    I just used power point, it does a lot better than microsoft word because you are able to freely move pictures around. I've also heard that microsoft publisher works very well.

    + 1 on Microsoft Publisher. It has many nice templates for many different formats that come with it and doesn't take long to develop nice materials. I do my flyers and business cards with it.

    Adobe Photoshop works really well for me. Moving pictures around and layering everything makes them look very professional. Vista Print can print them and ship them for a resonable price as well.

    I love Microsoft publisher, its very easy to use and very professional looking you can make anything you want with that program, from flyers, brochures, coupons, business cards, web sites, you name it they got it! If you plan to be at this for a long time it's well worth the money! I actually got so good on the program I've made money making menu's for hoagie shops, flyers for real estate agents, gift certificates for different stores(all from ppl I previously new of course) but once they would see something I made they would offer to pay me to make them something, so mine more than paid for itself and if you have micro office you just buy the upgrade for a hund bucks
    here is what i have on mine so far let me know what you think thx
