The first step in making a brochure is to browse the available templates and find a good, eye-catching design. The second step is to add original content, such as words and images that are relevant to the topic of the brochure. Microsoft Word has the ability to adjust the size and color of your text, as well as manipulate the size and placement of any images. Microsoft Word is not as precise as professional software such as Adobe InDesign, but choosing an attractive template allows the user to achieve the desired result.

A printing technique called "full bleed" ensures that the brochure is printed as desired, without any white space taking up the brochure. Test print the brochure to see if the "bleed" gives the most accurate result.
