Panstoria is the successor to Creative Memories digital product line. In this role, Panstoria continues to support StoryBook Creator, although it is now renamed Artisan. If you haven’t updated to Artisan, you may want to consider making the change.
Artisan has one feature that is lacking from most competing programs. It allows pages and projects to be saved in standard JPG and PDF formats. Standard file formats allow me to use my page any way that I want, including sharing online and ordering products from any supplier. Standard file formats also ensure that I will always have a digital copy of my pages for future projects, even if Artisan no longer exists.
Even though it is possible to order merchandise from other vendors I find it easier to take the default path and order directly from Panstoria. I have also found that Panstoria listens to my concerns and is actively trying to improve their products.
Recently, I was asked by Panstoria to take a systematic look at their products and suggest possible enhancements that would help them grow their business. This opportunity allows me to directly influence Panstoria’s product line, and I am glad Panstoria values my input. I am looking forward to their future success, and I am also looking forward to continuing this blog. Stay tuned for future updates.
