Today, I’m giving away eight licenses for SpringPublisher Pro on my geek dad blog. SpringPublisher is an easy to use desktop publishing software for designing and printing business cards, flyers, postcards, letterheads, and announcements. I’ve only played around with the software for a little bit. Based on my experience, I can tell you SpringPublisher Pro is not as powerful as Adobe PageMaker. It’s not even close. However, if you don’t need a professional page layout tool, SpringPublisher is something you might want to take a look at. It’s easy to use and significantly cheaper than PageMaker’s $500 list price.
With SpringPublisher, dads and moms can design, print, and save projects as JPG files. SpringPublisher works on Windows 7, 2000, XP, and Vista. There are two versions of SpringPublisher: a free version and a pro version ($23.95).
- You can add images, texts, vector shapes, logos and arrange them as you like
- Includes special effects like shadows, opacity, rotation
- You can download professionally-designed, high quality templates from the template store
- Generates artwork with a maximum output of 350 dpi
- You can to print your artwork either with your own printer or at a professional print shop (note: I didn’t see a way for making bleeds)
Thanks to SpringPublisher, eight readers of my geek dad blog will each win a license for SpringPublisher Pro. The winners will be randomly selected. The deadline to enter the giveaway is Friday, August 26th (Pacific time). The giveaway is open to both USA and international readers. To enter the giveaway, let me know what you plan to design with the software (business cards, postcards, letterhead, flyer, etc).

[Disclosure: The giveaway prize will be provided by SpringPublisher, but they are not the administrators of the giveaway on my blog. I am not liable for the prize. I received a license to review their software. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.]
