Only certain files can be uploaded to the forum e.g. screenshot images. Project files tend to be rather large.

I will send you an email (please check the email account you used to register for this forum). Then you can email me back with a project file attached.

... and yes it's a whole new product. So part of this is the time it takes to learn the new. Time is the issue.

Understandable. Anything new requires time to experiment and learn. With Microsoft Publisher or Adobe InDesign, the learning curve is considerably higher.

... created a custom sized paper of business card size 2.5x3 inches and saved it (but you have to create and save it under "signs" because if you save it as a business card stock it no longer gives you the option for "landscape" view.)


This is "technical" terminology for desktop publishing programs (not just Print Shop). Business Card project/templates MEAN 10 cards per sheet to allow people to use the popular Avery business card stock. If your plan is NOT to print onto Avery business card stock, then the Business Card project is probably not the correct template to be using.

It is correct to use the Sign project to create any custom size, single side project. That's what sign means in desktop publishing. If you want something that is replicated into rows and columns, you use a business card or label template REGARDLESS of whether the end use is a business card or label. They could simply be wallet photos or RSVP cards.

... but I can not Copy and Paste my work from one project to another.


While you can use right-click to select copy and paste, my habit is to use Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V - the standard Windows shortcut commands.

The Logo I created on the front of the business card is an upgrade and I'd like to save just that for use in lots of other projects as an art object and also as it's own little project so we can size, update or change later


Yes, this is doable. (For business logos, there are many important considerations such as creating a purely vector graphic. A discussion for another time.)

This is the logo you are referring to?

The Logo I created on the front of the business card ... attaching a screen shot...

Was wondering how the business card might look with your logo in the upper left as in the example on the bottom.
