Best Mac Greeting Card app, update now works with Lion, Mountain Lion
Hallmark Card Studio for Mac is a port (a third party company converted the Windows version for use on Mac) of the best-selling Hallmark Card Studio Basic 2011. It is very easy to use, and has a variety of designs for all occasions. The designs are from the basic design pack for the Windows version, but with one neat feature: it's integrated with iPhoto so you can easily add or substitute your own pictures for the provided ones. A deluxe card pack is available as an in-app purchase.
There are tons of reviews stating that this product doesn't work with Lion or later - that was fixed in an update last fall and it works just fine now. I haven't been able to crash the app once in printing dozens of cards.
It's a bit behind the PC version in terms of features and the number of cards available - you'll find 10-15 basic cards for any major event or occasion. They are attractive, well-written and designed specifically to look good when printed by an inkjet.
The reason I give it four stars is because compared to the Windows version, it's just okay - but compared to anything else I've seen for Mac it's the best available. It's a bit pricey for what you get, but cheaper than either the Hallmark or American Greetings web card stores. It's faint praise to say that it's a good application because it's better than anything else, but that's really what you need to know in deciding to buy it.
Hallmark treating MAC users as 2nd class citizens
Like others, I used/upgraded HALLMARK CARD STUDIO on Windows systems annually because we LOVED IT!! However, our conversion to MAC and subsequent dowload of HALLMARK CARD STUDIO has, and remains, a HUGE disapointment! Another reviewer hit it on the head, finding the card one wants to create/send is a TIME CONSUMING exercise in futility! The WINDOWS version offers “categories” which can quickly narrow down what type, and then preview, a card one wants to create. With the MAC version, one MUST SCROLL through the cards to find the right one, which is terribly time consuming. A call to Hallmark Support for help was a terribly frustrating experience. SORRY HALLMARK, "WHEN YOU CARE ENOUGH TO” allow us to "SEND THE VERY BEST," you SHOULD offer support that backs up your claim to fame to ALL customers! “Sorry that only applies to Windows versions” is NOT a suitable/reasonable response!! You’re costing yourself a lot of “potential” MAC customers,…and losing many others who had been “loyal” customers. You HAVE a good product, but NOT for MAC users. That’s NOT good for business!!
I actually Liked this app. I have created several cards with it and I've only had it one day. It's so nice not having to go to the store and stand there FOREVER and go through cards. Plus, ok, I didn't get the chance to get to the store for Mothers day, and by the time I went They stopped selling the cards. Thanks to this program I can make cards that are out of season. I liked the user friendly interface and honestly, it's one of the fewer programs i've used that actually prints out the way It appears on the screen. Overall I love this program Makes very nice cards, the only thing I wish is that there are more cards. Don't get me wrong, There is a Large collection of cards to choose from, but for something I will use exclusively in the future for this purpose I would like a little bit more. I'm hoping that there will be some option to download an update maybe to expand upon my available card library.
