PageStream is a quality full featured desktop publishing/page layout program that gives you the tools you need to create the designs you desire.

Full color brochures are almost as easy to create as a simple business card. [ Overview ]

A little history...
For over 20 years, we have continuously improved upon and delivered what we and our customers believe is the most innovative and cost-effective page layout program. First sold under the name Publishing Partner for the Atari ST, in 1986 Personal Publishing magazine featured it on the front cover and called it a "knockout program". Later renamed to PageStream, our gem has been released for the Amiga, Macintosh, Windows, and Linux. From the first release to today, PageStream has been the publishing application of choice for tens of thousands of people.

Features you can use today...
Like almost any other professional publishing program, PageStream can be used to set type, draw objects, and place graphics. It has extremely precise typography, professional printing, and a rich assortment of features.

PageStream differs from other page layout programs in that it has most of the drawing features of an illustration program, a powerful selection of unique features, and most importantly, an outstanding interface. Looking for innovation? With each release of our competitors, it is not unusual to find most if not all of the features are already a part of PageStream, and many will have been available in PageStream many years.

The verdict is...
Professionals rely on PageStream for its precise typographic controls, advanced drawing features, stunning color output, and recordable scripts. Beginners love PageStream because its easy-to-learn interface simplifies the creation of newsletters, cards and banners. A low price, frequent free updates, powerful features, and great support.

“[PageStream5.0 Windows] has come a long way since I started using version 1.5 for the Amiga... couldn't live without it....” -- KD

What's next?
We are continually updating our products and a number of features have already been added to PageStream 5.0 in response to feedback from our customers! Feedback from our users will continue to mold this version so don't be afraid to make suggestions!

You may be wondering now, if PageStream is so great, why have I not heard about it before now? If you are new to PageStream, that is certainly a valid question. After all, PageStream has been sold for longer than many folks have owned a computer. That answer is simply a result of our focus. While larger companies like Adobe and Quark choose to spend millions every year on purchasing competitors, paying for outside sales forces, buying product placement with retailers, and investing in ineffective development to compete; we choose to focus on creating the best program we can. Period. Without those outrageous expenses, we can afford to sell to fewer people at a lower price. Word of mouth is the most honest advertising at any price, just not in your face. That is who we are. If you have questions about how PageStream works and if this is a program for you, we encourage you to not only read the documentation available here and take the demo version for a test drive, but join our support group and ask our users. People just like you, who have discovered PageStream for themselves. [ Documentation ] [ Downloads ] [ Group Lists ]

At any price PageStream is a bargain, but PageStream's low price is a steal. Retail price is a fraction of the other DTP applications at only $99, and the PageStream5.0 Professional package is only $149.

PageStream4.1 customers can upgrade to 5.0 for only $40, PageStream4.1 Professional customers can upgrade to 5.0 Professional for only $40, and upgrade multiple copies for even less. Customers of prior versions of PageStream (4.0, 3.x, 2.x and 1.x) can upgrade for just $75. Other discounts exist. Check out our order page for more details on pricing.
