Printer’s Apprentice has been on every machine I’ve owned since Windows 3.1. Now, after 11 years on a Vista machine, I’m in the process of migrating to a new Windows 10 machine. Among the first applications installed was Printer’s Apprentice. Now, it feels more like my machine, and not so unfamiliar. PA is like an old friend. And as I “move in” to a new machine, I thought I’d take a moment to thank you for such a solid, reliable, and very useful application.”
I am a web and graphic designer, and I work with fonts regularly. I tried most of the freeware font managers, but eventually needed to move up. Printer's Apprentice hits the spot! It's got the features I need and is easy to use. I especially value the "Font Groups" feature, which lets me organise my uninstalled fonts in the way I want in folders on my hard drive, then browse and install them from Printer's Apprentice. Printer's Apprentice also has three other things I like: it's made by an indie developer, it's regularly upgraded, and the price is fantastic. It's one of my must-haves and I would recommend it without hesitation to any graphic or web designer.”

“Printer’s Apprentice has been on every machine I’ve owned since Windows 3.1... Printer's Apprentice is like an old friend. ” - Tom M., May 2018

“Your program is absolutely the best, and believe me, through the years, I have looked at all of them!” - Charlotte M., June 2017

“Can I congratulate you on an excellent program - it seems to do all that I want to do and more to get to grips with the 1,200 fonts I seem to have acquired over the years. ...I'd tried several other font managing programs finding them all lacking in some way or another...”
Thanks again!- Howard D., May 2017
