What is Microsoft Publisher used for?

Microsoft Publisher lets you work as easily as you do in Microsoft Word, but instead of using tools for text, you’ll be using tools for editing page layouts and visual content. Having said that, you may be wondering, what are the things you can do in Microsoft Publisher? The answer: almost anything you need to professionally design and publish your material.

Some examples include:

Personalized birthday cards

Event posters

Newsletters for small businesses and organizations

Professional business cards Flyers and programs

Postcards and brochures

Of course, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Editing and customizing that content is where MS Publisher really shines. You can work from scratch, from templates, or from existing content you may already have.
