Publish it!

There are probably more copies of Publisher out there than all the other DTP programs put together. That may be because Publisher 2000 is incorporated into the latest versions of Office Premium, and because earlier versions have been bundled with many new computers over the last two years.

Publisher's main claim to fame is ease of use due to the enormous number of templates supplied with the program. Everything from business cards to newsletters is included - all just waiting for you to add your own text and images. For this reason, Publisher lends itself to jobs that need to be put together quickly "in-house" with little or no outside expertise. Of course, the downside of the template approach is the risk that your brochure will look just like your competitors'!

For personal use, it is hard to go past Publisher. It is inexpensive, reasonably easy to use with the previously mentioned templates and the ubiquitous Microsoft wizards. It also comes with a truckload of clip art which is guaranteed to keep the kids happy as they experiment with Grandma's next birthday or Christmas card.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
