Instructions for Creating a Flyer

Downloaded Template

Finished Sample


 

Each line of text in the template contains instruction as to what kind of information should appear on that line. To adhere to the design guidelines, simply highlight a line of text and type over it.

For instance, with “Event Title,” highlight the words on that line with your cursor and type in the title of your event. Follow the same instruction for “Name of Lecture” (which should appear in quotation marks), “Name of Speaker,” “Sponsorship information,” etc.

In the case of bracketed instruction to leave a line space, highlight “[line space]” and delete, leaving the appropriate number of line spaces suggested in the template.
