    • 3

      Now that you have the accurate data its time to create the roster.

    • 4

      Take a picture of the team's logo and covert to a .jpg file, this format makes it easy to adjust the picture which you'll use for the insert.

      For the roster select a quarter-fold template using the greeting cards software. Keep the font simple and legible and incorporate the team's colors. Use baseball clip art for the front and back of the roster.

      Now that you have the clip-art and logo, it's time to create the roster. The team's name and year appear on the front. For example 'West All-Stars 2006' On the back, if they have a mascot inspire the team with 'Go Mudcats!'.

      Use Word to create the insert for the roster. The insert will display the team's logo, players, and parents. Use a different color to distinguish the players from parents. For example the team's practice colors are black and red. Use black to identify the Players and red for the Parents. Create a key to appear in the bottom right-hand corner.

      Place the logo in the center of the document. Type the player's full name and only the parents' first names below. When finished, the players will surround the logo.

      Now it's time to print! This will be a two-sided print job. Print the inserts first and allow a few minutes to dry. Place an insert in the printer (face-up or face-down dependent upon your printer) and print a copy of the roster. Allow time for the rosters to dry before folding.
