Publisher Pro Debuts Today with an Affordable Suggested

Retail Price of $99.95

Nova Development, a top-five publisher of imaging and graphics software, today announced the retail release of its first entry into the mid-range desktop publishing category, Art Explosion(R) Publisher Pro(TM). The fastest, easiest way to create documents with impact, Art Explosion Publisher Pro delivers power, versatility, and ease-of-use at an affordable price.

From single-page flyers to stunning multi-page brochures and newsletters, Art Explosion Publisher Pro provides powerful tools and ready-made templates that small businesses, home users, and educators need to turn out spectacular publications.

Art Explosion Publisher Pro delivers an all-in-one, comprehensive publishing solution for small businesses and consumers, allowing users to print to their own inkjet printers or to generate printer-ready PDF (Portable Document Format) files for professional output.

"Art Explosion Publisher Pro desktop publishing software puts an unprecedented number of innovative text, graphics and page layout features at the fingertips of a substantially broader group of computer users," said Roger Bloxberg, CEO of Nova Development Corp. "When considered in combination with its unrivaled included library of rich, professionally-designed layouts, Art Explosion Publisher Pro is one of the most significant innovations in the desktop publishing space to come along in years."

Thousands of Publication Templates

Art Explosion Publisher Pro lets users choose from more than 2,500 ready-made publication templates in every conceivable category, including brochures, newsletters, flyers, business cards, matching stationery, greeting cards, labels, calendars, business forms, advertisements, and more. Users can also create publications from scratch with complete control over placement of text and graphics.

100,000+ Sensational Graphics

Only Art Explosion Publisher Pro gives users a creative edge with Art Explosion graphics, featuring a complete collection of vector illustrations, fine art, photographs and more. And unlike some other desktop publishing software products, all the graphics are included in the box with no downloading required.

Works the Way Users Do

Art Explosion Publisher Pro features a powerful built-in word processor and graphics editor so users never have to leave the program to create a complete publication. It also gives users the option of importing content they've created from the applications they use every day.

Many conventional publishing programs can handle page layout tasks but leave users to do most of the graphics work in separate, often expensive programs. In contrast, Art Explosion Publisher Pro is built on a sophisticated graphics engine that allows users to create stunning documents faster than ever. It even features full support for gradients and transparency. Users can also add striking shadows, glows and bevels to any graphic and can choose from an extensive studio gallery of picture-based effects, ranging from marble to mahogany. "3D has never been this easy!" Bloxberg added.

Make Use of Outstanding Professional Layout Tools

Art Explosion Publisher Pro includes movable rulers and guides, a customizable grid system, precision placement, rotation and flipping, graphics cropping and much more. It even lets users add watermarks to their documents.

High-End Professional Printing Options

With Art Explosion Publisher Pro users can step up to the worldwide standard for cross-platform file delivery with Art Explosion Publisher Pro's innovative output engine to create PDF files. Users can easily create a PDF file that mirrors their Art Explosion Publisher Pro publications -- all in one complete package. Art Explosion Publisher Pro also offers sophisticated four-color (CMYK) separation and PANTONE(R) color support that are typically found only in far more expensive desktop publishing solutions.

Spectacular Web Graphics and Animation

Art Explosion Publisher Pro not only lets users easily optimize images for the Web; it also provides all of the tools needed to create a complete website with professionally designed templates and an easy-to-use Web Page Wizard. Users can slice images and create image maps and even turn images into frame-by-frame animations with 16 instant animation effects.


Art Explosion Publisher Pro's Image Editor offers award-winning power that is truly easy to use, from its image cleanup features and outstanding painting tools to its innovative filter effects. "The included Image Editor is the easy way to enhance photos and images -- and make publications come alive," Bloxberg said.

Pricing and Availability: Art Explosion Publisher Pro is available now at computer, software specialty, consumer electronics and office supply stores nationwide for an anticipated street price of $99.95.

System Requirements: Art Explosion Publisher Pro can be used with any PC running Windows 95, 98, 2000, Me or XP with a Pentium II-compatible processor or faster, 64 MB RAM and a CD-ROM Drive. It is compatible with all printers.
