Those wanting to pay for top software for brochure design usually don't have a lot of choices outside of the Microsoft and Adobe market, which can be potentially expensive. Besides Microsoft Publisher, freeware, and numerous Adobe programs, the market is very small. Even major Web merchants such as Amazon only offer three paid programs for brochure design. Their Marketplace sellers sell several other programs, but these may be older, used and have more limited functionality.
Mac, Windows 7, Windows 98, and Windows 95 users also will sustain even more challenges when trying to find a fully functional, relatively modern, and paid desktop publishing program that can be used to design pamphlets. These users may need to seek a freeware program or stick to available Microsoft and Adobe publishing products.
Some people may not realize that Microsoft Word, which is available for virtually any computer operating system, can be a powerful desktop publishing program including for brochure design.
The good news is most graphic designers who would rather not use the old standby of Microsoft or Adobe can find top software for brochure design; most available programs also offer thousands of fonts as well as the ability to create other documents essential to desktop publishing such as posters or postcards.
