There are many reasons why you might need to create a presentation folder. If you are applying for a grant for your non-profit or other organisation, many foundations request that you present your proposal and accompanying paperwork in a presentation folder. You might also want a presentation folder to hand out when you are leading a staff meeting. You can use Microsoft Publisher to create professional-quality covers for any type of presentation folder.

  1. 1

    Open Microsoft Publisher. Select "Quick Publications" in the list or gallery of available designs. Choose any template that is 8.5" x 11" in "Portrait" orientation and click "Create." The template will open as a new Publisher publication.

  2. 2

    Select the "Heading" placeholder on the template. Type in the topic of your meeting, the title of your grant application or any other brief message describing the reason for your presentation folders. Publisher will resize the text so that it fits this placeholder.

  3. 3

    Click inside the "Place Your Message Here" placeholder. Type over the sample text to add other important information, such as your business or organisation's name and the date of the meeting or grant application.

  4. 4

    Click inside of the "Graphic" placeholder. Right-click and select "Change Picture." If you have a company or organisation logo, insert it here. Otherwise, insert a relevant image file from your computer or one from the Microsoft clip art gallery.

  5. 5

    Press the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+S" to save the folder cover. Name it "Folder Cover" or something similar. Keep the file open after saving it.

  6. 6

    Select the "Heading" placeholder and delete it. Select the logo or graphic image. Right-click and select "Format Picture." Go to the "Size" tab and change the scale to "75%." Select the placeholder with your organisation's name or other information and add your contact information, such as address and phone number.

  7. 7

    Go to the "File" menu or tab and select "Save As." Name the file "Folder Back Cover" or something similar and save it. Print both covers and insert them into the front and back of clear vinyl or plastic folders.
