Whether you’ve been tasked with creating a brochure to support your local chamber of commerce, or with designing a promotional piece for your foreign studies class, sometimes detailing information on an interesting travel location requires an interesting way to produce the information itself. If you’ve chosen an A4 size for your travel brochure, let Microsoft Word help you by finding an appropriate template to work with.

Open Microsoft Word, pull down the “File” menu and click “New.” When the “New Document” pane opens, type “brochure” into the “Search online for” box and click “Go.” You can be more specific, such as “travel brochure,” “Miami brochure” or “island brochure,” but you’ll get fewer results.
Scroll through the brochure templates, click a link to preview one, and choose the “Download” button to open the brochure in the Word workspace.
Pull down the “File” menu, click “Page Setup” and then the “Paper” tab. Type 11.7-inches by 8.3-inches as your dimensions. Click “OK” and the brochure automatically adjusts on the screen.
Highlight a placeholder headline on the brochure, then type directly over the top of it with your own information. Repeat this to change all of the headings on the brochure.
Click and highlight the text underneath one of the headlines, then type information about the travel location.
Select a placeholder image on the brochure, then press the “Delete” key. Pull down the “Insert” menu, click “Picture,” and select “From File.” Browse to a location on your computer with an image from your travel spot.
Highlight the placeholder contact information on the brochure and type over it with your own details.
Tips and warnings
- Your basic home printer is probably not set up to be able to handle printing your A4 travel brochure, since most inexpensive printers can only print sizes of 11-inches by 8.5-inches. You’ll need to save your files and take or send them to a printer. Before committing to the job, request a quote. Because A4 is a non-traditional size, your printer may charge you slightly more, since the printing press will have to be reconfigured and the paper may require hand-cutting.
