The Print Shop - The Print Shop Companion

The Print Shop Companion, developed by Roland Gustafsson and released in 1985, added a calendar feature, an updated graphic editor, font and border editors, and a "Creature Maker" game, as well as an expanded library of fonts, borders, and graphics. Initially, to use the new fonts and borders in The Print Shop, Companion had to modify the original program; subsequent releases of The Print Shop included built-in support for Companion.

In 1986 the first Apple Macintosh version was released. It featured graphics by Marney Morris and was the most powerful version at the time. It was popular in schools and contained a unique feature in which graphics could be transferred to or from a MacPaint file.

Graphics libraries were a hot item for The Print Shop, and came from Brøderbund and other vendors. Libraries were produced for the original version and continued to be rolled out as late as the 1990s. User-produced graphics were also commonly distributed by various user groups, and even submitted to disk magazines, such as the Softdisk family of magazines.

Famous quotes containing the words companion, print and/or shop:

    I have found it a singular luxury to talk across the pond to a companion on the opposite side.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    For a long time I was reporter to a journal, of no very wide circulation, whose editor has never yet seen fit to print the bulk of my contributions, and, as is too common with writers, I got only my labor for my pains. However, in this case my pains were their own reward.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A good customer should not change his shop, nor a good shop change its customers.
    Chinese proverb.
