Hi, this is Kyle Parker for Expert Village and I'm going to show you how to create a template or stationery in Microsoft Word. Simply create a new document and then you can start adjusting it to whatever you would like. First thing you'd probably want to do is go to view and then go to tool bars and click background. And then you can bring up your background here and then you can simply choose a background color for your stationery or you could do something like an effect where you can get shading that will give you kind of a nice texture gradient as you go down the page. From any direction you would like, you can pick two colors here and you'll see how that changes things. Or you could simply go over to a texture that's already been created here and then put that down and then so now you have like a nice textured background. And then I'd like to insert some type of clip art. So once you have your clip art and your text and your whole background in place go ahead and go to file and then save as. Instead of saving it as your regular word document, you want to come down here and save it as a document template. And this should head you over to your Microsoft templates folder under my templates, and then this could be our Agro Biz Incorporated template. And so then you'll simply just save that and then you can close it. And then the next time you go over to your project gallery, under my templates, you should see the templates that you've created and you can simply click on your Agro Biz Incorporated template, open that up and now you have your template ready to go.
