No need to spend endless hours learning
complex programs like Quark or InDesign.
EZBook includes AUTOFLOW technology
which is not available in other programs. You
can produce a portrait page in seconds!
EZBook tools are simple, but the book you
produce looks fantastic!

EZBook is FREE!
EZBook won't cost you one penny if you
publish with your EZBook yearbook provider.
Quark sells for around $900, and InDesign
sells for around $700. You save a lot of
money just in software alone. EZBook allows
