Greeting Card Factory Deluxe heavily emphasizes that this greeting card software is as easy to use as 1-2-3, and in fact, it is. With a clean, well-organized interface and easily accessible tools, you can create great-looking, customized greeting cards almost effortlessly.
Greeting Card Factory Deluxe lets you create very attractive printed cards, but this otherwise excellent greeting card maker has one important drawback: It focuses almost entirely on printed products. Unfortunately, you cannot produce electronic cards with sounds or music. However, you can email greeting cards that do not contain sound or music, upload cards to Facebook and create a CD photo slide show with background music.
This greeting card software is equipped with more than 26,000 templates, so you can choose or make cards for every occasion imaginable. You also get more than 94,000 clip art options and more than 1,200 fonts and text effects. If you don't want to use pre-made card templates, which you can alter if you choose, you can start from the beginning with a blank template and produce an entirely original card. You also can import photos if you want, but you cannot import your own clip art.
Command ribbons sit across the top and down the left hand side of the screen, with art gallery, text effects, colors and other effects on the right. You can do such things as place text on curves, add drop shadows and change colors, among other things. Photo editing is simple, and you can crop, rotate and greatly improve the pictures you use with the software's photo editor.
The help and support offered by Nova Development is great. You get a user manual and the company website provides phone and email support, FAQs, a user forum and live chat.
