About MeGeneral ·
My name is Shane. As an amateur board game designer, I found that there was a lack of a simple program to both organize your cards in a database and lay them out for printing. I first tried using InDesign, but it requires studying hours of tutorials in order to master. I tried FileMaker, but it didn’t have the kind of layout tools I was looking for. Microsoft Word and PowerPoint have easy drag-and-drop layout tools, but they aren’t very good for organizing your cards.
In order to solve this problem, I decided to write my own program that did what I needed for game design. I wanted a program that let me organize my cards so that I could edit them in a spreadsheet. I wanted a program that gave me powerful tools for creating my own layout templates. I wanted a program that let me generate print layouts hassle-free. This is how I started working on Card Creatr Studio. I’m glad to share the first version of my program today.
I am currently working in Mountain View, California. You can often find me around at local board game meetups.
