Can we make a flyer without graphic design and editing tools, did you know you can also make a flyer in PowerPoint itself? And it also requires no professional level in design, with the amount of graphics available in PowerPoint, along with this tutorial, I believe any of us can successfully create a flyer that is suitable for its intended use.
Without further ado, read this article and let’s get started.
I. Determine the size of the flyer
In fact, the flyers that you come across every day come in a wide variety of sizes and designs.
To define the size, click Design, in the Slide Size section select Customize Slide.
One recommended sizes for the most commonly seen flyers is A4 portrait size paper. In Slides sized for select A4, and tick at Portrait in Orientation.
If you want to create the size with your own parameters, enter in the 2 boxes Height and Width right below.
Click OK and a window pops-up. At this point you should select Ensure Fit, as the content will fit on the new slide better.
II. Choose the style for the flyer
This is the same with when you design for a slide page. Go to tab Design and selet from the given templates in the Themes section.
If none of the theme satisfies you, I suggest looking for one online. Enter the keyword “PowerPoint flyer templates“, download and open it, then select the slide you want to apply and edit it.
Or you can also go to File => New. In the search box type in “Flyer“. PowerPoint will return a lot of results, here I will download a template I like to continue.
III. Add text and picture to flyer in PowerPoint
Now that I have the flyer template I want, the next job is to add content and pictures to beautify the flyer.
I guess inserting pictures and text has become very familiar to many of you. First, to add a picture, we go to Insert => Picture.
It is better to use a picture with a transparent background. Otherwise, you can also use the Remove Background tool in the Format section, which is also very useful.
After inserting the picture, you can start adding text. You can click on the “Click to add…” section in the template like me, or go to Insert => select Textbox.
All editing and formatting of fonts, pictures shapes if you have added, is done by selecting the object you want to edit and go to tab Format.
IV. Print your PowerPoint flyer.
Once the flyer is finished, you will now think of print it out. You should first export it to PDF, click File => Export => Create PDF/XPS Document then select Create PDF/XPS.
Name the file. If the current PowerPoint file contains many slides, and you only want to save the flyer slide just created, go to Options. In the Range section, click Current Slide, then OK and you can export.
So, today we have gone through how to create a flyer just with PowerPoint. And as you can see, this software still plays its best role as one of the best design application. Not only contains a lot of templates, editing options, but also allows online searches. So if you are interested, follow ourblog to learn more useful knowledge.
