5 Quick Tips to Make Great Print MS Newsletters in Word for 2020

So, what makes a great template? How do you know which Microsoft Word template is best for your project? Or, let's say you found the perfect template, but now you're not sure what to do next.

Here are some quick tips to help you make the best design decisions for your next newsletter project:

1. Command Attention With Your Cover

Your cover is your first impression—it's the first thing your viewer sees, so we want to make sure we're putting our best foot forward. This is more than just "looking good." Things need to work well too.

Consider what you want to put on the cover of your newsletter. We can use things like scale (or size) to command extra attention to key elements, like the title for example.

What will you feature on your newsletter cover design? This premium Microsoft Word newsletter takes a newspaper inspired approach.

2. Imagery Is Communicative

Images are much more than pretty extras. They can say a lot without actually using any words at all. We can use images to support, reinforce, and even change how statements and stories are portrayed to the reader.

So, for example, looking at the composition below, what do you think the key image "says" to the viewer? The text here is placeholder copy—but one might assume something heroic.

Newsletter Template Microsoft Word
Imagery should be used to complement the narrative and the subject at hand. What does the imagery in this premium newsletter layout design visually communicate to you?

3. Color Is Communicative Too

Color can also say a lot, and this can depend on your target audience. In the case of the design, below, the red is a bold color. Imagine this, instead, in blue—it might create a softer aesthetic.

Think about not only what colors communicate to you, but what they might also communicate to your audience. Then, you can make informed, strategic design decisions.

Your color choices can say a lot to your audience—check out the bold use of red in this premium newsletter template.

4. Establish Hierarchy in Your Layout

Consider hierarchy to be a system of visual dominance in your layout designs. This means, for example, that we often expect to see the title before the body copy. Why? The title generally introduces what we're reading, so it often makes sense for it to come first. 

In the case of the layout below, notice how the titles, subtitles, and call outs are larger than the body copy. They're meant to command attention first, while the smaller, body text is more supplemental.

Color, contrast, and size can be used to create emphasis, like we see in this premium professional newsletter template.

5. Organization Is Essential

A design that looks great but doesn't work great isn't successful. Good design is often about both form and function. So, keep organization in mind when working with your layout. 

The content needs to be easy to read—and there's a few things we can do to promote that.

Don't be afraid of "empty" or "white" space. This is often called negative space, in design theory. Packing too much content in one space can be overwhelming to look at and read. 

Also, consider working with a grid. Align elements to "match" each other—it can make for a more harmonious, organized, visual experience.
