You can quickly create new projects based on one of the hundreds of Mountaincow sample stationery and personalized gift designs that are included with the software. To create a project based on a sample project, choose New Project in the File menu and click on Create a new project based on a sample project folder in the Open Project window. Select a project and click on the OK button to create a new copy of the project. When you create a project based on a sample, it creates a new project with all the stationery in the sample and an empty Mailing List.

A powerful tool is the Duplicate Project feature, which enables you to make a clean copy of the stationery and Mailing List for a project when you want to repeat the effort and send out a similar mailing. To duplicate a project, choose Duplicate Project in the File menu:

Duplicate Project

For example, you have already design a holiday card project for one of your customers and printed addressed envelopes to send them to to their friends and family. When the following holiday season rolls around, you can duplicate the project from the previous year and update the project name for the current year. Then all you need to do is add new text and a new family photo to the card, and print.

PrintingPress Pro Extreme feature also lets you duplicate individual pieces of stationery from one project into another. Just view the stationery you wish to copy and choose Copy Stationery to Project in the Stationery menu.

Copy Stationery to Project

Hold down the Control key and click as many items as you would like to copy in the stationery list. Then choose the project in the list on the right into which you want to copy the stationery. If you'd like to create a new project, check Create new project and specify a name for the new project in the Name field.

Another powerful tool is the Export Project feature. This allows you to share projects with other PrintingPress Extreme users, send projects to another computer for printing or save a backup of your important projects.
