Invitation Architect 3.0 Software Tour

Invitation Architect 3.0

With our new Invitation Architect 3.0 software, eco-conscious retailers can now offer "green" proofing services. Virtual, tree-free proofs using any color scheme save money (and trees!), reduce the carbon footprint, and avoid the need to order, ship and assemble traditional paper proofs. Quick and easy to use, the software includes stationery colors, shapes, sizes and patterns, including pockets, pochettes, envelope liners, even StationeryStamps™. Add graphics files of the invitation text and email customer graphical proofs.

Templates for all Mountaincow Monthly Newsletter projects, Carlson Craft DIY & Pockets®, and AccuCut Pinnovation® stationery dies are built in. Hundreds of Envelopments® recipes are available for Envelopments dealers to download from the Envelopments dealer access website.

The following pages will introduce you to the software and show you the basics in Invitation Architect 3.0.
