Get started designing your own professional publications

Thumbnails of some publications you can create in Publisher


Publisher isn't just for creating newsletters or brochures. It provides predesigned templates for a wide range of publication types, including business cards, postcards, flyers, gift certificates, resumes, catalogs, and even Web sites.

When it comes to creating publications, Publisher offers advantages that word-processing programs don't.

Have you ever been intimidated by a blank page? In Publisher, predesigned publications already have images and placeholder text, so it's easy to see where your content can go. Prefer total control? All publications are composed of independent text and picture elements that give you unlimited flexibility in page layout.

In this lesson, you'll learn how to start a new publication from a predesigned one, identify the different design elements, and modify those design elements to suit your style.
