Microsoft Publisher Is Not Suitable For Commercial Printing


Microsoft Publisher is a design package created for printing on home and office printers. It was never intended for commercial production which is why it is completely unsuited to it. No professional graphic designers would dream of using it to produce their work.
There are two main reasons for this -
Firstly it is very basic design software which has none of the sophistication or controls that professional layout packages such as Adobe InDesign and Quark Express.
Secondly it is intended for designing simple jobs which would then be printed from the very same computer, with out transferring the file. This is because it is not at all good at linking to the fonts and graphics you select from your computer to use in the design. Once you transfer the file to another machine that does not have the same fonts or graphics, the design falls to peaces.
This even happens when you save the file as a PDF. You see the underlying architecture is just not designed for it. You could be the worlds greatest Microsoft Publisher operator but the limitations of the software would still stop you from using it for professional print production, in most cases.
Unlike most printers though we will take Microsoft Publisher PDF files it they are intended to be printed digitally rather than in bulk, on the printing press. However it must be accompanied by a print out from your PC, showing us what the design looked like when it left your computer. As I have already explained this is because something may well have dropped off by the time we upload onto ours.
