Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Publisher

I use Microsodt Publisher to create quick signs or flyers. As a construction company, there is always something that we need to create quickly that is specific to one job or client. This program allows me to create and save templates that I can customize to each job, or I can start from scratch and put something together in minutes that looks professional for our client.
  • Importing photos to insert into flyers or documents.
  • Creating quick signs for either directions or safety at jobsites so the superintendents can have them right away.
  • There is a wealth of pre-loaded shapes, fonts, and clip arts that allows for a professional looking document without having to have a graphic design degree to figure it out.
  • Overall I don't have any issues using this program.
  • The ability to import photos and logos for each specific client.
  • The ease of adding text boxes, images, etc. to create balanced and professional-looking flyers or brochures.
  • The ability to import client-specific fonts/colors in order to personalize to each individual job.
  • The ability to create and save templates for use on future projects.
  • I have been able to create flyers and brochures that in the past we sent out to a marketing company and spent a ton of money on something I was able to do myself in minutes.
  • The quick and simple user experience has allowed us to create signs that are designed to keep people safe on our job sites. This is important because we take safety very seriously and sometimes need to be able to produce these signs in a matter of minutes so that the superintendent can safely mark off areas to avoid.
  • The program has taken the place of Word and Excel in many cases to make documents like proposals look more balanced and professional.

Microsoft Publisher is well suited for almost any situation. It is something that I'm sure has far more advanced tools than I use or am aware of, but it is also very simple for entry-level users to create professional documents quickly. I have used it for very involved brochures in real estate scenarios and I have also used it for very simple "Construction Zone" signs at a job site under construction. There are so many uses for this program!
