Publisher Plus for Mac is Desktop Publishing (DTP) software you can use to design and create professional quality flyers, brochures, posters and business cards right on your MacIntosh computer – quickly and efficiently.
To do this, it offers lots of tools and an intuitive interface which allows you to start projects from scratch or use the available 170 professionally designed templates, which you can modify and mix with your own graphics to suit your needs. You can in addition click the Store button (see screenshot) to download additional template packages for free with your Apple Account.
Pearl Mountain constantly adds template packages to the Store. When we last checked, there were a total of 72 designs, 9 for each pack, ready for download to expand your templates library – which we did.

You can read more about and get Publisher Plus at http://pearlmountainsoft.com/publisherplus/ for just $39.90, which I think would be well spent.
You can get tutorials, including the one above, showing “How to Design Page Layout Document for Desktop Publishing” on using this & other products from the Pearl Mountains Youtube Channel.
Publisher Plus is a great product, simple enough for home, and good enough for professional office use.
A personal wish would be for Pearl Mountain to seriously consider a Windows version, just like they offer a couple of Windows programs.
Other products of the company include Picture Collage Maker, CollageIt and Watermark Plus.
