More icons for Print Shop
by GREGG PEARLMAN, Antic Asstant Editor
Third-party Print Shop images have been a staple of smaller publishes and public domain ever Since Broderbund brought out their popular page design software. Here are some ambitious icon collections recently examined at Antic. Unless stated otherwise, all disks mentioned below require the basic Print:Shop program disk and at least 48K memory.
No Frills Software currently has 10 Print Shop image disks available for the 8-bit Atari. Three of these disks are budget-priced $6.95 public domain anthologies. Another three-disk series of Fonts and Borders requires 64K memory and Print Shop Companion software. Fonts include Backwards, Doublevision, Rodeo and Orient2. Borders include squares, boxes and three golf-related designs.
No Frills also markets two Davka graphics disks (created by Davka Corp, of Chicago) containing Hebrew letters and Judaic symbols-- over 70 images on each disk. And there's a Christian Scenes and Symbols disk (originated by Donaldson Graphics of Pittsburgh) containing 100 designs that include borders and, naturally, "icon" icons.
The four Print Shop Icon Disks of the Jersey Aari computer society (JACS) are well-known in users group circles. Each disk contains more than 100 icons apiece. Images include Atari computers, Commercial products, cartoon characters, military symbols, a reproduction of Grant Wood's masterpiece, American Gothic, sports-related visuals and scenic pictures.
JACS is currently finalizing a deal to have No Frills release this disk series commercially.
