What can you get for $49.95 these days? Generally not all that much but take a look at Nova Developments Greeting Card Factory Deluxe V5 and you get 20,000+ cards and projects - 85,000 high quality vector and raster graphics - 700 fonts plus sensational text effects - advanced built in photo editor - custom photo calendars - 250+ photo cards (new 4 x 8 size) - save cards as pdf - cd greeting card creator to play on PC and TV (CD rewriter required) - keyword search for pre made templates - electronic greeting card creator - built in address book and birthday/anniversary etc reminder. That is some list but then again this is a giant of a program covering 6CDs..

Creating shop quality greeting cards/photo cards/calendars etc has never been easier, all you have to do is browse the templates, now made easier with keyword search, and select one. Next customize it to your preferences if you want to and then print, it really is that simple. Alternatively you can create your own unique cards using the massive high quality graphics and text resources that this program has or you can import your own images and graphics. With Greeting Card Factory Deluxe you can produce shop quality Greeting Cards, Announcements, Invitations, Photo Cards, Thank You Notes, Stationery, Envelopes, Notecards, Labels and stickers, Puzzle cards, Web Projects, Photo Projects, Menus, Certificates, Crafts, Gift Tags, Electronic Greetings, PhotoCD Greeting Cards, Pop-up Cards, Custom Photo Calendars.

It is very easy to change card sizes and types (half fold, quarter fold etc.) Most other similar programs are a bit restrictive on card sizes, not so with this one. As well as the stock sizes and Avery standards you can also set your own custom size giving you endless possibilities. You can of course import images and clip art (if you need to) all of which are adjustable using the grab handles that appear when you put any object on the page.

I reviewed V4 of this program and thought that was superb but this just blows the competition away and to top it all the makers offer a 90 day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied. I don't know how they do it for the price, it is stunning value for money.
