In dire need of old DOS apps

Hey guys,

I been trying to look for these old PC apps to no avail. Games are easier to find than applications!!

Anyway, the apps in questin are THE PRINT SHOP, BANNeR and PRINT PARTNER. These used to be ten a penny around here but obviously, nobody has kept them :/

I would appreciate some help on this matter!

Akira, I've got loads of stuff on mag cd's, you'll have to give me some time to sift through them all, as they don't display what's on the CD themselves as the mags contained all that info + I have some other CD stuff that was given to me, so I'll check those as well.

Try this site Akira, you need to sign up but there are pages of pages of old stuff

http://vetusware.com/

After creating an account go to this page for Print Shop: http://vetusware.com/os/DOS/?os=1&page=22

This page has BannerMania, not sure if it's the same thing though:

No luck with finding this sadly... Could only find printer drivers

Here's some information about Print Partner:

Quote:
Print Partner

This is a SHAREWARE CLONE OF Broderbund Print Shop, near enough that files will swap I remember, for printing banners, cards, calendars and the likes. Mono only but prints scaled stuff for posters. (six A4 sheets to join to-gether for publicity stuff) GUI is a bit crude, but prints ok.
Maybe you should try "Print Master" which is also made by Broderbund and can be downloaded from the same page I posted above for Print Shop

                                 greeting cars, easy to use.
You can see a description of what the file are in "Shareware Heaven #1" here and "Shareware Heaven #2" here
