    My favorite software for making flyers is Microsoft Outlook.

    I e-mail my graphics guy and he e-mails it back to me.

    Like Lawnchoice and many others on here, when making them myself I use microsoft publisher. It can be a little expensive but if you are going to design professional looking flyers yourself then it is worth every penny. I do agree with Hammons though, if the money permits you can get great results having someone else do them!

    If you are planning on having your poster printed by a professional, it would be better to have them design it, this way they will use the correct program. Publisher, Word, Powerpoint, etc....these programs are not intended for sending to a printer, they only give the printer headaches. The preferred choice of layout programs would be Quark, InDesign, Pagemaker; Illustration programs for creating a design for your poster would be Illustrator, Freehand or Photoshop. These are professional programs and most printers and designers have them and they make the difference in any design, the rest are just not worth the $. If you are printing the posters yourself, then you really can get along with something like Word, Publisher...they won't cause you any problems printing from your own printer. Though, you still have limitations in design elements...just to give you some insight from a designer and prepress manager.
