From simple idea to flushed out final product, Microsoft Publisher is

there for you every step of the way.  In today's marketing oriented day and age, it's essential to catch potential customers and markets attention immediately.  And the best way to do that is to create something that is visually stimulating.  Face it, presentation is definetly everything, and the people at Microsoft kept that in mind while putting together Publisher. 

It's almost too easy to use this thing.  All you need is an idea, and Publisher does pretty much the rest.  Whether your goal is print or web publication, layout, design, and content management has never been easier.  Though it is designed with professional sales and marketing materials in mind, Publisher is just as effective in creating, designing, and maintaining anything for print.  You can do everything from sales one-sheets, to press releases, to webpages, to a print magazine by using the provided templates or working from scratch with a blank page. 

Publisher includes over 8500 possible combonations of publications types, designs, and color and font schemes to make sure you get exactly what you want.  You can easily add content to your clipboard, and simply drag and drop to where and how you want it on your document.  When precise object positioning is a priority, advanced graphic and text treatment such as tracking, kerning, and scaling are available in the accessible toolbar.  Included is spell check, a thesaurus to beef up and make your type more attractive and appealing, print preview, headers and footers, and the picture toolbar…so all the things you're used to in Office, are right at your fingertips.  You can even convert existing brochures and newsletters into websites with a simple single click. 

So get off the couch and quit whining about how someone took your idea or how you could be a millionaire with your idea if you only had the tools.  Microsoft Publisher is your answer.  Make your idea a visual reality and turn your dreams and desires into substance.  Get them out of your head and onto paper.  Before Publisher, that was the first and toughest step.  Now it's all easy…and most importantly, fun!
