Chapter 39. Publisher Essentials > Creating and Editing a New Publication

Creating and Editing a New Publication

When creating a new publication, you're faced with a number of choices—do you use one of the predesigned publications or create one from scratch using your own design? While Publisher's templates make it easy to quick-start a publication, if your business already has a certain look to its publications, you will probably choose to design the publication from scratch so that its design complements your existing publications. If you created a publication previously in Publisher, and now need to create something similar, consider using the previous publication as the basis for the new one, to save time. In this section we look at your options for creating a publication and step you through the basics of getting up and running with Publisher.

Using and Customizing Publisher Templates

Publisher contains a number of professionally designed publications to get you started with typical tasks. These look attractive and are a good starting point if you're unfamiliar with designing your own publications; however, they also carry the risk of all “mass produced” templates, which is that your brochure or Web site will look exactly like someone else's. Even though Publisher contains 45 master design sets and several thousand individual designs, the popularity of the program means that you (and your customers) will see many of these designs in use by other businesses.
