Printing Press

Printing Press

Printing Press  is a handy site that helps you publish three types of documents - a poster, a brochure or a newspaper.  It is easy to use but its real power comes in the fact that you can save incomplete work!  The site lets a user save in a proprietary .RWT format on a usb stick or saved to a network space.  When you next begin, that same file can be opened so it can be completed and shared as a .PDF.
