Information Material and the PDF

In this day and age of web surfers and Internet users, effective distribution of information means providing material and resources electronically in a neat and effective package. Information material that a company or organization wants to make available may include all kinds of pamphlets, leaflets, newsletters, business cards, brochures, technical documentation, user manuals, product specs, catalogues, annual reports, etc.

The majority of these resources today are created and shared digitally. When it comes to creating documents and materials, there is a myriad of desktop, online and mobile tools to create stylish, engaging and helpful information material that can be shared and viewed online.

One of the most massively used software packages for creating professional documents, presentations and publications is the Microsoft Office Suite. MS Office offers a wide array of features for the easy and quick creation of professional-looking publications for both digital distribution and printing.

The most obvious choice among Microsoft office applications for creating publications such as brochures, leaflets, newsletters or catalogs is MS Publisher. Using its pre-designed templates, even an average computer user can publish a powerful publication.

On the other hand, many users opt for the ubiquitous Word to create their information materials and resources. MS Word also has a vast collection of ready-made templates that you can use to create any type of document you can think of: booklets, reports, partnership agreements, sales contracts, business cards, etc.

Regardless of the office application you’re using for preparing your information material, once you’ve created and saved it, you should think about the next step: digital distribution or printing.

A lot of information materials are nowadays distributed and offered exclusively online. For digital distribution purposes, you first need a format in which to display your content. If you want to preserve the look and feel of your resource when uploaded online or emailed, then the universal PDF format is the best choice.
