Publisher is a desktop publishing application that formats text and graphics on a page, with designer tools that let you experiment freely and create formats with more flair.

Publisher is designed to handle a large amount of text and pictures with complex layout and printing needs, and offers new ways to work with your pictures, so you can move them around, swap them, and use new picture and text effects.  Publisher lets you search for pictures, whether they’re on your computer, in the Office.com clip art gallery, or on the web.

Note:  The examples below are from Publisher 2013 - Microsoft has not yet updated their online information for Publisher 2016. As soon as the information is available, we'll update this webpage.
