These days most folks read written material using electronic devices. Gone are the days where you hold a physical copy of the written word. For some, however, the feel of paper in one’s hand is necessary to fully appreciate and absorb the words that span across a page. Swiping away on a screen and trying to decipher print that is small just doesn’t cut it.
While many still need hard copy print for several purposes, such as for marketing or maintaining business contacts, print is a necessity. And while you will still use some electronic device to create your magical masterpiece, you still need a way to make it print in just the right format you need to organize your content correctly and most productively.
This can range from a Z fold pamphlet to a multi-page booklet. Whatever the case may be, you have a friend in Create Booklet.
Most producers of printed booklets rely on the ease of use and power of Mac computers. Create Booklet has been designed to work seamlessly with Macs, making every product you create easy to design and bring to fruition.
What is really neat about this app is that even if you don’t have a duplex printer, it will allow for you to produce printed materials with content on both side in an easy way.
Costing just $9.99, it is a small investment that will save you a great deal of money over the long run. Just imagine how often you use printers and how much they cost. With this app, you have control over your printed product and can tweak it as you wish, multiple time if needed, before you print.
You can even try to print one copy, review it and then make your necessary edits. This is not something easily done by a print shop.
Easy to download, it becomes a part of your Print Panel on the Mac. So, when you are ready to print your booklet, you use the app to configure to your liking and then print.
Small features of the app, that go a long way, include:
- Addition of empty pages, images, and complete PDF’s
- Reording of pages
- Removal of unneeded pages
- Save to PDF
- Instant printing from Create Booklet
- PDF fine adjusting and layout design
- Auto-rotation for landscape pages
- Split large booklets into smaller ones, and easily find each section in order
And there is more…
Overall, I found Create Booklet to be extremely easy to use. Most of the functions were straightforward and uncomplicated. You also save lots of paper, too, which means increased cost savings.
The only one small item I would like to see is the ability to use it from my iPad, and I am sure that a mini version of it may be in the works. I anxiously look forward to any such additions.
Until then, I will take advantage of this app to best of my ability. I love using this to produce all sorts of written content, both for my business and for small community projects I help with on the side.
