"Excellent tool for making informative brochures"

What do you like best?

What I like most about this tool is that it allows me to make my informative brochures about the new products that we are going to offer to our clients and I can send them via email to all my clients. In addition, it has predetermined models to elaborate my brochures in a way faster.

What do you dislike?

The least I like is that the default models are scarce and a little out of the way for my taste, should be updated more often, however, until now this tool has covered all my needs in terms of functionality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this tool to all people who want to make brochures in a very quick and easy way and in this way save a little time in their day-to-day tasks. Excellent tool very productive and effective.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool has helped me a lot to reduce the time of elaboration of my informative brochures since it is easy to use and the predetermined models are adjusted to what I needed at the time of sending them.

"this program is certainly very good."

What do you like best?

I have used it for many years and although it was designed for beginner users I do not stop using it, because of its versatility, with this program I can create all kinds of documents, with excellent quality and in less time, since their templates do everything else easy and fast, I can also create blank documents without using the templates.

What do you dislike?

It is a program that adapts to the needs of its users, since there are numerous all the templates that it has, one for each occasion I consider that it has nothing negative, in spite of not having a help guide to the user, according to I do not need my opinion, because its operation is very simple.

publisher has everything done, I have no recommendation, it is very easy to use, by choosing the document you want to just change the data and ready, everything is completed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I highly recommend to all people who use publisher both in their work and in their personal lives as it is very easy to use even by the most beginners in design or use of this type of programs, it has nothing to envy to other editing software of publications and even this application has a design verifier that corrects the errors you may have before the final version, plus the possibility of mixing colors, designs and images is infinite and you can save your file in a compatible format.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With publisher I have had many benefits in the company where I work, because with it solved problems such as the delivery of recognition and credentials to my colleagues, I have prepared brochures for my students to read and study in a summarized and didactic way, I have even made the programs and cards of invitations for graduation and cultural events that take place in my educational company.

"the best program to create your company's advertising"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Publisher allows me to promote my company or give advertising contact with my clients and get new ones, and build a solid and professional business identity. It is a very easy program to learn to manage, and with which we can achieve a professional publicity, mailings or publication on the Internet, and everything from the familiar environment of Office. Simply use Word, Microsoft PowerPoint or other Office programs beforehand so that users quickly learn to manage and publish an appropriate Office tool for each task. In addition, customizable features (added in 2002), Publisher 2003 includes menu options identical to those in Word, such as The New Paragraph Format or Numbering and Bullets.

What do you dislike?

I have no complaints whatsoever, only that I would like to update more than the templates and have a mobile or online version.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Publisher offers the necessary tools to create communication materials or advertising. You can create materials for printing, e-mailing, and using the Web with the same known user interface as other Microsoft Office System programs.

"publisher is very good application."

What do you like best?

publisher has helped me to make all kinds of documents, thanks to their templates the work is now easier, I am not so good for the computation, but with this tool everything has been easier, I like that there is a template for every single occasion I change the data and you're done.

What do you dislike?

I consider that the negative aspect of this microsoft application is that it does not present new improvements, every year there is an updated version of office, but I do not see anything new in publisher, buy a new package to always have the same service, I think They should attach more attractive things to them and improve their presentation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this application I have had the benefit of making my presentation cards, and all kinds of documents to promote my work as an artisan, and thus increase my clientele, thanks to the banners and brochures that I show with all the photographs of the work I do.

"I LOVE Publisher"

What do you like best?

This product is easy to use, cost efficient, has helpful wizards and has hundreds of templates. The drag and drop and mail merge features make it one of my favorite software products. There is so much help and support for this product I can't believe it's not the go too choice for more people. Publishing like a pro in no time and you don't have to tell them your secret.

What do you dislike?

I would really like the ability to white out or erase small part of an image, usually i have to go to some image editing software to accomplish what i am looking for. It would be great if it was all self contained. If the graphic design tools were improved I would not use anything else. I would love to see a few more fonts but ther is a lot of places you can easily find free fonts to add if you need it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are paying for a stand alone marketing product and find it challenging at all you should switch to Publisher asap.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So many times i wanted to create a quick business card or pamphlet and had to use awkward word or something else that often I would just pay someone else to figure it out. Now I use this program to help create awesome flyers, wedding guides, menu's, and countless other items for myself and my family members for all sorts of events and business needs.

" Microsoft Publisher is the best program"

What do you like best?

It is an excellent program easy to use in which you can make your presentation cards or any task you need in a very simple and fast way, it is enough to have used Word, Microsoft PowerPoint or other Office programs before so that users can quickly learn to manage with Publisher and use the appropriate Office tool for each task, in the company where I work we have saved a lot of time and money apart that our presentation cards look very simple but at the same time elegant and profeccional. Because this program allows you to add everything you need to create something according to your needs.

What do you dislike?

Unlike other desktop publishing programs, Publisher offers only home-type publications that, although they are professional in appearance, are not, because the ease with which the user works with this software prevents it from being reflected on the sheet in any way. wants to design, the templates clearly pre designed are of a perhaps classic taste, this is occasionally not so useful because it prevents the user to give his personal touch.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft publisher offers a new experience which provides dynamic previews so you can easily create and apply your brand elements to all Office Publisher templates. First, create the identity of the brand with color schemes and combinations of custom fonts, the logo and business information. Then apply the brand with a single click through a very complete library of custom design templates or blank publications, including newsletter, brochure, postcard, website and email formats.

"The best way if you want your printing work fast and easy"

What do you like best?

I like the many templates avaible in Microsoft Publisher. Thanks to them I've a solution for every occasion. The interface is really simple, so it's not complicated as the classical designing software, and you can create your document to print in some minutes. If the template suits perfectly your needs, you only need to imput your infos and nothing more, so you can directly send the doc to the printer. Also great for documents (proposal or insights studies) that we send attached to an email.

What do you dislike?

Would be great if Microsoft Publisher could offer professional option with the images editing, or at least a sort of integration. But you have to modify the image in another software and then get it in Publisher.

Nothing more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a fast result with less time, less efforts and a professional look you have to use it. We saved money and time with it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Myself and my team use Microsoft Publisher quite a lot. It happens that we have a meeting or a conference and we need brochures or invitation. We also use it a lot for flyers. It's the best option since help us to get our material in the minor time possible, with little efforts and with a pro result.

"Publisher 365 "

What do you like best?

What I liked best about Publisher on my O365 subscription is that it is FREE with my subscription. It has the similar interface as most of the Microsoft office suite programs and that making pages is as easy as modifying a Word file.

What do you dislike?

The thing I don't like about the software is that it looks OLD and there are not as many templates or even tutorials on the software and it seems Microsoft is not so keen in keeping up with other Desktop publishing software available on the Market. I do believe Microsoft should keep on developing this potential disruptor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Publisher is a default program MS Home users are FREE to use and download on their Windows machines. Unfortunately it is not available on the Mac. Also there is no mobile app for this software. However, what lacks in features, Microsoft compensates for its very user friendly interface and ease of use (learning curve)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Businesses who are already subscribed to the Cloud MS Office suite should closely consider using Publisher as their desktop publishing software.

"Ease of use with an Old Friend"

What do you like best?

Publisher has been around for decades and hasn't changed much, other than to improve usability. Publisher is perfect for creating all types of marketing products such as business cards, flyers, postcards, and so much more! The options that Publisher offers are countless and one could make everything they ever needed for their business right here in our good ol' friend, Publisher.

What do you dislike?

Publisher does seem outdated with all the fancy new things available to create marketing items with. However, never underestimate an old friend. Publisher is reliable and easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be amazed at the ease of use of Publisher. Create all your marketing documents (and more) within the same program. Click on each option and see what you can create!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All marketing products can be created in the same program. It makes things streamlined and consistent. It makes it easy to find what one is looking for and use the same fonts and options throughout the marketing material. This creates professional consistency.

"Microsoft Publisher is simple and fast"

What do you like best?

I like Microsoft Publisher because it has a large catalog of templates designed according to the user's needs. Some templates are available with the software and others can be downloaded. It can be menus, brochures, postcards, flyers, even cards for all kinds of occasions. The designs are simple and professional. It is a quick solution, according to any situation. It is very easy to use, does not require special knowledge of graphic design or training for the end user.

What do you dislike?

I think Microsoft Publisher should innovate with new designs according to the new trends in graphic design. It should offer new color combinations and new fonts of letters. For the rest, I consider that there are no other aspects to change.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Microsoft Publisher to make brochures, offer publications, flyers, quickly and professionally. It has many templates that we can use easily. Also if we need to do the curriculum summary, Microsoft Publisher is perfect. It is a simple, versatile and easy to use tool that can not be missed in the office.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Constantly in the company it is required to make publications to send new offers of our services to the clients. It is necessary to be creative and flashy. And even more the content posted on social networks. One of the simplest, fastest and most elegant ways is to use the Microsoft Publisher templates. We save time in making our own designs for which we would use complicated and expensive software.

One of the weak points that Publisher has that offers publications that can be considered only of home type and although they are of professional aspect they are often considered as such, because the ease with which the user works this software, prevents in some way that This shows on the sheet what you really want to design, the clearly pre-designed templates are of perhaps classic taste, this is occasionally not so useful because it prevents the user from giving his personal touch and can not be compared with the result of the work of an expert in graphic design that uses programs of a more specialized type, but in spite of this it offers quite satisfactory results to be a program that could be called simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Publisher is a very simple management application that has tools such as predesigned templates, or downloadable templates that can be obtained for free on the web, which gives it an indispensable character for organizations today.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Publisher allows the design of brochures, newsletters, and other advertising content that can be printed later or used directly on the web, by the company. Thanks to its easy-to-use tools and its ease of use, it can be used both by professional designers and by people who do not have a very large specialization in graphic design, since their templates and tools greatly facilitate their use, and allows you to solve a number of problems in terms of graphic design and advertising quickly and effectively.

"Publisher, un programa muy completo y sencillo"

What do you like best?

Publisher va incluido en el paquete office, al ser de Microsoft se conjunta muy bien con el resto de programas del paquete. Lo mejor de Publisher es la sencillez que tiene, tiene un montón de plantillas predefinidas con las que en unos cuantos pasos tienes hecho un diseño,a diferencia de muchos de sus competidores, Publisher se conecta a plantillas en línea de Microsoft Office, las cuales se actualizan regularmente y presentan grandes diseños. Lo bueno es que gente sin ningún conocimiento en diseño gráfico puede hacer un diseño que pase por el de un profesional. Las plantillas que tiene son muy editables respecto a colores. Tiene excelentes herramientas para maquetación y una gran variedad de tipografías.

What do you dislike?

Lo que no me gusta son las limitaciones que tiene, para ciertas cosas hay que recurrir a otros programas más potentes. Que sea tan sencillo te hace echar en falta ciertas herramientas. No te permite importar archivos de PSD de Photoshop o PDF.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si no te quieres complicar la vida para hacer un diseño básico a base plantillas este es tu programa.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En mi trabajo alguna vez nos encargan diseño de tripticos, invitaciones, folletos, pancartas, etc. Lo normal es que recurramos a Photoshop, pero si tenemos poco tiempo tiramos de Publisher que en un momento con las plantillas predefinidas que tiene es muy sencillo hacer este tipo de cosas.

"Microsoft publisher powerful tool and easy to use"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Publisher helps me create outstanding graphics with powerful but easy to learn tools. The integral features can be accessed through a simple interface.

You have options for bulk or batch actions to reduce the time spent on self-publishing tasks. Images can also be exchanged and enhanced using a variety of special effects.

Since Publisher is offered in the Microsoft Office Professional package, it integrates seamlessly with other applications of the IT giant.

Images can be imported and exchanged from one side to another by a simple drag and drop motion, which means that one can experiment with different images without having to take too much time. Photos from Facebook and Flickr albums can also be copied directly to a Publisher file using a quick integrated search. With the program's built-in advanced effects for texts, photos and shapes, even novice users can generate professional-looking designs.

I do not need to worry about saving and sharing files. The documents of the editor are automatically saved in the cloud. Teams can also collaborate on multiple files easily with simple attributes to share.

Also with Publisher, pages can be saved in common image formats, such as JPEG. This means that publications or photo albums can be printed much faster compared to the types of complicated files that can only be opened and printed with limited programs.

What do you dislike?

I have more than 5 years using this great tool that is publisher and until now I have no complaints about its operation, it is excellent, easy and fulfills its function.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to design any type of brochure or document, this tool is easy to use, even for those who have no experience. You can save documents such as JPEG, PDF or other versions and then print or publish online. I have used Publisher for years and I am happy with my experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Publisher is ideal for work because I can create newsletters, office posters, depression cards, postcards along with a lot of other useful projects. There are many templates that give you project ready to use.

" Microsoft Publisher: The ideal program for executives without much knowledge about graphic design."

What do you like best?

I can highlight many positive things about Microsoft Publisher, one of them is undoubtedly its simple and quite intuitive interface, it really is a program that does not have to envy any aspect of more advanced graphic design programs, the simple design of its interface allows even people who do not have solid knowledge about the subject of graphic design to develop a large number of high level publications such as business cards, calendars, brochures, diplomas, newsletters, resumes, posters, fact sheets, letterheads, envelopes, business forms, invitations, catalogs, brochures, calendars up to advertisements in general.

Microsoft Publisher has a series of tools that are very easy to use and it is characterized by being very intuitive allowing any professional or employee who does not have a great specialization in graphic design to develop exceptional works, one of the things that are worth highlighting of the program is its large number of templates designed by default bread basket that greatly facilitate the work.

What do you dislike?

Microsoft Publisher is not a program that has many disadvantages but among these we find that the publications designed with the program are often considered to be home-made and unprofessional, although these may seem professional in appearance they are very often not considered as such, because the ease with which any type of user works with this software makes it a target of contempt on the part of professional designers, in addition to the fact that the predesigned templates are of a simple type and not very impacting, aspect that prevents the user from being able to give a touch say staff preventing comparisons with the result of the work of a graphic design expert who uses a more professional type programs, but despite all this is a program that offers very satisfactory results although some call it "simple".

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft Publisher is a program that I recommend with closed eyes to professionals of all branches not only as an entry program in the field of graphic design, but as an important ally that allows to produce high level publications easily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can attest that thanks to Microsoft Publisher I have solved a lot of inconveniences in my work, thanks to the program I have been able to elaborate from brochures, newsletters, letters, business cards and other advertising contents to use at the moment or store to be used later.

Thanks to its simple interface, it can be used both by professional designers and by people who do not have a solid knowledge in graphic design as it is my case, without a doubt its predesigned templates and other tools greatly facilitate the work I do and I they allow the development of high-level publications and works.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it has been a bit annoying to have so few templates to do my work, and the colors of these in many cases I do not like them and I have to edit them and that takes time to finish with my goals, in such a I would recommend the constant update of the templates since in this way I would save a lot of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is ideal to make informative material about a topic of particular interest or for our organization, in an easy and very simple way we can obtain it using this tool that has a very nice and complete options menu.

"Design and create publications in a simple, fast and professional way"

What do you like best?

This program is very useful when we want to design cards, diplomas, triptychs, leaflets, curricula, calendars, envelopes, newsletters, invitations, bookmarks and many other documents. I like it because it is simple and easy to use, it does not require deep knowledge to use it, so creating a presentation in Publisher can be a quick and satisfying experience for any user with basic knowledge of office. Personally I use it and I recommend it to my students. I also like the default design templates and others that can be downloaded online, although it can be used comfortably without an internet connection. Because it is a Microsoft program, the menu options are similar to those of Word, which provides a comfortable working environment. Another positive aspect is that the presentations can be saved in PDF format, which protects their edition and provides better print quality. In my professional and personal practice I find an economic and functional program.

What do you dislike?

It is a basic design program, although it allows to create presentations with professional appearance, it is not specialized graphic design. The templates are classic and does not allow creating effects such as those that can be done with Photoshop.However, it is a quite accepted and useful software for those who want quick and simple publications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to design cards, newsletters, invitations, diplomas and advertising with the use of your own resources and knowledge, I invite you to try Microsoft Publisher, it is a support tool where you can create all these presentations in record time and with professional quality.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This program is of great benefit, especially for people who are not graphic design professionals, since their predetermined templates make it much easier to use. My students love it and we have used it to develop different educational activities. From my academic coordination, we use it to make simple publicity of scientific events, invitations, business cards, diplomas, certificates, and other documents of interest, which turns into savings of time, money and better use of available resources. It is an economical and functional option for institutions that have a low budget.

The best thing about this program is its simple and clean interface, but you do not have to envy any more advanced graphic design program, the simple design of its interface allows even employees who are not familiar with the subject of graphic design develop all kinds of publications ranging from calendars, brochures, diplomas, newsletters, resumes, posters, information sheets, letterheads, envelopes, business forms, invitations, catalogs, brochures, calendars to announcements in general.

I love its ease when converting formats into different types of files as could be in PDF or XPS without any problem saves me large amounts of time at the time of some work from my home or office with the variety of templates that this has and ways to make types of cards, brochures, brochure and invitations ect. A wide customizable dashboard within the software that helps to be simpler and easier to use.

What do you dislike?

One of its drawbacks is that being an easy to use program and something simple occupies more space than desired, and little union between some more current programs of design for a better programming at the time of joining the work within the same software in concluding are few Things I do not like about this program because I use it daily in my work and does not generate major problem and is very easy and easy to use.

"Microsoft Publisher is great for quick and easy typography projects"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Publisher is great for quick and easy typography projects, it offers you a lot of templates for every need you have. This is what I like most, the fact the it always have a ready to print template that in minutes can became customized following my needs. This thanks to the interface intuitive and fast and thanks to the many tools avaible.

What do you dislike?

What I really can't understand is how it's possible that Microsoft Publisher still have a poor graphic designs area. Can be helpfull to modify a picture and a logo inside the software, without the needs to use multiple software for the same graphic project. This is one of the big and common missing in the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Despite the appearence Microsoft Publisher is second to none when talking about fast designing and printing. I really reccomend you to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Solid Page Layout Software"

What do you like best?

Simple interface that's extremely clean, when compared to InDesign or similar pro-level tools. There are lots of tutorials from other users online (Youtube, etc), great time-tested design that hasn't really changed in years. Overall the software is stable and works very well.

What do you dislike?

Can occasionally crash and be a bit buggy. Microsoft seems dead-set on pushing everyone to their cloud-based/subscription service. Annoying advertising for that and constant pushing in that direction. Just purchasing the one-time license alone is a test in patience. I would recommend purchasing from a reseller, as that seems to be the absolute easiest way, as opposed to purchasing it through MS directly. You can often save money going around them as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Publisher is a great tool that definitely is easier to use (and cheaper) than InDesign or similar Pro-Level software. I would say try it out before buying to make sure it will do what you need it to do. My biggest complaint is how Microsoft as a company tries to push Microsoft Office 365 as a subscription product so hard, as opposed to letting people easily (without jumping through 10,000,000 steps and windows) purchase the product outright. I think overall Publisher is best for smaller-house style clients, so keep that in mind as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used it to design flyers and items of this sort. Much easier than using Word (on the simple extreme) or InDesign (on the more complex side).

"Using MS Publisher for simple promotional materials"

What do you like best?

overall needs to be updated, but it is perfect for a simple job in publishing such as a basic flyer, program or brochure for an event. I used publisher most recently to create a program and flyers for a conference at the college where i work and it was very easy to do so.

What do you dislike?

There are newer, similar software out there that offer more modern features. If ms publisher adopted some of these features, it would better be able to compete with the competition. Some fonts are outdated, templates are outdated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you are looking for premade templates that are up to date, this program is not the best. it works best for providing a basic lay out and then you can add your own creative flare to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

creating promotional materials/marketing materials for events. I have used this program to create flyers, invitations, programs and brochures.

"Like an old friend!"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Publisher and I go way back to when it first became popular before the Adobe suite of products. I have used it for various projects and what I like most is that it is great for a person starting out with desktop publishing. The templates are built right in, so if you don't know where to start, Publisher gives you a boost.

What do you dislike?

There are some limitations in using MS Publisher with regards to how creative you can get with editing. You usually have to stick with their parameters when it comes to doing advanced level publishing tasks. It is only compatible with other MS products, so there is no crossover with Adobe.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for beginning and novice desktop publisher tasks! You will find it user friendly with lots of built in features to make your job easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ease of use makes my process much quicker and I can get a project done in less time. This increases my bottom line.

""The best editor you can buy""

What do you like best?

Personally Microsoft Publisher tool allows you to make templates for small businesses, is an easy to use, advanced editor that fits your needs which allows you among many things the realization of pamphlets, advertising, sheets of life, among others. Facilitating the entrepreneurship of small businesses, to obtain better income and benefits by letting you know. Also I can emphasize that being a Microsoft tool and having knowledge of other tools such as Word or Power Point the use of Microsoft Publisher is not going to be so difficult because it has the same creation format.

What do you dislike?

Despite being a good editing tool, it has certain weaknesses that when used can delay the editing process a bit like not admitting other market programs as a link, the editing can be very basic compared to other programs like PhotoShop. However for someone who is in full growth, is a very good editor. In addition, to be so simple is an editor that takes up a lot of space being this counterproductive when storing information or creating documents from devices with reduced RAM storage making it impossible to work fast.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Acquire the editing tool and simplify its functions giving better results to larger and smaller companies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As business growth the use of this tool has allowed me to streamline the processes of knowledge of it since it has helped me to create talkers, pamphlets, brochures with relevant information to make a company known, undoubtedly it is a tool that simplifies the creation of documents that benefit a company.

"Great solution for quick publication creation! "

What do you like best?

Publisher is great because it's a quick and accessible way to create and export publications quickly and easily. I love how Publisher has the elements I've come to know and love of the other Microsoft Office applications. It makes for a nice workflow when switching between apps. Publisher also has many preset options and templates to create 100s of different types of documents.

What do you dislike?

There are a few sections within Publisher that work a little differently than expected. Sometimes there are things I would like to accomplish such as adding a frame to a photo that take a couple of steps more than they should to achieve. I have also come across of few elements that work in one Office program but work differently within Publisher.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are new to Publisher but are familiar with the other Microsoft Office applications, this should be an easy transition for you as it functions very similarly to the other programs. However, make sure you take the time to review all of the features Publisher has to offer. It is much more robust than PowerPoint or Word and will allow you to create great, professional-looking publications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Publisher has given me the opportunity to make great-looking Publications for the promotional efforts I am part of at our company. I'm able to create invitations, posters and more for our events. It's great being able to access templates that give me an easy way to create what I would have to start from scratch on otherwise.
