With its Halloween-colored orange-on-black screen text, Swift Desktop Publisher is actually a suite of graphics and printing software combined with sample fonts and graphics images. Draw & Paint is a program for making screen-size images. Create Clip Art is a graphics program for making smaller graphics images. Customize Characters is a program for creating custom character sets. Create lettering is a program for creating custom letters for specialized use. Format a printed page is a program to set all the parts of your document on page-sized layouts for printing. Banners & Bumpers is a program to lay out formats in up to 6-pages for a banner or "bumper sticker." Print, as the name implies, lets you select which type of document to print and then allows you to select the printer to print with. List Sample Files is a listing of the files on the Swift Desktop Publisher program disk that contain special lettering, fonts, clip art, and banner lettering.

Two years later, COSMI incorporated a later version of Swift Desktop Publisher in their integrated suite Top 20 Software Tools.
