All You Need for Desktop Publishing

Document Diversity

Document Diversity

This app is loaded. With over 480 templates for flyers, brochures, discs, business cards, labels, calendars, and more. Printworks handles all kinds of page layout and desktop publishing documents, with elegance. Each type of document comes with specific features unique to that project type. Such as iTunes track import for discs, mail merge for labels and envelopes, and Apple Contacts integration for business cards. The app has been tailored to cater to all of your design needs while keeping the workflow seamless and comfortable.

Spline Tool

A Full Design Arsenal

Printworks has all of the design tools you would expect from good desktop publishing software. And much more. It’s not just shape tools, shadows, strokes, and gradients. It’s a built-in photo editor that contains over 80 image filters. With the spline drawing tool you will easily draw out anything you need, whether you can draw by hand or not. Or use one of 2,000 high-quality clipart images to help build the design from scratch. Not enough? Get over 40,000 clipart images and 100 fonts with the Extras Pack.

Text Formating

Desktop Publishing Tools

Typography is what Printworks does best. From flowing text boxes to a custom heading tool that lets you create artsy titles for your projects. Easily create a set of text styles that can be applied to text boxes with just one click of the mouse. No need to edit every piece of text by hand. There are also a few tools for circular text and vertical text for discs and jewel case inserts.

Print at Home or Print Shop

Printing and Export

Print your desktop publishing documents right at home. The app supports hundreds of label and paper layouts from Avery, Memorex, and Neato for disc, label, or business card projects. Or export them to an image format (PDF, PNG, JPEG, TIFF and EPS) and send them over to your local print shop.

What Our Users Say on the Mac App Store

A lot for your money

You get a lot for your money with this app. You can combine several tasks with the same app without having to go back and forth from one app to another. I produce a lot of signs and this app helps me to produce some great looking materials for my clients.


Great software at a great price

After checking out the features, I was quite surprised that it was so reasonably priced. I’ve only been using it for a short time, but it is very intuitive and easy to use. I’ve created three projects from scratch (although they do have some very good templates!) and have been very pleased with the results of each. Printworks allows you to do real desktop publishing easily and inexpensively. I highly recommend it!


Works much like MS Publisher

If you are transitioning from a Windows environment to a MAC OS environment, Printworks is the program for you for your desktop publishing needs. It took me about 20 minutes after I downloaded Printworks from the Apps Store to create a professional looking business card. I was impressed with the ease at which I was able to quickly use my Publisher skills to work with Printworks.
