For newsletters you can use:

A) a combination of Quark, Adobe Illustrator, and PhotoShop. This is the
method used by most design houses. Very effective and costly; however if
you are already doing catalogs, you may have the software there.
B) CorelDraw -- though it is more difficult than the above.
C) MSWord -- though the design ability will be limited and it gets funky
with certain graphic formats.
D) A combination of PhotoShop (or Paint Shop Pro), CD or Illustrator and

I have used all of the above; and for just a quick but professional
newsletter, I prefer CorelDraw. If CD is unavailable then option D is
probably your best bet.

Will this newsletter be also ported to the web or is it strictly paper?

Good luck.
