A brochure is a paper document or booklet that contains information about an event. No fancy graphics software is required to design them if you are familiar with Microsoft Word.The software allows you to create basic brochures that look both professional and impressive. In this post, we will see how to create a brochure using Microsoft Word.
Microsoft Word has pre-configured booklet page settings that let you create an event booklet or print an ambitious book project.
Create a brochure or book using Word
Start Microsoft Word. Then, on the PAGE PAGE tab, click the icon in the lower-right corner of the Page Setup group to open the Page Setup window.
Then, on the Margins tab under Pages, change the Multiple Pages setting to Book Fold. The orientation automatically changes to Landscape.
If the document is longer, it is advisable for you to divide it into several booklets. To do this, in the Sheets Per Booklet section, select the number of pages you want to print in each booklet.
Increase the width of the Gutter to reserve enough space on the inner fold for binding .
When finished, go to the Paper tab and select the paper size. You can also make the look decorative by adding borders. To do this, go to the Layout tab of the Page Setup window and select Borders from the list of options displayed there.
Now that you’re ready to print your booklet, check your print settings and make sure the option to print on both sides of the sheet is turned on, and flip the sheets over correctly for printing to work as expected.
If your printer supports automatic printing on both sides, under Options, change the Print On One Side option to Print On Both Sides. Select Flip Pages on Short Edge to avoid printing the second side of each sheet upside down.
If your printer does not support automatic printing on both sides, select the Manual Print on Both Sides option and return the pages to the printer when prompted.
Finally, click on the FILE button and select the “Print” option.
