Serif PagePlus X5 - Best-in-Class Desktop Publisher

The Lone Penman

There are things the world needs to know. Conspiracies, evil plots, devastating grammar mistakes, and really, really bad ideas. The public has to be warned, and someone has to do the warning.

Which is why you became the Lone Penman. Naturally you don’t use an actual pen to distribute your vital information, but the name has a certain old-school charm, like the skeuomorphic icons on your smartphone. Name aside, no one’s going to take seriously a warning from The Lone Penman that was created in Paint – and a basic word document won’t get nearly enough attention.

What you need is a desktop publisher that will let you turn your messages and theories into professional documents – whether brochures, flyers, posters or even a magazine – a desktop publisher like Serif PagePlus X5. With advanced text and image tools as well as logo and branding features, you’ll be able to use the included templates to quickly create documents that will show your style and catch attention.

Picture your next story – Is the Tooth Fairy an Alien – on a colorful flyer complete with illustrative images and compelling typography. Serif PagePlus X5 gives you the creative tools and support you need to make it happen with Smart Assistance and How-To Guides complementing straightforward features. You can even edit, export and merge PDF files - like your newsletter about the disappearance of the Oxford comma - and prepare your documents for printing right in PagePlus X5.

To get serious attention, your projects from logos to newsletters need the serious design and publishing tools of Serif PagePlus X5.
