The Print Shop was desktop publishing software made by Brøderbund in the early 1980s. If you went to school during that period, you may have seen it used to make posters and more likely banners on the school’s dot matrix printer. I remember my teacher taking great pains to keep together a tattered old banner that had obviously been printed many years earlier. She hung that thing during every birthday party in her class and eventually it was more tape than paper.
Here you see a lucky student playing around with the Print Shop on a handsome looking Apple computer. Perhaps working on a “Happy Birthday” banner of his own?
