Word processing programs and less-expensive layout software like Microsoft Word, Publisher, Power Point, Excel, and other programs like these, do a suitable job around the office, but have limited features for offset printing. These software programs are best used for output to laser printers or color copiers.Software is constantly upgraded, and the version you use is important. Different versions can cause compatibility problems and the files may not look the same. If the file must be transmitted from one computer platform to another (Mac to PC or PC to Mac), the correct version must be used to assure the file will look the same on the new platform. Please call us to make sure we can accept the version that you are using.
