This does sound terrific!

I invariably DTP something up as I unfortunately often use non-standard sizes so print to A3 (what we have at work) and slice up on the guillotine (but that's probably not on your feature list...)

Yes, my ambitions are a bit lower, although I am still considering enabling custom card layouts. But that's for people who are happy sharing the general layout with others. Unique cards will always need more work.

Love it  Kiss
Great NANY submission.

Was going to suggest drag+drop support but just watched the video and I see it's already implemented.

Only thing that might be nice is a printing function, though i suspect anyway who would want to print it on a nice color inkjet already has a program to print images so it's not really needed.
