Read all about it! Digital scrapbooking news at pixels2Pages.netAn updated version of Forever Artisan 5® was launched this afternoon. This is the first Artisan 5 update since summer 2016!

Artisan 5 version 5.0.6302.18512 is the version that can be downloaded from the Forever downloads page and is the most current version.  HERE is the download link, and HERE is a blog post about the update.

This version has a new Print Guide for photobooks, which is a tool built to improve the overall customer design and print experience. The Print Guide highlights a “safe zone,” which is 1/8 inch in from the targeted trim line on book covers and pages. The safe zone is an industry standard within the design and print manufacturing industry. Any design elements placed within that area are “safe” from being trimmed during the manufacturing process. Although the Print Guide currently applies only to photobooks, the plan is to add similar print guides to all products within Artisan in the near future. We believe this tool will allow you to make sure your books are printed the way you want them to be, without leaving white edges along the sides or cutting off photos or text.  Click HERE for more information about the Print Guide.

In addition to the Print Guide, this version of Artisan also includes many bug fixes that have been requested by our customers. A complete list can be found HERE.

In the coming weeks, we will be adding training on the Print Guide and other features of the update, so stay tuned!  If you have questions in the meantime, feel free to contact us at or contact the Forever support team at

    I cant remember how to DL the updates. I have L clicked, ‘save’ and it goes to my DL file but doesn’t update A5. I have R clicked and it to goes to DL. What am I doing wrong? I know crazy question, it goes to show me that I REALLY need to keep scrapping more so the tools stay fresh in my head. In the meantime however, I am not able to DL the update. 🙁

      You need to download the file and then run it. Double-click on the .exe file after it finished downloading and then follow the on-screen instructions.

    I downloaded from the link provided but just ended up with a same-sized second copy of my original download. The version listed is 5.0.6068 which doesn’t match the number above. I would love some help.
