TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Microsoft Publisher is a great way for tech writers to
create brochures. It has templates that let
you create brochures a number of ways,
with a variety of text placement, graphics
and fold options.
Once you have your brochure in a file, you
can print to a laser, then have the printer
print from your master.
What software do you recommend to create a brochure? I have Word 6.0
and FrameMaker 4 on a PC. I found only one brochure template with Word,
and nothing with FrameMaker. Any suggestions, including use these in
other ways, or other software (such as, QuarkExpress or PrintShop)?
Any recommendations on creating a brochure that will generate sales (the
product is new training equipment for martial arts, startup company)?
For those who created brochures from your own bank account, do you recommend
doing the work first and then giving it over to a printer to make glossies, or
just give ideas and have the printer do all the work?
