Customer Reviews

Adequate but not wow.

The software works ok with my Primera label printer on the MAC platform but it’s not “wow".

I downloaded this software because my printer hardware supplier suggested it for MAC users wanting to create labels and print on a Primera Label Printer. They only make this suggestion because they do not produce a MAC driver for Primera printers…I know, shame on them.

As for the rating, it’s the weak Primera printer setup support (which is why I bought the package) that keeps it from being 5 stars for me. Little things like the lack of a wide selection of pre-configured label size setups make it slow going to print from a library of labels created with Adobe Illustrator. So, one ends up having to build custom label definitions for many of the standard off the shelf label sizes used in product labeling. It’s pretty much equivalent to trying to print labels from MS Word with the standard Avery sizes removed.

As a light weight graphics publisher software I think it is probably ok.

Swiftpublisher - Printfolio Package

This is the most delightful and productive software on both my iMac and MacBook Pro. I first started using Printfolio software in 2010. The customer support is excellent, they are quick to respond and constantly update the software with fixes, yet always add amazing improvements that make an already great product better. I am a designer who is accustomed to Indesign and Quark which are industry standards, yet find more joy and ease in using Swiftpublisher as it lends itself to more creative design processing. In fact, most of my freelance work is done in Swiftpublisher. Art Text, Disc Cover and the Business card software are all part of my desktop publishing business routine, making the turnaround fast, easy and compatible with outside printers.

I highly recommend the purchase of Printfolio, Art Text and anything else Belight offers.

Quick and Easy Publishing App!

I used the previous version of Swift Publisher and was well pleased with it. I have several "quick desktop publishing apps” and this one is my favorite when I want to get a project done in a hurry without putting in too much effort. I have one of the “heavy hitter” applications for more complicated projects but Swift Publisher 3 has a lot of keen bells and whistles that can produce nice work very quickly. I like the “in-app purchase” for additional clip art, too. I never have too much clip art! Very nice application and it’s a lot of fun to use.
