Word: Creating a Booklet
Did you know that Word can be used to create a pamphlet or booklet easily? For best results, start with a new, blank Word document. This will help you manage the content a bit easier.
In Word 2003, go to the File menu and select Page Setup to open the Page Setup dialog box.
In Word 2007 or 2010, go to the Page Layout tab. Open the Page Setup dialog by clicking the dialog launcher in the lower right corner of the Page Setup group.
Click on the Margins tab and choose Book Fold in the Multiple Pages dropdown. Make sure your document is set to Landscape, and set your Inside and Outside margins. You can add space for binding in the Gutter box, if necessary. You will see that you can choose a specified number of pages, or just leave it at All. Hint: if you set a number and go over, it will print the extra pages in a new booklet!
When you have the settings, as you want them, type up your booklet adding all the graphics and other goodies you would like.
When you go to print your booklet make sure you use a double-sided print setting. Don’t have a duplex printer? No sweat! Simply select the Manual Duplex check box in the Print dialog box in Word 2003 or 2007, or Manually Print on Both Sides from the Print menu on the File tab in Word 2010. One side will print and then you will be prompted to turn your stack over and print the backs.
