In order to create stunning projects, you need stunning artwork. Greeting Card Shop won't let you down. Here's why:

  • A $554 Value. The artwork was created by artists from all over the world and is it not the "cheesey" variety of clipart normally included with software products. The artwork is valued at $554 if purchased directly from the iScrapbook Store where it mostly comes from.
  • 7.6+ GB in Size. The artwork collection is over 7.6 GB in size (enough to fill 2 DVDs) which is why it's available as a separate download.
  • 5,100+ Graphics. The collection includes 145 kits (called "iScrapKits") containing over 5,100 graphics.
  • High-Resolution. All of the artwork has a resolution of 300 dpi which is ideal for printing.

Note: there is some duplication of artwork kits with other Chronos products (Business Card Shop, iScrapbook, Labelist, & PrintLife). See Greeting Card Shop Kits for a complete listing.


Templates: Start with a template or create your own design.
Greeting Card Shop comes with 613 greeting card templates, 93 invitation templates, 94 envelope templates, and 16 photo card templates. Feel free to explore your inner artist and customize however you wish! The templates are also available in metric sizes.
