Office 2010: Good, But Still Not Graphic Design Software
It should also be mentioned, that while Office 2010 is a very comprehensive Business Software package, it still lacks a lot of the features necessary to make files that work well for commercial print. Most people will continue to set up their files in Word or PowerPoint, and pay to have us fix their bleeds or color separations. Microsoft's "desktop publishing" solution, Publisher, still has a clunky interface, and it isn't intuitive in setting up files for commercial printing. In those cases it is best to produce the highest resolution PDF you can create, and cross your fingers. Please visit our Software Requirements page for a full list of file formats we accept.
Also, if you aren't sure of the best way to set up your files, you should explore our Graphic Design services. We can either offer expert consultation or simply your project for you.
