As for the clunky process: exactly what is your role in this? It seems like your client doesn't want to relinquish control and still is the designer.

What type of packaging is it: box, Stretch Pak, or something else? Bearing in mind that you might need to have die lines or fold marks for some types.

Is Publisher a good design program? No, but it is the one he knows how to use. I've had people send me designs for print done in PowerPoint for the same reason.

As you mentioned, it would be the best option if you produced the final output, after communicating with the printer about what they need from you in terms of technical specifications.

This would enable him to spend more time inventing, instead of wrestling with Publisher!
