By Gary Amirault
We, at Tentmaker Ministries and Publications use a lot of software. One of the best software programs for the money that we think is a wonderful product especially for Christians who do a lot of reading and who like to pass on information in a presentable form is Clickbook 5.0 by Blue Squirrel.
Their brief feature write up reads:
ClickBook, a powerful yet easy-to-use printing utility, lets you print customized day planner pages, wallet booklets, brochures, greeting cards, catalogs, microfiche, and more from Internet, Windows, or CD-Rom files! ClickBook, helps you scale, rotate, and duplex your digital photos, favorite on-line content, or other critical information into 40+ mobile and convenient layouts. You can even design your own custom layouts and save up to 70% in paper costs!
While it does all of the above, the feature we, at Tentmaker, value the most is the ability to take any documents and turn them into convenient to read booklets. One can take articles off the internet, add some from their own computer bring them together and create booklet printed on both sides of the paper even without a duplex printer. By purchasing a booklet stapler, available at any office supply store from about $25 to $35 dollars (Blue Squirrel has a couple on their web site), one can easily make professional looking booklets with page numbers, headers, footers, etc. Because one can print front and back and reduce font size, it saves a LOT of paper and it really is MUCH more convenient reading downloaded information in a booklet form than in normal page form.
For those of you who are evangelistic in nature, this product makes creating tracts like a three-fold a breeze. It should be a real saving for those of you who spend a lot of money at the copy shop.
For $49.95, this product is a real winner for those of you who like to read from paper rather than on screen and who like to pass the information on. I highly encourage especially Christians to have this product on their computer. You'll find evangelizing and sharing the Good News must easier with this product in hand. Tentmaker rates this product a winner. One can download a free demo at their web site. Get your copy today at: Blue Squirrel http://www.bluesquirrel.com
