osx_notes

OS X El Capitan is now available as a Public Beta. We’ve put together a short compatibility overview for you. Here’s a small summary of our experiences so far.

  • Mail Designer: To send or not to send, that is the question. Don’t worry with the latest El Capitan beta, Mail Designer 2 and Mail Designer Pro should work fine. More details here
  • Spot Maps: Keep a clear overview of your networks. Spot Maps works seamlessly with El Capitan.
  • CoverScout & SongGenie: Bring some color to your music library. In our early tests, both CoverScout and SongGenie worked without issue with El Capitan and the latest version of iTunes.
  • Greeting Cards: Happy belated Birthday! Greeting Cards should work with the very latest El Capitan beta, however, since the Apple Mail app still seems to be changing quite a bit, we recommend holding off until the final version of El Capitan ships.
  • iSale: Sell on eBay. iSale also supports El Capitan.
  • tizi for Mac, TV for Mac and MediaCentral: Get your popcorn ready! Both tizi apps and MediaCentral will shine El Capitan.
  • The Tube: Upgrade for more TV enjoyment. If you’re using The Tube, we recommend you upgrade to tizi for Mac for El Capitan — not only will you be fully compatible with Apple’s latest OS, you’ll also get to enjoy new features like visual timeshift, recording, editing, and share features.

Your newest business venture

By | Stationery Pack | No Comments

Have you thought about using Stationery Pack for your business but wanted a little more customization? Our newly announced Stationery Pack Business Edition might just be what you were looking for.

Over time we have had numerous requests from small business owners, ranging from updated template designs to new features. Whereas we have often offered smaller, themed collections in addition to our more general bumper packs, it was clear to see Business Edition was no small undertaking.

The concept of Business Edition became clear: not to produce specific, single-use templates, but instead allow business customers to use the stationery in a way that suits them.

For example, instead of labeling templates by occupation (architect, designer, etc.), we’ve taken the names of famous places around the word. Looking for a traditional, authoritative board room feel? Look for Boston or Cambridge. Something light and breezy? Stockholm or Miami. A design with texture? San Francisco or Hong Kong.

We’ve made Business Edition such that no matter which design you choose, there’s a business use case behind it too. The Directions template offers room for a map, Invoice features confidential and urgent stamps, and Business Card lets you drag in a portrait photo for sharing contacts.

Photo drop zones are always a popular part of any Stationery collection we offer. For that reason the Offers templates include good-sized placeholders in both portrait and landscape. Portfolio includes up to six photo placeholders, whilst Newsletter features a photo area that spans the entire width of the template.

Especially for Business Edition users, each new template has a placeholder for a company logo, pre-defined legal disclaimer and contact info. Many also include a drop zone for a signature. Each of these is designed to add an extra touch of authenticity to your business emails.

It may be the case that your logo, photo or signature doesn’t automatically fit the layout. No problem. We’ve built-in a really simple tool. Drop any image into our Image Perfect tool and it will automatically create images that will work in any of the placeholders.

With 12 original designs, each featuring 17 layouts, the new Business Edition has over 200 new templates to use. Once you have added your own photos, you have an infinite number of possibilities when sending emails to customers, colleagues and contacts.

Send smiles all around with Birthday Cards

By | Company, Stationery Pack | No Comments

Emails are great for sending birthday wishes. Being able to add your own photos creates a nice personal touch. Friendly greetings are fine too, but if you want show friends and family a little something extra, drag in a photo, share an inside joke and send smiles all around.

The new Birthday Cards collection adds 32 new birthday-themed designs to your Mail stationery. Great for poking fun at friends, you can drag their picture onto the face of an old man or lady. For a more traditional theme, send a cake or balloon greeting to a co-worker in the office.

Like all our other Stationery Pack collections, just choose your design and it’ll load right up in Mail. Add your personalized greeting and send them just like any other email. It’s a quick and easy option for sending birthday cards again and again.
