux 15 December 7, 2002
Having used previous versions of this software, I was disappointed and frustrated by this program. The lack of a manual is a major headache, as searching the help function is like looking for a light switch in the dark. The inability to access and use graphics I've used from previous PS versions is just unbelievable. I've also found numerous bugs in the program, such as the fact that some of the the Avery label templates actually don't work, believe it or not, even when applied directly to the prepackaged PS 15 label projects. The labels print progressively lower until they're off the page at the bottom. I called Broderbund several times, and after 30 minutes on hold each time, they attempted to use the same templates and encountered the same glitch. I got no help, even when the Product Manager was called in. For some graphics projects, I've actually found it more productive to use the MS Word table function with Avery labels - a sad commentary.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot of bang for the buck July 14, 2003
By JR Fan
I have previous versions of the Print Shop and thought it was good. I purchased PrintShop Deluxe on DVD, Ver. 15 because I couldn't get my old program to work on my new computer with WinXP. The new version seems to rely only on its built in graphics, photos and templates. There are not a lot of tools to do your own thing. I also had immediate problems with the software in scrolling through the fonts -- the program freezes. This is apparently a well-known problem to Broderbund as their "fix" on the web page is to delete several of the fonts. When I asked why (through their customer service site) there was no fix and they thought it was acceptable to delete fonts, they blamed it on XP and then invited me to buy their newest version. I guess I thought that's what I was doing when I was at CompUSA. Now I know...they keep the old [stuff] out there until it's sold out.

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, MONEY OR ENERGY ON THIS PRODUCT! February 17, 2003
By A Customer
This is one piece of lousy software. There are bugs all over the place. However, my chief complaint is that it won't print correctly. What you see in print preview is NOT what you get. My biggest disappointment is with technical support. Basically, my problem was ignored and I received no help at all. I asked repeatedly if Broderbund would write a fix for my problem - my problem was never acknowledged or addressed. What little bit of feedback I did get was to suggest/indicate that I didn't know what I was doing and the problem was me. After going through all of their "suggestions/solutions" I was right back where I started and still didn't get my problem resolved. I was sent to their on-line solutions - which was not a solution. I finally gave up on technical support and on this software. I would really like a refund on this product, but will never get any satisfaction out of Broderbund. This is one of those cases in that you get what you paid for...not much!
