PearlMountain Technology's Publisher Lite is a handy desktop publishing and page layout app for both business and home use — and it's free. With it you can design and create a variety of flyers, brochures, business cards, newsletters, advertisements, reports, calendars, posters, booklets, and more.

It comes with 45-plus professionally designed templates. You can easily customize text and create multiple pages. Publisher Lite also packs lots of art resources: clipart, backgrounds, masks, frames, preset shapes, etc.

Editing features include margin, calendar, layer, image effects, and others. There are also multiple export and share options.

Publisher Lite is available at the Mac App Store. The app requires macOS 10.7 or higher. There's also Publisher Plus for $19.99, which has more templates, clip art, and features.
