Default How to open .tsh files

Hello,

I'm new and I found my way here looking for a way to open some old .tsh files that I have. I created these a long time ago with a t-shirt making software that I no longer have. I tried many different programs including printshop based on some old postings in this forum, but nothing has worked so far. I would really appreciate if someone can help me open these files. Thanks.

Tell us the name of the program. Maybe someone here still uses it.

Default Re: How to open .tsh files

it is from broderbund printmaster

try changing the file extension .tsh to .svg and open it in a vector editor and see what happens
if it does not work and you really need these files then see if you can buy an old copy of printmaster or maybe print shop on amazon

as an aside,
this is a good example of why people need to have all their graphic files saved in non-proprietary file formats (svg/pdf/eps/png/etc.)

Thanks for the inputs. Could have been made with something called t-shirt maker but I'm not sure. I agree I screwed up not converting them into some standard formats. I've printshop but it didn't open the files, haven't tried printmaster. I'll try changing the file extension and try again. Could you please explain a bit more about what you mean by opening it in a vector editor? Thanks.

Make a backup copy of the file first. Then change the extension as Edward suggests and try to open (or import) it into whatever vector program you have; Illustrator, Coreldraw, Affinity, etc. If you have none, download the free open source Inkscape and try it there.

nova development did have 't-shirt factory deluxe', maybe that is what you had

what type of designs are these?

can you try opening in your text editor and then posting the results?

Opened it with a text editor and it indeed seems like a t-shirt factory deluxe file. I tried opening it with inkscape after changing the file extension but it didn't open. It seems I've to get hold of this t-shirt factory deluxe, checked ebay but nothing there. Google search comes up with some download sites but not sure how safe these sites are.

yeah, i was hesitant to post any of those download sites (you are just begging for a compromised machine)

nova is still in business, see if you can get a free trial out of them
mention that you used the older version years ago and really liked it, but are unsure about the new version

if they don't bite, thank them and ask if there is a way to open all your old .tsh files

Perhaps Nova has sold a cooperative license to a current software vendor that can handle their legacy formats. I would just ask them.
