Whether you’re designing a booklet for use as a piece of promotional material, or as a type of training manual, there are two key tools you might use to design your booklet:
- Adobe InDesign and
- Microsoft Word
Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but if you’re trying to figure out how you can design a booklet on your own, using one of these programs will be of great use to you.
This article is designed to help you learn some of the best practices available for designing your booklet.
How do I design a booklet?
It’s a question we get quite often here at MGX Copy, “how do I design a booklet?”.
Generally, the design of a booklet is the first thing that’s done, aside from the actual content that goes inside the booklet. Once you have an idea for a booklet, it’s usually determined where the content will come from, and what it will look like. This is all part of the booklet design portion of your project.
Once you’ve settled on the content and overall structure of your booklet, the next thing you’ll need to figure out is the type of booklet binding you’ll need for your project.
Two programs to design your booklet
Usually, people use one of two programs when designing a booklet:
- Microsoft Word or:
- Adobe InDesign
It all depends on the type of booklet design you have in mind, as well as your familiarity with each program.
Here’s a quick guide for designing a booklet with Microsoft Word that is pretty easy to follow.
You can also use this guide for help designing a booklet in Adobe InDesign.
