How to create a newsletter with Microsoft Office Publisher 2007


This step-by-step tutorial will walk you through the basics of creating a newsletter with Microsoft Office Publisher 2007. Microsoft Publisher 2007 is a great software program for creating custom newsletters.

Whether you’re promoting your business, updating school activities, or simply keeping your friends and family up to date on the latest news, Publisher 2007 is the perfect choice. The software program contains a wide variety of templates to help you choose a layout for your newsletter which can then be customized any way you like.

Step 1 – Getting Started

To get started, open Microsoft Publisher and scroll down the Publication Types section (bottom left) to find the newsletters option in the menu. Choose the design that is closest to the one you want.

You will be given the option to change your layout colors, font scheme, and page size. Once you’ve completed this, click the “Create” button located at the bottom right of the screen so you can start working on your content.

Step 2 – Editing the newsletter

In each text box, you can enter your own information by typing or copying it from a Word document and pasting it into your text box. In the main menu, you’ll find all the tools you need to select the font, font size, and text appearance.

If you click outside the text box, you can use your mouse to adjust the width and height to fit your page.

Step 3 – Add or edit images

Now it’s time to add images to your newsletter. To add your image, simply highlight the image within the newsletter that you wish to change, click “Insert” located on the toolbar, and then select “Image.” You can choose from existing clip art included with the software or upload your own images.

Once you add the image, click on it with your mouse and you can adjust the size. You can also move it to the desired location on the page. Follow this same process if your newsletter includes more than one page until you have created all of your content and saved it.

Save and distribute your newsletter

Let’s not forget to save our newsletter. To do so, click the save icon on the toolbar or select the file and then choose save using the dropdown menu.

Microsoft Publisher 2007 includes a way to electronically distribute your newsletter. The new email merge list can be customized to include a personal message for the people you’re trying to reach.

In addition to the address block, there is a greeting line where you can include a special message for each person who will receive it. The email merge feature will work with both Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express.
