Best publishing software for club newsletter?
posted by greatalleycat to Computers & Internet (12 answers total) 3 users marked this as a favorite
I was commissioned to start working on the monthly newsletter for my ski club. It's about 10 to 15 pages, which is mostly e-mailed to about 200 members. The club seems like it may be willing to spring for some inexpensive desktop publishing software. (under $100)
I was asked to do this since I am a journalist by trade, but on the writing and editing side. While I asked my co-workers who work on the pagination side for some tips, they only know the expensive, professional programs like Indesign (which we use at our publication) One suggested Print Shop, but he never used it himself.
I will also need to print the newsletter as a PDF, so that would also be helpful. While some basic photo editing software would be a nice addition, it is not mandatory. Does anyone have any good suggestions?
