Selecting a Ready-Made Project

Creating a project from a Ready-Made template is easy.  A Ready-Made template is a completed project that you can choose from The Print Shop's extensive gallery of projects.  You only need to customize the project to fit your needs by adding your personal information, modifying text and graphics, and adding special effects, as you want.

From the New Project Wizard a list of project types are available to you.  Click on the type of project to display pre-made templates.

To start your project from a Ready-Made template, choose which type of project to create from the New Project Wizard.  Once you have selected a project type the Ready-Made Project Gallery will open.

When you find a project you like, you have several options:

  • Single or Double Click on the preview of the project file to open it for further Design and Modifications.
  • Hovering your mouse cursor over it will allow you to click on actions.  The first of which is to open the project.  This is the same as when you click or double click on the image.
    Actions menu
  • Make Favorite marks a project as a favorite.  Marking a project as a favorite makes it easy to reuse a project for multiple events, the project will appear at the top of the list for its category as long as there is nothing in the search box that would prevent it from appearing.
  • View Project Info tells you everything about the project before you use it.  Some of the information includes: default paper stock, project name, project type, and how it's categorized in the gallery.  It will also allow you to modify its status as a favorite.
