Data merge

Easily integrate text and image links into your document by merging from an external data source (Text/CSV, JSON and Excel files are currently supported). Perfect for creating certificates, business cards, badges, tickets, form letters, envelopes and catalogues.

Live preflight checking

Customize the all new Preflight panel to receive live warnings for possible errors in your document, including poor image resolution, bleed hazards, overflowing text, spelling errors, missing images or font resources, and more.

Unrivalled compatibility

  • Spot colour support
  • Pantone library included
  • ICC colour profiles

Professional output

Pantone support, end-to-end CMYK and ICC colour management are just part of it.  You can also open, edit and output PDF/X files, set overprint controls and add bleed, trim and crop and marks for press-ready output.

With Affinity Publisher, you can directly link to your other Affinity apps through StudioLink.

The first technology of its kind, this revolutionary feature takes the pain out of publishing by allowing you to instantly switch to the advanced photo editing features of Affinity Photo and precise vector tools of Affinity Designer without ever leaving the app.  It's the most fluid workflow ever conceived in a creative suite of applications, and the reason Serif named its apps Affinity.
