It is easy to make flyers using Microsoft Word. Open a new Word document, and save it under the flyer’s file name. Several choices exist for flyer coloring. You can make basic black print on white paper flyers, or flyers on a white background with colored lettering and borders and images, or flyers with colored backgrounds. Before you begin to format your flyer, go to the View tab in the upper toolbar. Choose the Print Layout, as this will allow you to see the changes you are making to your flyer as you make them.
Step 1 – To color the background of your flyer document, use the Page Layout tab in the upper toolbar. Notice the Page Background section in the middle of the Page Layout toolbar. Changing the background color of your document is as easy as clicking on one of the colored boxes that are displayed when you hit the Page Color icon in the Page Background section of the toolbar.
Step 2 – You may also want to add a border to your flyer. In the same Page Background section of the toolbar, choose the Page Borders icon. Click the Page Borders tab. On the left-hand side of the box, under “Setting,” you can choose the way you would like the border to display, such as in a box around the entire page, or just on one side of the page as a partial border. Select the setting you prefer. In the center column is a “Style” box where you can choose the type of line you would like to use for the border, below that is a “Color” box where you can choose the border’s color, and also a “Width” box to choose the border width. In the bottom box, under “Art,” you may choose different artistic icons to use for the border, such as hearts, stars or trees, instead of a line. In the last column, just make sure “Whole Document” is highlighted under the “Apply” box. Once all your border choices are made, click “OK.”
Step 3 – To add images to your flyer, use the Insert tab. In the Illustrations subsection, choose the Picture icon. This will allow you to chose
Step 4 – Add text to your flyer by using the Home tab. Begin typing wherever the cursor is placed. In the Font subsection, you can choose the font style and size. Highlight your text once it is typed out, then play with different font styles and types by highlighting them on the
Step 5 – Microsoft Office has templates for flyers in Word. The flyer templates include event flyers, announcements, advertisements, posters and banners. (Make sure to choose a template that says Word below it, as some are only for Publisher or PowerPoint.) Download one of these templates and save it in a file on your computer’s hard drive. After it is saved, open the file, click on the text you want to replace, erase the old text, and replace with your new text. Make sure to save the file with your new flyer’s title.
