Save

So you are tired of spending a small fortune at your neighborhood print shop. Don't worry. You are not alone. Whether you are thinking of making a travel brochure for the next family vacation or as part of your small home-based business materials, learning how to make a travel brochure on the computer will save you time and money. It also offers you the ultimate control over content and presentation. Within a short period of time, you may print any number of travel brochures right from the comfort of home.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Color printer
  • Paper
  • Microsoft Word or Microsoft Works

How to Make a Travel Brochure on the Computer With Microsoft Word

  • Boot up your computer. Wait until all your programs are fully loaded. Open a blank Microsoft Word document.

  • Click on "File," "Page setup" and then "Orientation." You may now change from the regular portrait paper orientation to the landscape orientation, which allows you to fill the paper sideways.

  • Click on "Format" and choose "Columns." Travel brochures usually have three columns and are folded three times; by following this simple truism, you are well on your road to creating a travel brochure on your computer that mimics those professionally printed.

  • Add your text into the three columns. Include pictures, photos and clip art.

  • Save the travel brochure by clicking on "File" and then "Save." Double-check your spelling, grammar and punctuation. Proofread carefully for any homonyms or errors.

  • Send your finished brochure to the printer by clicking on "File" and then "Print."

How to Make a Travel Brochure on the Computer With Microsoft Works

  • Click on the program options of your computer. Usually you can get there from the "Start" option.

  • Choose the Microsoft Works Task Launcher. It will open up a general screen that offers access to the word processor, spreadsheet and functions.

  • Click on the "Templates" option. This presents you with access to a variety of different already-created documents that simply need additional text and pictures.

  • Choose the "Newsletter & Fliers" category from the left. From there, pick the "Brochures" option.

  • Change the title options (there really is not anything for travel) and remember that these brochures are half-folded, not tri-folded. Include all the text and pictures you have available. Make sure to spellcheck carefully.

  • Save the finished brochure and send it to the printer.

Tips & Warnings

  • Consider using photo paper of the highest quality for your finished brochures. It will be worth it.
  • Printing travel brochures from your computer takes a lot of ink. Confirm that you have spare ink cartridges before you start.
