Be it a freelancing business or a corporate entity, one of the first few things that you need to do when starting up a new business is to design and print your business card, letterhead and flyer. The problem is, most of us are not creative in nature and designing a nice and beautiful business card can be a difficult task. One alternative is to hire a professional designer to do it for you, but that requires you to set aside a big budget. A cheaper alternative is to make use of design software to get things done.
Spring Publisher is a software that allows you to to design and print Business Card, Flyer, Postcard, Letterhead within a few minutes. It comes with several beautifully designed templates that you can use offhand. All you need to do is to drag and drop the design elements to where you want them to be, type in your name and address and it is ready to send for printing.
When you first launched the application, it will ask you if you want to create a blank project or select a template from a template library. Personally, I am not creative in nature, so I choose to use existing template.
The template library comes with a few templates that you can choose. You can also download more templates from the web template store (available for premium account only).
Once you have selected the template, you can start to do the editing. All the design elements are layered (like Photoshop), so you can easily move them around without affecting others. Things that you can insert to the design include images, text and shapes.
The element properties are shown on the right side bar and you can quickly edit the position, canvas size, width, height, color and many other attributes easily.
This is what I come up with after 5 minutes of playing with it.
Spring Publisher is like a stripped down version of Photoshop – comprehensive, yet easy to use. It is built specifically for designing namecard, letterhead and flyer. The drag and drop feature really make it easy to use.
The free version is fully functional, but if you upgrade to the premium version, you can access the online template library and download many beautiful templates for free. In addition, you can also print high quality output at 350dpi.
