Scribus

ScribusYou don’t need a pricey suite of software to turn out professional-looking documents to represent your business.  If you are motivated and reasonably artistic, you can use Scribus, a powerful open source desktop publishing program freely available to everybody, to design flyers, brochures, and more for your farm or other enterprise.

Scribus was developed to produce print-ready PDFs.  It combines all of the tools you need to make sure that what you see is what you get, whether the finished product goes on your website or to a print-on-demand service.

This program is quite powerful.  Every aspect is fully customizable, but this means that there’s quite a bit you’ll have to learn to make the most of Scribus.  It comes with an excellent built-in manual, and online tutorials are also available to make the learning process smoother.

Combine this tool with a word processor and some good photo-editing software, and you’ll be designing like a pro in no time.

Despite its incredible capabilities, Scribus can fit into every budget—it’s free!
