I am curious, are all the format extensions you have listed here based clipart files or project files? I want to add info all the project samples I have collected from a few versions from the 1990's. --Thorsted (talk) 04:44, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

.nam/.dat/.pnm/.pog are clipart files; I'm not sure the extensions of projects. Dan Tobias (talk) 04:53, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
I'd say this article can be for all Print Shop formats not covered by another article. Whether to make a separate article is always a judgment call. I know there are more (maybe a lot more) Print Shop formats. I'm aware of PSG[1], for example, but haven't gotten to it. --Jsummers (talk) 14:52, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
The Print Shop & PrintMaster have a different extensions for each of the projects, Banners, Letterheads, envelopes, etc. At some point they switched to the OLE2 document format with all new extensions. This article could have a lot of extensions, is there a way to have a separation between support files like clip art and project files?--Thorsted (talk) 15:01, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
I don't know enough to have a strong opinion, but there's nothing wrong with making a new "The Print Shop project" article. We can always change it later. Maybe eventually rename this article, or split off a new "The Print Shop clip art / graphics library" article. --Jsummers (talk) 15:57, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
I am trying to identify the different formats related to The Print Shop software, but finding the software is very complicated. Would it be best to make a new page per software title? The Print Shop Titles or try and group them somehow Most Software versions. At some point the format changed to an OLE2 based format. Might be a big project, let alone linking it with PrintMaster.--Thorsted (talk) 03:23, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
