  • Type the country or city and country you want to use in the search window
  • Click on IMAGES.
  • Drag and drop two images of choice to a new Appleworks Drawing Document which you will save as "Postcard Pictures"
  • Now copy and paste each picture from the Appleworks Drawing Document into the Print Shop Deluxe Companion Postcard you are creating.
  • You must add the following to complete the back of the postcard:
  1. Two pictures which you cut and pasted into your postcard
  2. One sentence about each picture.Type it like your telling a friend about the picture..for ex. "Tomorrow we will be visiting the Great Wall of China"
  3. Now Go to
  4. Now scroll down to the bottom of the page. Find your country and click on it.
  5. Scroll down till you find LOCATION. Type the location exactly as you see it on the webpage but make it sound like you are telling a friend about where you are. ie. "Brazil is in Eastern South America, bordering the Atlantic Ocean."
  6. Now write two more sentences. One sentence should tell the climate and the other sentence should tell the Area Comparative. Both can be found here.
  • Add the following to the FRONT of the Postcard:
  1. Put one text block in the upper left hand corner and type your return address there using regular text, not script font, Size Small
  2. Put one text block in the lower right hand corner and type your friend's name and address in a MEDIUM text. Again, you do not have to use script.
  3. Put a text block in the lower left hand corner and type a minimum of five sentences in script font size Extra Small such as Signature. Tell your friend what a good time your having, when you are coming home, what else you may do while you are there etc.
  4. Add a stamp and a postcript . I will instruct you on how to do this but if you feel adventurous and want to do this by yourself follow these instructions:
  • Using your Tool Box, click in the upper right hand box. There you will find a Square Graphic. Please click on that now.
  • Now Double Click the box.
  • Click on Change Libraries
  • Click on the little arrow for the drop down box and click on Desktop--Macintosh HD--Applications -Mac OS 9--Print Shop Deluxe--Libraries-- and scroll down until you see PSDC Stamps. Click ok. Pick a stamp and put it in the upper right hand corner.
  • NOw Add another Square Graphic. Place it partially over the stamp.
  • Double click the grey square graphic and change libraries just as you did above but this time pick PSDC Postmarks. Pick a postmark and place it over or near the stamp. A postmark is what the Post Office stamps over your stamp to prove it was sent through them.
  • If you wish to slightly rotate your postmark to look more realistic. select your postmark, click on Option in the menu bar, click on Rotate, and change the skew...
SAVE AS POSTCARD in your Documents!

I would like it better if we go on the internet or play games more often. I like how we do the activitys, but I would like this class better if we got to do our own thing every once in awhile. When are we getting our screen names?

I enjoy when we do things with the drawing application and Print Shop. I think that we should be able to get on the internet more often like last year though.
